Moments to cherish

We decided to take the kids out to dinner last night, and went to a really nice place here in town. It's a pub/family restaurant, and we obviously were on the family side. It was the 4 of us, and a family that could have been us in about 15 years. It was 2 parents and 2 grown sons, sitting a few feet away. The mom looked at me and in one glance and small smile seemed to say "I remember being in your shoes".

While we were waiting for our meal, we were trying to keep the kids amused. Rob and Colby were chatting about something, and then all of a sudden Colby pipes up in his loud but serious voice

"I had a bit of snot in my nose but don't worry I got it out"

Rob and I could only chuckle, because really, what do you say to that? I'm sure if I could had read the mind of the mother at the next table she would have been laughing and thinking "Been there, done that". I'm sure I heard a muffled chuckle from her table, or maybe that was just me.

Very cute!!

That was at the Ptarmigan?? Make sure you and Rob have a date night and get to the other side and have beer and wings!

Rob, Tina and the boys said...

Megan: WOO HOO!

Kara: Nope, it was at Eddy's. I don't know if we will get the date night because we don't know anyone around here to babysit. Can you recommend a good place around here for a haircut? I have an appointment booked at the Body and Hair Hut just because it's the only place I saw when we first moved here and it took like 2 weeks to get the appointment. Recommendations?

My son number two at about 2.5 years of age once backed out of a very public washroom right into the restaurant backed over with behind exposed and yelled "Mom you need to wash my bum."

Same son the next month said in a very loud voice when he first saw a baby of asian parentage (probably chinese) "mom, look at the monkey."

Same restaurant both times. We never went there agin.

Doncha love boys?! I remember ours doing humilating things when they were little...wait, actually it was today. When S1 was about 3 he was pushing on his nose and when I asked him what he was doing he said he was "rearranging my nose"-the boogers were bothering him. What 3 year old even knows was rearranging means??

Thanks for your comment about S2's surgery. I am really nervous but know he will be fine....just a mom thing and really prom kinda is like a wedding--lol so I will pass on to him that he most likely will be able to go :)
