First, it’s easier than cooking and cleaning. 🙋 Second, when you’ve been with the munchkin for multiple days and nights, you could use a little break yourself! 👍🏻Third, the quality one-on-one time is priceless. And fourth, it’s just so much darn fun!
It doesn’t have to be pricey! There are ways to get creative with it: eat a bit before you go, pick places with kids deals (some even do “kids eat free” days), or just split a large meal between the two of you and add an extra side or two if needed! 👌🏻
This was my breakfast diner date with this lil walrus this morning. (second picture for reference. 😂 And no, I didn’t take the second pic. 📷 credit: Wikipedia ☺️ We grabbed dinner last night, and we juuuuuust might do it again tonight! 🤷♀️🎉
No question his daddio is being missed though, and probably more so this trip than any other – or maybe it just seems that way because Thatcher’s finally really communicating it more. Annnnnd I have to say, it’s just the most precious thing to hear… 😍😍😍😍😍
This morning: “Mom, where’s dad? Thatcher miss dad”. This afternoon: “Mom, Thatcher excited to see dad”. And just now, “Mom, Thatcher take a rocket ship to see dad”. 🚀❤️ At least he’s getting more productive by the hour… 😂😉
He’ll be home soon little man. And in the meantime, how about one more date! 🙂
