It was a strange date to say the least, especially so early in their relationship. Where most men would take the woman they are trying to woo to a fancy dinner, a Broadway show or even a concert; Atul had other ideas. He wanted the date to merge together his two favorite people – the woman he already thought he was going to marry and his favorite nephew. One Saturday afternoon Atul came to Sonias home in tow with Aarav, his two year old nephew and a ball of energy – Atul simply wanted to ensure Sonia loved spending time with kids as much as he did (Sonia may even say Atul is just one big kid).
To say the least Sonia was an amazing teacher – and children meant the world to her; but he wanted to see it in action. Sonia ran around with Aarav – chasing bubbles, laughing uncontrollably and playing catch. Aarav and Sonia told stories to each other, ate ice cream and even watched TV. The meeting which was only supposed to last an hour or two took up the entire evening wearing out both Aarav and Atul. Sonia won Aarav’s heart that day and in the process Atuls as well.
