Momma date night!!

Oh my, so it has come to our attention that perhaps Noah James has been feeling a bit neglected as of late.  Things have been so crazy the last month, with the start of school in addition to everything else we have going on.  So I realized I needed to carve out some one-on-one time with each of the boys, starting with Noah.  So I proposed the idea of a date night with just the two of us and he was ecstatic!  He even got all dressed up for me - picked his outfit even though it was a billion degrees out. 

And he was so cute cause he got his wallet and put his money in it to pay for our dinner and stuff.  So so so adorable.  He was so nervous to use it.  :)  As soon as we walked in to the restaurant he pulled it out of his pocket and started to give it to the hostess.  Quite possibly the most adorable thing ever. He also opened the door for me and was so proud of himself.  As we got closer to the front he started running just so he could get there first.  His daddy told him this before he left and I could tell he concentrated on not forgetting the entire drive there.  Of course he requested we go to has favorite restaurant, Johnny Carinos, and he was super thrilled cause he got to order Dr. Pepper.  He was so grown up and even ordered his own food.  After we ate we went to Barnes and Noble, just like Josh and I do.  He really liked that we were doing the same thing and he even got to pick out a book to bring home.

Now the one thing he told me would make date night "perfect" would be if we ate cake. He told me this that morning when I was half asleep, still in bed.  I agreed that was a good idea in my half-awake state.  I assumed this meant that we would have a piece of cake at the restaurant.  Later in the day, though, I heard him tell Wy we were bringing a cake home.  That's right, a cake.  As in the whole thing.  So I started to correct him and you should have seen his heartbroken face - evidently he asked for a whole cake that morning and I had said yes, that was a great idea.  So I didn't want to go back on my word, so I figured we would stop by the grocery store on our way home to pick up a cake.  So that afternoon he comes up to me and says, "Mom, I can't believe we're getting  a cake like at Maddie's birthday party."  Huh??  That was a cookie cake.  Yup, the kid thought we were getting a cookie cake.  SO YES, we went out to the outlet mall and picked up a cake on our way home.  Noah requested that it say "Noah and Mommy's Special Day."  So so so sweet!  Of course I had to repeat a hundred times we would never again do this, just this one time.  :)

Of course you know who was oh so sad cause he didn't get to go with us.  You can see his teeny little eye brow is so far down over his eyes.  We promised him that he would get to go with me the next Tuesday, but he was still so sad.  We even got his school calendar out and circled the day we would go so he could better understand.  And still, the next morning I went to get them up and the first words out of his mouth were "I'm so excited we're going on our date tonight!"  I started to correct him and tell him it wasn't for another whole week, but Josh said we should go ahead and go out that night.  So I had 2 dates in a row!!  I'll write about Wyatt's date later!! :)

Ummm...that's so stinking cute! I LOVE that he tried to pay the hostess. What a sweet boy. :) Next time I see you, I'm going to be sure to tell me that you promised me a cookie cake in your sleep too. What a great idea! :)
