Sushi Date

For the fourth year running, I gave each of my nieces a sushi date for their birthday. (Their birthdays are both in late September, but my sister's family had a lot of travel during October so they are only just getting around to being able to redeem their sushi dates.)

I like giving them this as a gift for a few reasons, but the big one is that I rarely spend time individually with my nieces, usually I see them both together. It's nice to be able to have time to focus on spending time with each girl individually. Still, this year when they opened their cards, I wondered if maybe they'd tired of this as a gift. It was what they expected, so it wasn't all that exciting, at least not at the time.

This evening I took Molly out for her sushi date. She chose to go to Ichiban - where she's chosen to go every year. Ichiban has an all-you-can-eat sushi deal. If you have or know a kid who likes sushi, it's an excellent deal. The kids' price is $12.50. Molly ate just as much sushi as me, for less than half the price. Part way through dinner, she said to me: "Taking us to sushi is a really good present! I like sushi and I don't get to go out for it very often. When I'm grown up, I'm going to take Kiera's kids out for something they like to eat as their birthday present." It was one of the nicest ways she could thank me for the gift. I have awesome nieces.

That's a really great gift! I don't think I ate sushi until I was out of college. How old are the girls?

Aww! That's a great deal for kids who like sushi. We should take Bean there for a special occasion sometime, she loves sushi!

Time together, I believe, is the best present you can give anyone. :-)
