Whenever my husband takes my two oldest sons somewhere for an extended time, my youngest son and I have what he calls a "Mommy and Nick" date. It often consists of a small shopping trip, errands, and dinner at Steak 'n Shake (his favorite) complete with milkshakes at the end.
Today, the "big boys" were off at a movie marathon and it was date night for us. We went to dinner, got our milkshakes, stopped for snacks at the grocery store then headed home and played some video games on the Wii and watched an episodes of "Fuller House"
I really enjoy these times together, because I know it's only a matter of a few years until my boys will be too busy to spend time hanging out with their old mom. It's all about the simple things and just enjoying spending time together.
