Today Oscar and I went on a date. Leaving the house was my priority to get my mind off of being NOT in labor. And we have a few weeks left of morning movies this summer so we decided to go. We saw Bee Movie and enjoyed every minute. We even met some friends for a bit but parted ways mid-movie. As it was getting closer to naptime, Oscar offered me some rare snuggle time. Of course this always melts my heart, but he really laid it on when he held my hand and asked for a kiss on the mouth AND a hug.
My sweet boy.
After the movie, we had lunch at Chick-Fil-A and again he was totally agreeable and fun. The manager even gave us each a mini taste of the the new Peach milkshake (yum) and we both had lemonade.
It wasn’t until we got home and I laid him down for his nap that I realized this will probably be our last date just the two of us. I know we will have special times where it’s just us or just he and daddy, but our family of three is about to become four and it will all change. I know it will change for the better, but I still cherish these past 2.5 years when we were simply three.
Oscar is the best son a mother could ask for and I know he is going to be an amazing big brother. I am so proud to be his mama and while the waterworks are going as I type (blaming hormones here) I am not sad.
My cup runneth over.
