Mommy dates

The middle child relishes her position. We affectionately refer to her as the "glue" that holds the family together. She is the resilient one, the "go with the flow" creative who will drop everything at a moment's notice to accompany her mama in the mundane: grocery shopping and excursions to Tar-jay, even short trips just to fill up the car with gas.
Of course, she knows the perks...
Mommy dates always include food...including dessert!

Today it was an orthodontist appointment, resulting in bright orange bands on those braced front teeth. We marked the occasion with chips and salsa, because there is nothing a little Tex-mex can't make festive!

And nachos. 8 perfect chips loaded, shared with my girl. Her smile as she smacked her avocado-smeared lips was priceless. Her slender body sliding between me and the table as we waited for our check spoke volumes about the heart of this little one whose love tank was full. Time with mama always does that, and I am thankful for sweet times like this, impromptu mommy-dates where they are singled out...the most important person in the world for that moment.
