Yesterday I asked for control for just a couple hours.
But it's not for what you think :) It's Fireman's birthday!! I needed to surprise him and so I asked if I could have control for just one or two hours last night. He kept pressing.. why? I can't tell you... but whyyyy? LOL.
He didn't want to give it up. He wasn't sure exactly what was going to happen. I just wanted to surprise him and take him to his favorite restaurant. One that he generally won't go to, because it's slightly pricey and somewhat far away. I organized it all and didn't want him to get in his own way of enjoying it.
I sweetened the deal a little.
I sent this text *I just need to be in charge from... Okay, maybe just 5-6. I'll make it up to you. As soon as the kids are in bed, you can do whatever you want :) come onnnnnn. That's a pretty good incentive.*
*Lol. Alright. *
So he let me know when he was on his way. I wasn't at home, #1 & #2 had a class, so I said don't come here, just go home and get dressed. Dressed how? Just jeans and a cute shirt.
I let him know when we were on our way, but he insisted on driving. I held out as long as I could, then let him figure it out. He smiled and we all had a great dinner. We didn't get to sit next to each other, but we did steal some glances at each other.
Turns out, he kinda blew the whole "do anything you want" thing. He didn't realize just exactly what I meant.. so when I told him he blew it, (in a joking way) he informed me that I was in trouble anyway... for breaking a rule we agreed on during the day. It's a minimal rule, but I still broke it.. and then he remembered that I forgot to lock my car the evening before also, oops.
I didn't say no, but I did say that if he wanted to postpone everything until tonight, that was fine with me. I will still so full from dinner and I knew he was too. He just grinned and agreed. :) Yay for progress!
I'm curious to see how tonight will go. How he will incorporate two rule breaks and what else he may want. It is his birthday after all :)
Hopefully I'll have a good update for tomorrow!
