We invited his girlfriend BUT she was out of town so it was just the two of us at the park on a WONDERFUL fall evening!
Hubs took Elijah to the TU football game along with his football team and their families. I was footballed out! Yes 'footballed' is a word! The team got to go out onto the field and even made it on the 10 o'clock news! Woohoo!
I decided I needed a night out and I found the perfect young man to join me!
He is a little hottie!
Irresistible in fact!
Yes, he is a little stubborn or headstrong like myself but again the irresistible part took over.
He didn't have money since he is jobless but I offered to pay.
He has a few minor obsessions and I catered to them all!
Here he is the much younger man I dated for one evening
I know, right! I am one lucky lady!
Parks are his fun obsession. We went to "his" park.... just the two of us. All of his birthday parties have been at this park so he has claimed it as his own. Not many little boys have their very own park!
He's a real swinger! lol
The next stop is his favorite obsession of all.....ICE CREAM! We went to Braum's and out of all of those flavors he still picked his trusty favorite - "baniwa" or vanilla as we know it! This kid loves ice cream. I hardly ever buy it since welllllll I love it too and I will eat it. Meme always have "baniwa" ice cream for him but we went to the ice cream store....just the two of us!
After one scoop of ice cream and one for the road.....I know "sucker" right.....we went to Target to check out the Halloween costume aisles which totally sucked by the way. They normally have like four aisles of just costumes but this new Target just had one aisle. ONE for kids and adults, seriously Target you are letting me down here! We walked through ALL the toy aisles where he claimed to want "all the boy toys and no girl toys" for his birthday. I said, "ok!" The boys know I don't just buy them toys everytime we go to the store so both of them ask for everything for their birthdays and I say yes! They won't remember by then and don't realize how far away their birthdays are.....if they only knew how close Christmas is!! Hey it works with no begging and no tears! Then we went home and I must admit I still got it.......I totally wear out my dates!
He didn't even make it to his bed and crashed about 5 minutes after we arrived back home! A perfect ending to a perfect date with my little man!
We have been together for 11 1/2 yrs and married for almost 9 yrs. YES the halves count!! He is my best friend, partner and father to our boys! I can't imagine where I would be without him! We have both changed so much (for the better) since we found each other! He knows me better than anyone on this Earth and loves me regardless of my TWO flaws! lol
Elijah is our 10 yr. old kind hearted boy! He loves to play sports and he is our little genius! He is focused and determined in whatever he does. He is sooo loving and cares deeply about ALL things nature! He is inquisitive and can not seem to ask enough questions about history, wars, Indians, foreign travel and animals. He is so inquisitive you sometimes feel like you are being questioned by the FBI under a heat lamp!
Isaiah is our 7 yr old handful! He is ornery, cute but so loving that it makes him irrestible! He can be so ornery one minute then walk up and say the sweetest thing. He loves to play and he keeps us on our toes! He is his daddy's mini me in every way. So much so that sometimes it freaks me out. He has become quite the little athlete too and I think one day he will overpower his big brother who loves to push his emotional roller coaster buttons!!
Tez is my 16 yr old stepson who came to live with us in Dec 2007. He is fun loving, shy at first but respectful and friendly! He loves sports and video games. He has special needs but just needed lots of love and structure to reach his full potential.
