Date with Sambo

Last night I took Sambo out for a date. Since we’d been given some fun gift cards, we set out to redeem them. First stop was somewhere I had never ever been.

It was good for me to practice not always having to direct or be intentional about every little thing we do. He loved it. Of course we settled in the Dr Seuss corner for a bit.

However the evening was not without mess and excitement. In the car, he busted open an egg coloring packet and decided to eat the “candy.” Needless to say, he was a partially dyed egg after that.

That boy keeps me on my toes.

  1. What a fun time for a three-year old to have a date w/his momma! Great memories…even the dyed little boy at the end. Where’s a pic of that?? =)
