Jacob and I went on a date tonight to Red Robin. It's been awhile since we've spent any one-on-one time together (besides homeschooling, which totally does NOT count!), so it was long overdue. He was so cute because when we were looking at the menu, I told him several choices for our appetizer. He picked the "Tower of Onion Rings" for us "because that's the one Mommy likes best". What a gentleman! Afterwards, he went grocery shopping with me and was a big helper. I am so thankful for the time we spent together this evening. In all of the frustrations of parenting, I sometimes forget what a great kid Jacob really is!
