On Tuesday, I found out that the baseball game was not going to be during the regular time. So Mya and I decided to take the girls to Chuck E. Cheese. I haven't been there in approximately 25 years so I wasn't sure what to expect. I could tell that LittleMya was a bit unsure about what I was doing going with them. But her good friend LittlePlatinum was there, so I didn't think it made a big difference. The girls had lots of fun watching the robots sing and dance and they loved the games. I tried to teach LittleMya how to play skeeball but she smacked her hand while trying to throw the ball (and cut her finger). She gave me this look like "You did this to me! Stay away from my mommie!" It was a bit disconcerting, even coming from a 3 year old.
As we were leaving, Platinum called and was upset because LittlePlatinum's dad had come to pick her up and we weren't there (I didn't know we were even supposed to be back at a certain time). So that made things very awkward. He looked pretty mad and although it wasn't my fault, I felt pretty certain he was assigning a high percentage of the blame to me. After we dropped LittlePlatinum off, Mya, LittleMya and I drove over to my house for just a bit so that Mya could see it. She seemed very impressed. I definitely wondered what was going through her mind though. Was she imaging it being her house?
I dropped Mya off at her car. After putting LittleMya in the backseat, Mya and I had a nice kiss (with LittleMya banging on the window impatiently...). Even though I felt really good about the date, I also felt exhausted. I spent most of the night worried that LittleMya didn't like me and was never going to like me (unlike LittleMya, LittlePlatinum basically attached herself to me from day one and always wants to hold my hand - probably because she thinks she will get ice cream out of me). LittleMya has definitely been more standoffish. She loves to give me five as long as I say "Ouch" really loud after she does it. But other than that, she seems mostly content to ignore me. And I definitely worry about trying too hard to win over LittleMya.
On Wednesday, I went over to Mya's house to watch a movie. I think LittleMya could sense that I was over because she woke up several times (which Mya says she never does) and Mya had to keep getting up. It wasn't a big deal but it definitely made me wonder if I was the evil guy dating the mother that the daughter was trying to scare off (see The Parent Trap).
On Saturday, it was Platinum's birthday. Smash and Mya invited me to go dancing with them. We were having fun dancing when Platinum got very dramatic (probably because she was drunk) and needed to leave. So Mya and I took her home and then went back to my house. We ended up hanging out at my house talking until 4 in the morning. We just had so much to talk about. It was a great night. Even after Mya left, I found myself wishing she was still there.
