I had a date today!
Okay, my date happened to be my 9 year old Bug, but I got your attention, right? My personal life is non existent, don’t judge me.
Anyway, Bug and I went to get my paycheck, and then we decided we had a need for ice cream. I like to try to take advantage of one on one time with my kids as they arise, as the mom of five children. Bug is always fun though. He is my youngest, my baby, and he is the last remaining child that has complete confidence in me. He is amazing, that kid. Once he is away from the normal craziness of our house, he loses a lot of the immaturity that I worry about at home. He is so smart, and so funny, and so much fun to be with it’s incredible. We chatted about the upcoming school year (he doesn’t want to go to school. but wants to see his friends) why he is mad at his brother (he is mean and won’t let him hang out with him and his friends) and lots of other things. I felt a reluctance to go home, to end this sweet, perfect time with my son, but eventually we did go home, and played video games, and built with his kenex set. I let them talk me into ordering pizza for dinner, and I didn’t once give my usual nutrition lecture. It was a good day.
