When I got back home from my trip to Africa Jack was anxious to give me a “date coupon”- which entitled he and I to one date together. We ended up going to Puffy Muffin for a breakfast date and I thoroughly enjoyed the company (while Jack thoroughly enjoyed his french toast sticks!). Seriously, it was really nice to be able to just concentrate on one child- for once- and I think it’s something we will need to start building into the calendar. Jack wanted to sit on my lap while we waited for the food and then again while waiting for the check, something he hasn’t been able to do for years- there always seems to be a Luke or a Lily on my lap! Neither of us could imagine life without “L & L” as we fondly call them, but it was a treat to be out just the two of us!
