fun mom and son date ideas

i read once, somewhere, that dating your kids was just as important as dating your spouse.  especially because getting quality one on one time with your kid's is one of the most important things we as parents can do to positively influence our children's growth and development. 

there are many hats we wear as moms.  and one of them is being a friend and confidant to our kids.  so this idea of dating my kids made a lot of sense to me.  so i talked to dave about it and we decided that every month we would each take our turn doing parent-child dates with our kids; going places that stick within our monthly budget, but that also interested the child we were taking on the date and really allowed us as parents to just enjoy our time with them.

Currently, these outings have consisted of going to the arcade, stopping by one of the many local cupcake joints in our city, or getting ice cream.  all things that are really simple, fun, and easy to bond on while doing.

this month, it was my turn to take isaac out on a date.  and when i asked him where he wanted to go, he of course excitedly said that he wanted to go the ice cream store.  so off we went!  each ordering our favorite ice cream flavors...cookies and cream for him, and mint chocolate chip for me with a cones placed on top...and then tucking ourselves in a back corner booth to enjoy our treat and just talk about isaac's favorite new jokes, things he wants to do, and what he is currently loving/hating about life right now.
