We had a very special, parent-child date night tonight. Lex and I went for haircuts, dinner, and Christmas shopping while Alan took Eve out to dinner. Alan was excited to take her out for Indian food (I hate Indian food!) but I think they may have ended up at Chilis. Eve’s most exciting moment, according to her, was when the cake came while they were in the bathroom. (I presume it came to the table, not the bathroom). She was very excited about and told me the story several times.
Lex and I had a great night. Haircuts for both of us and he was awesome! He sat in the chair for a new lady and even let her use the clippers. Then he explored the place, quietly and calmly, while I got my hair cut. He was even saying hello to random people and chatting it up with the stylist. :) So cute!! Then we went to the toystore where I was able to sneak a few little things for him into my purchase. He was absorbed with the cool train table. Then to dinner and the bookstore, where we discovered TONS of TOYS!! He was thrilled! But tired, and ended up sitting quietly reading books while I browsed. It was such a sweet night and he was sooo happy to be on a date with mommy that he was on his best behavior. I loved it!!
