A date with H.

H was feeling sad because S was invited to go play raquetball with a friend and H wasn't invited. In H's eyes, this friend is equally his. I suggested that H and I go out for Hot Chocolate. He thought that would be great, especially since he is basically banned from chocolate. I suggested 7-11. He was game.

We drove downtown together. H and I, out for a treat. It was fun. I wish I could do things like this with my boys more often. We ended up buying a box of donuts to go with the Hot Chocolate. H picked out a Chocolate Chocolate donut... big surprise. He requested two straws for his drink but I don't think he realized how hot it would be. Not exactly a guzzling opportunity. However, we added a couple ice cubes at home. H is happy.

Okay, I know it sounds like we go out every night for treats but rest assured, its been an unusual week. Oh, and last night I googled McDonalds Hot Fudge Sundae and found out it has more than 350 calories. I don't think its worth it! Do you?


  1. I love those little impromptu dates with our kids.

    They go a very long way.

    I also think that Seven Eleven has the best hotchocolate.

    Glad you got to do that. Neat, for him & for you!

    Missed you on Thursday.

  2. Mama/son dates are AWESOME! It will be something he'll remember for a LONG time!
    And on the hot fudge sundae...I think it depends on the day whether it's worth it or not! :P

  3. Sounds like a fun time had by all. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I love those dates too. When it's me and my 8 year old out on a date, it's one of my most cherished moments in time. You are a cute mom!

  7. M just went on a date with DH and loved it. She'd been asking and asking. I really think those one on one times are so important.

    Hot chocolate and donuts!! What could be a more perfect date in the winter?

  8. What a fun date! And I am drooling over all the goodies. Hot fudge sundaes might be worth the 350 occasionally.
