We had a date, just my son and I.
His choice….the skate-park with a trip to Lamar’s Doughnuts afterward.
I went to grab my camera and he asked me to leave it , he wanted my full and undivided attention.
I was happy to comply with his wishes. I did get to actually watch him scooter around instead of being preoccupied with capturing it on camera. It was great to live the experience rather than being concentrated on documenting it.
My favorite moment on our date…….A quite talk in the car on the way home where he said ” You know what Mom? I really, really love you.”
Does that melt your heart or what?
I will try and think of that moment the next time he slugs his sister or blows me off when I ask him clean up.
After we got home he agreed to one pic, but it had to be quick.
