MOMMY AND ME

I'm sure you've heard of mommy and me dates. Where the mom and child go on a special date together. Well, even though every day is kind of like a mommy and me date for us, Elliott and I decided to make a date around Hoboken.
We walked around for a while and saw a pretty cool fire station. But after a while of walking, Elliott expressed he was hungry. I had a Starbucks gift card so we went there for lunch. He got to pick whatever he wanted and I was pretty surprised by his choices. We split a bagel and OJ and he had an applesauce pouch. And I had some money left on the card so I bought the Hunger Games soundtrack. Yes I did.
Then we hit up some great sales. He literally walked out of the store with this on. I'm not quite sure how I missed it. Sneaky little guy.
That's right. A park on an island literally on the Hudson.
The really cool super big playground was overrun with tweens who were trampling the younger kids, so we played at the baby playground. He still loved it.
We walked all over Hoboken and loved it. Hoboken is only one square mile, but there is so much packed into it, it feels like we will never do it all! We had a great time and Elliott asked if we could "go a date" again tomorrow. Sure bud. I'd love to!

  2. That's very cool. I do these with my son. We call them Adventure Days. Here's our latest: http://www.thebookofjimmy.com/adventure-day-04112012/, down to the National Portrait Gallery in DC. I hope we can keep it up.
