Then a few days ago the boys wanted to go to the theater again and see Karate Kid, this time as a family and parents paying...
We told them we want to save our money for our upcoming family trip.
All the boys were a little disappointed- but didn't put up too big a fuss. They are too excited to goto Mainland and visit the cousins and grandparents.
But last night- my son #3 approached me so sweetly and asked, "Mom, can you and I go on a date? Just the two of us?"
I was so flattered - I quickly agreed and asked "So, what are we going to do... on our date?"
Can you guess?
He suggested we go see the movie Karate Kid. (And said for it to be a real date we should share popcorn and soda too.)
The other boys are a bit deflated that he gets to go to the movie-- but at the same time--- kicking themselves that they never thought of that!
I predict in the future, my date schedule is going to start filling up fast... my husband might have some competition... (tee heee)
My husband is going to stay home with the other boys tonight- while I have a one-on-one with son #3. I know he just wants to see the movie- but I thought he should be rewarded for his clever thinking.
Kids! What can you do when they start outsmarting you?
