Date Night

My husband and I went on a date last night. We got a sitter, got the Monkeys in their jammies, packed up Abby with us, and took off. Oh, how good it felt. It doesn’t matter what we did, or where we went- we just drove around for a long time, enjoying the quiet. We don’t get much quiet these days. Conversation was organic, and sprung up as inspired, rather than smushed in between kid-tastrophes. How nice it was to be away for a few hours.

Abby slept most of the evening, delightful little doll she is. We got a bite to eat, did a little shopping in peace and quiet, and when we got home, the Monkeys were in bed, sound asleep. The perfect Saturday night.

  1. Hee hee. I’ll bet large amounts of money that with your first you wouldn’t have thought carrying a baby around with you would be peaceful and restful. Isn’t it funny how our perspectives change?

    Glad you had a good night. We had a great weekend as well. Date night friday – I’m a big fan.

  2. Wiz- You are SO TOTALLY right, and we were laughing about that on our date- How once we thought one kid was a lot of work! Now, getting out with just the baby is our idea of peace and tranquility. Man, do things change!
