My mom was able to come down and visit this weekend. It had been a few weeks and I knew she needed a Hunter fix and I needed a mom fix. Watching my mother and my son together just makes my heart happy. He sure does love his grandma and I know the feeling is mutual. So on Saturday, after I returned from a much needed haircut we all hung out until Kristian and I left for dinner.
My mom introduced Hunter to his first Freezer Pop.
He sucked on it and replied "Old", which is how he says cold.
He then wanted to check out the pretty flowers that his daddy has planted.
Kristian and I left a little earlier than normal because we wanted to stop at a few places before dinner and do some shopping for clothes to take on our Cayman Islands trip. My husband very rarely gets new clothes and most of his shorts are stained or have holes in them so we needed a few things that would make him look a bit more presentable. We also each wanted to buy something new to wear to the actual wedding, which is the reason we are going. I found a cute pink dress at Marshalls and he bought some white linen pants and a blue polo shirt. It was fun to just walk around and shop and pick stuff out for each other. Most men would probably find that torturous but pretty much anything we get to do together without the toddler is a fun.
Afterwards we went to a new restaurant that we wanted to try called Firebirds. It was delicious and we had the best time together, just talking, laughing, flirting and leisurely eating without having to jump up every 2 seconds to get something for the toddler or try to keep him entertained or rush through it because we still need to do bathtime. We got to have real conservations, ones that surprisingly didn't just focus on said toddler.
*A Desert Pear martini- very good and gave me a nice little buzz*
*Their wall of wine- I kinda want to do this in my house*
And then we got to return home to a sleeping child and a clean house (aren't mothers wonderful) and hang out in the basement together watching a movie on t.v. while my mom hung out upstairs (very much like high school!).
Nights like these are great reminders of why we got married, because we truly enjoy each other's company and spending time together. And that we aren't just mommy and daddy we are husband and wife.
