Marc pulled the car out of the garage as I said good-bye to the kids. At first, neither Isabelle nor Ari came running. But just as I said good-bye to the adult in the room, both kids came running.
“But I don’t want you to go out…” Isabelle whined.
“You always say that before Daddy and I go out on a date. You’ll be fine,” I said kissing her on top of her head.
“You goin’ on a date!” Ari declared.
“That’s right,” I replied.
“Daddy’s goin’ on a date too!” he said.
“Is he going with me?” I asked.
Ari smiled. I gave him a kiss on the head too. However, he tried to follow me out of the door as I walked into the garage. Fortunately, he was redirected with, “Let’s go watch Mommy and Daddy from the window.”
With that, I slithered out the door and into Marc’s car for a much-needed dinner with my husband.
The Circular made their chocolate fondue gluten-free by giving us extra cheesecake and fruit. Delicious!
