My date with another man...

I went on a very romantic date last night - with another man.

As soon as my date saw me he told me I was beautiful.  Then he hugged me and told me I smelled pretty.

When we were on our way to the restaurant, and I asked my date what music he would like to listen to, he replied, "What would you like to listen to?"

My date was quite the gentleman.

My date was with a 4 year old...my son Luke.

Last Christmas my husband took Emma on their first date.  They both dressed up and he took her out on the town.  Needless to say, she is super excited about their upcoming one in a few weeks, and Lily will be going on her first date this year as well.  But Luke and I have never done anything just the two of us that was really special.  And I thought it was about time.

I could tell you all the details but throughout the night my heart was exploding with pride and love for my little boy who was so loving, and polite and gentlemanly.  He opened doors for me, waited for me to sit first, used his manners correctly in all situations, and was so excited to hold my hand the whole night.

Sometimes as a mommy I get lost in the muck and mire of discipline, correction, and training.  Sometimes I feel the only word out of my mouth is "no" all day long.  Sometimes I feel like I haven't been able to truly connect with any one of my children all day long.  But then I have moments like the one I had last night, and I am reminded that I have the best profession in the whole world.


All I can say is this...whoever he marries, she is going to be one lucky lady!

Aww Melissa, that is so beautiful. We need to make our children feel special. That's one of the things I wrote in my first book, 25 Ways To Make your Children Feel Special.' (shameless plug) But my daughter and I have quarterly mommy daughter days and she has father daughter days with my husband. One mommy daughter day we dressed formal and went to an elegant restaurant in Downtown Detroit, Everyone was in awe and asked were we going to a wedding. We said no, It's mommy daughter day and they were stunned. Keep up the good work and happy dating:)

It is a true testament to your parenting skills that he exhibits the mark of a true gentleman at only 4 years old. Sometimes treating them as an equal gets the message across faster than the normal way of preaching it to them. You and your husband apparently set a great example. I'm new to your blog and can tell it will be one of my daily reads.
