The Big Guy And I  

Posted by Heidi in

We're doing a mother-son date today as we do most Fridays. It usually consists of me driving him to a spot in which to procure some kind of chow beyond my culinary skills. He insists on getting it "to go". So we go. We come home and I sit and watch him eat because it's supposed to be a date, for pity sakes, and that's what one does on a date--spend time together.

I haven't heard the term for pity sakes in a long time - hope you have fun! Haven't figured out my mormon mommy blog account yet. Is it just me?

I need to be better about dating my children. My husband is excellent at it, but me? Not so much.

Sounds like a fun date :) He probably can't wait for Fridays! Kai and I have dates like that too...

On my way!

That is really cool that you are doing that. I'm sure he likes it.

I am heading over to the MMB to check your post out. Have a great weekend.

I love spending time with the kids (or grandkids) one on one.

I'm totally going to make my kids go on dates with me (first I'd like them out of diapers.) I like that you just watch him eat. I did that on a real actual date when I was a teenager, and let me tell you, your son is lucky to have you because I never went out with that bag o' excitement again.

I read your MMB post - very awesome. The view in which you see your son makes me think that you're probably his superman too.

p.s. I'm going to go order your book on Amazon because HOW DID I MISS IT? Really. I love Jane Austen era romantic comedies. My husband can concur - seeing as I force him to watch all the old BBC series of that era- and I force him to act happy about it too.

Loved the guest post!

What a sweet post. I loved reading it. And I agree, your son does look a lot like Clark. Very handsome!

May 16, 2009 at 9:27 PM

K love that you do that with your guy... so cute and I need to do that more often.

I'm off to read your guest post!

We call those "one on ones," and they are always treasured times, just being alone together :)

I just want to say I checked out your book from the library. I loved it!! It was funny, witty and a great story with well defined characters.

Thank you for sharing your talent. I can't wait for the your next book.
