I was wearing sweats and hadn't showered since before my run.
Not a bit of makeup could be found on my face.
Still, my date proudly held my hand. Date night was his request.
We shopped, rode the carousel and shared a snack.
At the end of the night, as I stretched out beside him, he sweetly said, "I love you, Mom."
I gently kissed his forehead and quietly shut his door, but not before saying, "I love you too, my little man."
May this only be the beginning of many special outings together.
