Book Date One

Tonight was the first of our "book reading dates". We started this last year, for every 24 hours of reading the kids earn a date with mom or dad. Seth was the first to reach his goal a couple of weeks ago, so tonight I utilized my live in babysitter and we went out on the town.

He was very excited about our date. This afternoon, as I was planning for our school week next week, Seth ran upstairs and changed into a dress shirt, dress pants and did his hair.

When we were about to leave I ran upstairs to run a brush through my hair, when there was a knock on the door.

"Mom it's your date" giggled Kylee.

I ran downstairs and opened the door and there was my little guy standing there with a rose. I am sure he snagged it from the neighbors, since my roses quit producing....last year. He also handed me the buy one get one free coupon we were planning on using. I laughed and told him he probably shouldn't hand his date the coupon his is planning on using!

We posed while my my babysitter took a couple of pictures, and we were about ready to leave when he asked me in such a proper voice ,"may I please use your toilet before we go?"

I about cracked up. I told him of course and then he just looked at me, waiting for me to tell him where it was. Yeah, he was taking this date stuff serious! I showed him to the restroom and then we were ready to go.

We went to dinner and had a great night. Great conversation and delicious food. Very fun.

And last but not least, we stopped at Starbucks for some salted caramel hot chocolate. Let me just say there aren't words to describe this hot chocolate and if you haven't tried it, you really need to. Yum!
