a date with my boys.
March 04, 2014
Recently my sweet MIL came over early in the morning so that Chris and I could sneak away for a quick breakfast date before he started working for the day. I woke up and had gotten Ainsleigh and Apple ready for her. Aiden was still asleep when she first got there and as I tiptoed by his bed to grab my glasses he began to stir. I whispered, "Hey buddy, daddy and I are going to go for a quick breakfast and then I will be right back for a fun day with you." He sat up and climbed into my lap, cutest bed head ever, and slumped onto my shoulder.... "maybe this time I could come with you?" Just then Chris walked in, heard his little request and told him what a great idea that was and to hurry and get ready.
He kept saying " oh thank you so much for letting me come on your date and I am so happy you changed your mind!" It was the sweetest. Chris and I try to take them one on one individually but it isn't very often that we can take them on dates the two of us! I knew Apple would go down for her morning nap and Ainsleigh would get the morning with grandma, full attention, which was a dream for her! So win-win all around!
Are you seeing this face above? I can't even handle it!
Two of the most handsome boys looking at me on a sweet early morning date. We got chocolate chip pancakes and he beamed with pride. I could tell his little love tank was filling up and spilling over as he told us stories, asked us questions and at one point even sang a little song.
My precious Aiden will be 5 this month and I have so many thoughts and emotions about it. He is growing and changing by the day and I just could not be more proud of who he is. He loves so big and so well. Also thankful for a sweet hubby that loves our kiddos in a way that I always dreamed of.
Bonding over chocolate chip pancakes, a pile of whip cream and the cutest little grin- it was a perfect little date with my two favorite guys.
