On Sunday I went on a first date. After all these years. He was way out of my league; much younger than me, with tousled, sunshine blond hair and deep ocean blue eyes. He was amazing company; laughed at my jokes, told me I was beautiful. Charmed me into paying for dinner. I think I bought him some clothes and a gift too afterwards.
Our first Momma and Little Adventurer date.
Miraculous doesn’t even come close to describing this date. This was an experience that two years ago, I never believed could ever happen…in fact, I was pretty sure it never would. Those days when Our Little Adventurer, the apple of my eye, refused to sit still for more than three minutes and had us chasing him around Pizza Express before we accepted our defeat seemed never ending. I cursed parents who posted photos of their little ones in chic sushi bars, whilst we were house and picnic bound for dinner.
