I will start by saying that I'm one of those mothers who NEVER leave their children. I would rather spend a night snuggled on the couch with my husband and kids than finding a babysitter and going out. Unfortunately, it's gotten to the point where it's been almost 2 years since Steve and I have been out alone :(. So Saturday night was the night. We went to dinner with three of my best friends from high school and then out for drinks. We left at 7pm and lasted until 1:30!! It was so much fun. Steve and I really re-connected and had adult conversations.......rather than "Honey, throw me a diaper or Did Lily poop today?". We danced and kissed without a 1 year old poking me in the face. It was a much needed night and I definitely need to schedule more date nights in the future. The kids were even good for the babysitter. I had a vision of Lily tying up the babysitter and then ripping the house to shreds. She played like a good girl and was in bed by 9pm. I was so tired on Sunday but it was definitely worth it. Hopefully we will plan this again soon rather than waiting 2 more years :).
