He was tired, a little cranky and totally starving. Starving? He'd eaten all of his lunch at school and a large portion of crackers from our favorite admin assistant. He was howling when we left school about how hungry he was...bless Mrs. B's heart, she always has a stash of snacks at school behind her desk. What would we do without her? We've replenished it for her a few times because I'm sure my son has depleted it on more than one occasion. Just for the record, he has enough lunch for 2 people in his bag and I pack extra granola bars and fruit in my purse. It's still never enough! He's as skinny as a rail too. Can you say JEALOUS? I wish I could eat like him!
So, our date together. My son is so dang cute. He's in a phase of not wanting his picture taken so you'll have to pardon the expressions. We ordered Panera's chicken noodle and creamy tomato soups with half sandwiches. I picked the tomato basil on ciabatta (yum! Although, it's a bummer they don't have a veggie protein-based sandwich choice.) and he chose grilled cheese. Both were delicious!

All in all a great date and I would say, mission accomplished. We held hands, skipped along in the parking lot, talked about silly stuff and I snuck in some snuggles here and there. I sneak those in now because he doesn't volunteer them like he used to. Did I mention he's only 5? Oh, the time sure does fly by... I will say he was a lot less cranky by the end of our date and actually quiet on the way to basketball practice. Maybe there's something to this? Who knows? Up next, my daughter...
