Danielle Meets the Boys (Photostory)
After the hair salon, Danielle spent a little time at Ni'Chalet's. Then she got a call from Rod, wondering if she would meet him and the boys for a bite to eat. Of course she said yes. Even though she enjoys her alone time, she always misses her boys when she's not with them.
Rod let the boys pick the restaurant, which is how we got to McDonald's.
Rod and Julian's eyes are glued to the door, checking for Danielle.
"I wish mommy would come. I'm hungry." (Julian)
"She'll be here soon." (Rod)
Unbeknownst to Rod, Jacob is on the move.
"What can I get for you?" (Mari)
"Hi. Can I get a hamburger Happy Meal, a regular hamburger, small fry, and a medium Coke." (Sheila)
"Sure. If you like, you can have a seat and I will bring your meal when it's ready." (Mari)
"That's so sweet of you. Thanks." (Sheila)
When Mari turns to fix the food, she notices Jacob. She looks in Rod's direction, and says, "Sir, your son is here."
Rod snaps out of his trance.
"Jacob, come here." (Rod)
*I know some of you mothers are wondering why he doesn't just get up and get Jacob. Well he's been chasing Jacob all day. I guess he's tired.*
Mari goes back to preparing the order, while Jacob watches.
Sheila and the kids take the last available table.
"Look, there's mommy!" (Julian)
"Oh shit" (Rod thinks to himself)
Danielle hears Julian and gets ready to head to the back booth.
She spots Jacob, and wonders why he's roaming alone for some stranger to come along and snatch him up.
Mari waits with Sheila's order while Danielle addresses Jacob.
"Hello honey. Where are you going? Turn around we're going back to the table." (Danielle)
"Here you go." (Mari)
"Thanks so much. I appreciate you bringing it over." (Sheila)
"Hey honey. I was just getting up to get him." (Rod)
:There's a lot that Danielle wants to say to Rod, but she doesn't believe in berating her husband in public, so it will have to wait. The look on her face says it all. She gives him a quick little hug, and says hello to Shantavia and Bruce, before taking her seat.
"How's your mom doing with all the wedding stuff? Is she getting cold feet yet?" (Bruce)
"She's driving us all crazy, but it's nice to see her so happy. Cold feet? Women aren't the ones who usually get cold feet. We leave that to you men." (Shantavia)
"Hi sweetie. I like your haircut. Did you have fun today?" (Danielle)
Julian smiles at the hair compliment, then starts giving Danielle a blow by blow account of his day. Jacob is having a good old time banging on the table. Julian then decides he wants to go sit with his mommy.
"Your hair looks nice." (Rod)
"Jacob, please stop. You are making too much noise." (Danielle)
"So how was your day?" (Rod)
Danielle then remembers the incident at the hair salon.
"Guess who I ran into at the salon?" (Danielle)
"I'm here!" (Julian)
"And so you are. Give me a kiss." (Danielle)
"Don't do it, Jacob." (Rod)
As Julian gives Danielle a kiss, Jacob slams his hands on the table, again.
"Maybe we should just order some food. I'm sure they're hungry." (Danielle)
