Hot date...

I had a hot date tonight with a guy that is not my husband.

I had an awesome time with him. We had dinner. We danced. I made him promise that we would do it all again very soon. And then I drove him home because he doesn’t have his license yet. Actually, it will be about another 10 years before he gets it. That’s right… my ‘date’ was with my 6 year old son.

Tonight was the Mother/ Son ‘sports themed’dance at the community center, and Davis and I had so much fun. It was completely his idea… he asked me last week if I wanted to go. I was very surprised, to say the least. I thought he’d have no interest at all, but when he spotted the sign at the community center, I heard about nothing else this last week.

Thinking that he’d change his mind when he heard about the dancing part of it, I said, “You want to dance with me? You want to be my date?” His response? “Mommy, I love you. I want to marry you!” Awwwww! My heart melted. But I told him in no uncertain terms that I was off the market. ;)

We went tonight with a group of my girlfriends and their sons, and we all had a blast, eating nachos, dancing and playing games. The community center had hired a DJ and he kept everyone on their feet, dancing to ‘Greased Lightning’, ‘Twist & Shout’, and, of course, ‘The Chicken Dance’. Davis and I even won 3rd prize in the ‘dance-off’… we so totally rock!

Before I put him to bed, he said, “Mommy, that was so much fun.” I had to agree, and it made me realize that I need to do a better job at carving out time for him…time for just the two of us. He’s an amazing kid, and he makes me laugh. In fact, of all my kids, he’s the one that most shares my sense of humor. Tonight was a night for the two of us to connect.

Of course, when I make him clean up his room tomorrow, he’ll probably want a divorce. ;)
