V-day Date #3
Another mid-day lunch date, smack dab in the middle of a school day.
For lunch we had ice cream and french fries, while we colored paper hats and place mats, and counted the balloons.
This one isn't a big talker or interact-er at restaurants. The noise, the lights, the commotion, it kinda overwhelms him. And of course there's always the concern that his food won't come before we have to head back to school.
I'm not sure what was his favorite part: leaving school for lunch or the actual lunch itself.
Either way, I scored major mom points.
I'll be honest, the lack of "I'm so happy to be here" feedback , has hurt my feelings from time to time.
Which is silly because I know it's not personal, it's just his way.
But regardless of how much we talk or smile at each other during our dates together, when bedtime comes those nights, he always thanks me for his special date and tells me how wonderful I am.
And I always feel ridiculous for doubting that he had a good time.
This sweet sweet boy of mine. Wanting nothing more than to be happy and to make others happy.
His simple ways melt my heart and remind me how LUCKY I am to be his mama.
