My son asked if we could go have lunch together at one of the restaurants. I was caught off guard! The kind of lunch that we usually get if it's just the two of us is McD's or In 'N Out or Subway - some sort of fast food that we take home. It had never occurred to me to go to a nice lunch with him though I surely would have gone to lunch before now with a daughter if I had one. My son is almost 11 - not like I need to run around after him in a restaurant!
So off we went to Boudin SF, yes THE place for sourdough bread! We had an excellent lunch and my son loved it. He was very well-behaved and we enjoyed a nice conversation. What a gentleman and an excellent lunch date! We must do it again soon!
It got me to thinking though. We can't forget that it's just as important to have lunch dates with our boys as with our girls. Our sons need to learn nice manners in a restaurant and how to act like gentlemen. They need to know how to act around a lady if they hope to find a good wife and treat her right! I'm so thankful that the Lord gave me this sweet opportunity today!
Who could resist this handsome lunch date?
I should mention that there is a great Christian site for mothers of boys that some of my Twitter friends started. It's called The Mob Society. If you have sons, I suggest checking it out!
Have you had a lunch date with your son?
Have a lovely evening my friends!
