Date Night with The Boy
Recently, a friend of mine went on a "date" with her son. I thought "Wow - what a great idea! I'm going to do that too." Last night The Husband was not around and The Girl was away at a sleep-over party. I didn't want to sit around at home and remembered my friend's date. I decided it was the perfect time!
I had let The Boy say late at school to play (he stays at "aftercare" and he loves to play football and whatever with his friends). I picked him up and told him we were going on a date. Being an 11-yr-old boy, he looked at me and rolled his eyes so far that I thought they'd get stuck in the back of his head.
"Moooommmmm...that's just plain creepy!" is what I think he said!
Anyway, I let him choose where to go to dinner. It was OK - nothing spectacular. Then, we ran some errands and ended up at the grocery so we could get some candy and drinks to smuggle into the theater. (Remember last time when I dropped way too much money?!) Then, we headed to the theater. We decided to see Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, and what a great choice that was! We both loved the first one, and this one was even funnier. I don't want to type anything about it; I hate when I inadvertently stumble upon a movie spoiler!
Anyway, it was a great evening and something I definitely want to do again!
