J was invited to a birthday party this morning. To get a gift, J and I went to a store last night. But J thought it was a date - when he gets out of house only with Mommy, that's a date. Why not? We made it a date. We went to pick up a toy for his friend, ran a couple of errands, then we head out for donuts (it was a bit windy and cool to eat ice cream outside, otherwise we would have headed to our favorite local ice cream stand).
We made a couple of more stops after donuts to library and a nearby school playground. He just kept extending the date! (Hmmm, maybe that came from his dad...) So, it was a good date.
