I had tickets to take Nathaniel to see A Year with Frog & Toad at a nearby college this past weekend (St. Patrick's Day). Nate talked about it for weeks. I looked forward to an afternoon out, just me and my Bug.
The morning of the show, I reminded Nate to wear something "handsome" (that's what we call dress up clothes) to our show, and he asked me...if I could just take Alex to the show instead.
For, he wanted to stay home with Daddy.
It appears, as his 6th birthday looms ever closer, that going to a play, with your Mom, is simply not cool.
Um, I think my Bug is growing up.
