First date - it's a first!

This evening I attended a first date and for the first time ever it was a date with the kids too.
Have a child who is difficult, disabled and have mental problems can have a huge impact on any relationship and really can play a massive role and make a relationship make or break.

I meet with a gentleman after school with his disabled son and off course took leo with me, something which I was worried about, and really need not have been.

First we meet in the park as leo wanted to go on the swings as he was a little agressive when I picked him up after having a long day on on a school trip,  leo soon calmed after a few goes on the swing and the slide!

We then meet my "friend" and his son which was not akward and we headed into the coffee shop. My new friend was very positive to leo asking him questions about his day which was very refreshing.
We sat chat and ate cake while leo played on my phone! Thank good for game apps. I spoke to his son and we enjoyed each others company!

As the time went on leo wanted pizza, so we all decided to head to the local pizza hut where we enjoyed some yummy pizza , laughter and chatting.

Ideally I'd never dream of having a date with my kid there, and I doubt many people would, but it really got me thinking maybe this is where I have been going wrong. Because there is no point starting any relationship until and if they get on with your child as your child is your life and comes first!

While I understand if your a hussy and date millions of men this would not be good for your child but if like me your a small time dater who hardly dates and everything is kept normal and in a public place why not meet with the kids!

Have to say this is the best date I have been on in a very very long time and I am very positive from the meet!!

Would you meet someone with your kids??
