It Says Something about Us

Rebecca and our five year old, Ben, had a funny conversation. It went something like this . . .

"Mom, I want to go on a date with you."
"Not a smooching, cuddling, buying diapers date like with dad, but alone time with just you and me."
He got us there. Our dates usually do include Costco or Walmart. I can only image what his perception of dating will be when he gets older. He picks up his first date and they head striaght to Walmart . . . you just got to have those diapers.
