just a mom figuring it out one day at a time

Date Night

She laid out her dress and got a new pair of tights and headband–all in preparation for her big date. He showed up in a suit and carried a wrist corsage.

As she opened the box a huge smile spread across KC’s face. We told CJ to take notes, he in turn rolled his eyes.  Girls seem to not even be on the horizon for him and that is more than fine with me.

Tom and KC left for dinner and now I’m getting the blow by blow.  She picked Macaroni Grill where she is getting–of course– mac-n-cheese and she apparently decided that no date would be complete without a little wine:


After dinner they will go to a Girl Scout Daddy Daughter dance and then head home.

Knowing how excited KC was for her big night, I thought about it and asked CJ if he would like to have a “date” with good ole mom. His response?

“Yeah, but can just get takeout and watch a movie?”

Yup, he’s my kinda kid.  So I’m off now to pickup our Chinese and hang with my tween, grateful for this moment because I know soon enough he’ll rather be hanging with his friends on a Friday night than with his mom.
