"Daddy, I want to date mommy"
Today was Liam's first trip. He is very much a daddy's boy and loves to follow him around the house. So he never really showed an interest in going before. Not to mention my above weakness in patience with potty training. So, this morning I told Liam if he was really good and made a happy bowl at lunch (we had salad and he hates to have to chew so much) that he could go on a date with me. Daddy was helping him eat and he said "I make happy plate daddy so I can go, I want to Date Mommy" we all laughed and were cheering him on. So he continued to remind everyone for the rest of the meal, after every bite, that he was dating mommy today!
It was just grocery shopping but it was a grand event. He got a special drink, and even asked to use the potty. As you can probably imagine this would normally frustrate me but since he has NEVER asked to use the potty before, I was all over it with excitement. We turned the chart into a race car and Liam did sound effects and all to get to the potty on time.
It was a false alarm, actually three of them, but hey it was worth it!!
I highly encourage all to date your children if at all and when at all possible!!!
