It wasn’t fancy.
Some would say it wasn’t a date at all.
I was afraid she’d be disappointed. After all, her mommy/daughter date wish was a trip to the mall. Not sure if we can squeeze that in. Dillons and Walmart pale in comparison. Also, her brother got to go to a Royals baseball game for his date!
But, it was just us. Just us enjoying a meal. Just us puttering around the store. Just us as she thanked me for taking her to eat. Just us as her eyes turned to saucers at the fluffy, flavorful Tropical Sno treat. Her first. “Ohmygosh, Mom. This is not a sno cone. It’s so much better!”
We giggled about wanting a medium until we saw how huge the small was. I reminisced about my first Tropical Sno treat in college, and how my friends and I would walk 2 miles from campus to get one.
Moms, your children don’t want the fancy. They don’t desire the expensive. They don’t long for the unparalleled.
They want your undivided attention. They want to share secrets and smiles. They want to push the cart with you, and hear your praise.
It was a date, and a Finer one at that!
