I was so nervous for nothing, this little girl is so precious. She is really sweet. I can see a smartie pants side to her; but she most definitely gets that from her dad. First he took us to Whataburger for breakfast, which I know realize they have nothing there that I can really eat. Everything has beef or pork in it. So I just had an egg and cheese sandwich, hash browns and a coffee. We all had a chance to sit down and talk and get to know each other. She is very shy, but all kids are when they meet strangers for the first time.
I had planned for us to go to this place called Quiggly’s to do some mosaic art. Joe told me she loves arts and crafts stuff and I thought about all the arts and crafts things I do with my girls in class. I figured she would love that. So we all went and picked out an object to do mosaic on. I picked a cross, because I am making a cross wall in my living room. Isaac picked out a martini glass, which I am still trying to figure out why lol…and they did matching cupcakes. When you meet Joe then you will understand why this is so funny to me. He is a big guy, at least 6’2″ ish and big build. So he is sitting at the table next to his daughter decorating a cupcake and just talking as sweet to her…I was laughing inside to myself. Isaac really took to her, and he loved the craft as well. He complained the entire time going there, but then settled in to really enjoy it. But she loved it. She was cutting the glass and decorating her cupcake. She put a ‘B’ on it for her name. I really felt happy that they were able to do this together. And me and Isaac had a great time together laughing and joking too. It was really nice.
Afterwards, we went thrift store shopping. Isaac got a new hoodie and she got a new shirt and a cute little pair of sandals and sunglasses. We went to a new thrift store over here by the house and it was neat, because they had used and brand new things in there. That was different for me.
I am really glad it happened the way it did. Sometimes you can not predict how your life will turn out. But sometimes when you get the unexpected surprises, they are the best ones. I had told myself I would never date a guy with an ex-wife or with children…Now look at me. I am doing both and falling in love with him at the same time. He had me hooked when he told me last night that he thought I was an incredible woman. Once I thought about that for a moment, no one has ever said anything that nice t me. And meant it.
