Happy Friday!!!

Good morning!
It's Friday and I am excited to get this day started! The weekend is just around the corner. I had a "date" last night with my favorite boy in the whole entire world!
We have been doing dates for a long time. The last month and a half have been rough for me and I had not taken him out for that time period. Yesterday I picked him up from daycare after work and off we went. Our dates are always the same - a trip to Target to select a Thomas toy and then to McDonalds for a 6 piece chicken nugget meal with apples and caramel. As we were driving to Target, we were chatting about his day. Then he says " I am glad you are back Auntie. I missed you - did you miss me?" So it looks like 6 weeks can be a long time for a 4 year old. He made comments like "Remember when I was little and we had a date." WOW - I sure do buddy.

Anyway - our weekly dates are back on track and I hope I don't disappoint him ever again. I can't explain how this kid has captured my heart. He is such an angel. So - we had a great time. Singing and dancing in Target - when we started dates - I made up a song that I always sing to him. I love Jamie - I'm not crazy - He's my baby. The funny thing as we walked through Target - he started the song. I think he was reminding me to sing it. So sing it - we did. I ignored all the crazy looks from the other shoppers and sang my heart out to my little monkey.

Other things to be happy about - My Work in Progress kits should arrive today! Wahoo - I will be playing with those babies this weekend. Main, add-on and project. It is also time for another WillowTraders Blog Hop so check back for creative posts!
