A couple Thursdays back was my lunch date with Courtney Lee, this coming up Thursday is my lunch date with Yans, and last Thursday was my lunch date with Coley, who chose to go to The Bohemian Club...
Unfortunately, I got a call from him at 11:30 saying, "Where are you, I thought you were picking me up for lunch?" to which I replied, "I thought your lunch started at 12:30?", to which he then replied, "No mom, Courtney's lunch is at 12:30, mine is at 11:30."
Sadly, I am that kind of mom.
Lucky for me though, Coley knows that I'm that kind of a mom and he loves me anyhow.
He also knows that I'm the kind of mom who sets my camera on its Interval Timer (Thanks Marilou for forcing me to learn how to use that feature.) and takes 30 pictures in a row.
And he still loves me.
And then we talked about what our favorite thing was about each other. (His reply???...That he can talk to me about anything.)
And then we talked about what our least favorite thing was about each other. (His reply?..."Well mom, you know that saying, when mom ain't happy, nobody's happy???")
And then we went to Barnes & Nobles because he had a few gift cards.
He got a New Testament Lego Bible and promtly got it taken away by his Math teacher the next day for reading it in class. (Over the years, if this kid has gotten in trouble at school, the trouble has almost always been related to a book.)
And I got a few books too.
And then we grabbed a couple of mango/banana smoothies from Starbucks before heading to pick the girls up.
And I made a few lunch date cards for anyone who wants them as well...
To use the Lunch Cards below:
- Double-click on the image you want to save.
- Right-click on the enlarged image and then select 'save as' to save the file to your computer.
- Using a photo editing program like Photoshop Elements, resize the image (I think the apple ticket is going to look best at 5x5 and the rectangular ticket will look best at 2.5x3 and 300 dpi.) and then add a name to it using the font of your choice or resize and print them 'as is' and add the name in your own handwriting.
- Surprise your kiddos (or your husband or your sister or your best friend) with them.
*Note that the instructions above should work similarly for both Mac's and PC's.
Oh, and here's a link to the Get Out of Trouble Free cards I shared before.
