tips for a successful mom and max date.

This summer has been absolutely crazy for us. Despite the fact that I was gone for half of it, and busy with other things for most of the rest, Max has been really good. So I decided it was time for us to have a date. So today we had an outing full of some of Max's favorite things, and mom all to himself (well, I may have slipped a couple of things I needed to do into it: lame, I know).

Here's how you do it:

First, it is completely necessary to fall asleep in the car minutes after leaving the house because mom completely bores you by stopping by the bank:

Then go to the bookstore and endure mom picking out a book for herself:

And then FINALLY get to play with the train table:

But have to leave earlier than expected because you throw a MAJOR fit. (I'm 99% sure it was a result of napping in the car)

Then have a happy meal picnic at the park (that was actually a location mom was scouting, sorry buddy):

And to top it all off, stop at Krispy Kreme for some donuts!

It was a good date.


  1. What a cute date you have!

  2. That sounds like a good date for you and Rob, too! I love looking around bookstores and eating donuts!
    What a fun idea!

  3. man, what a beautiful child. at least until he starts growling at you, but really, who wouldn't love that little face.

  4. He's gonna be so grateful for all the fun pictures he has of his childhood. Way to be a cool mommy!
