Family time's good, but sometimes I just need to have a little one-on-one time with my guys. We like to go on dates. Today, school was on a break, and Casey and I planned a little date. He got some gift cards for Barnes and Noble for his birthday, and they were burning a hole in his pocket.
Casey picked out his purchases pretty quickly, so we had time to stop by the Starbuck's for a drink. When your kid's got food allergies, it's often easiest to have a juice or something when you're out, rather than worry about food. Not today!
What did we see when we were paying for our books and drinks? Lucy's cookies. I asked Casey if he wanted some cookies, and he looked at me strangely. (Pretty much saying, "Are you crazy?" with his eyes.) I asked him again, and he said yes.
His smile while he was munching on cookies and reading his books was not only the highlight of the date, but possibly of the week.
Thank you, Lucy's, for making yummy cookies that my boy could enjoy, and thank you Starbuck's for carrying them. It is such a gift for us to have this kind of normal experience. While others might take having a snack at a cafe for granted, we sure don't.
