date night

you know its date night when:
you’re wearing cute shoes (with a heel) and carrying a purse (that doesn’t have any diapers, wipes, sippy cups, or smashed cheerios in it). (don’t comment on my need for a pedicure unless you’re willing to give me one!)

you know you’re a parent when:
even though your kids are happy at home, you keep thinking how much they would love to be watching the chef make the “volcano”

you know you’ve had too much to eat when:
you keep commenting how nice maternity wear really is, because of the expanding waistline, and wish you were still wearing something with an elastic waist!

you know date night is over when:
the babysitter calls and you can’t understand a thing she’s saying because the baby is crying so hard in her arms.

you know you’ve made the right career choice when:
you find true joy in holding your sleeping boy, while your friends are still out having fun.

happy birthday chad! thanks for the fun night! you are an incredible partner and friend to my husband, and i’m so glad we’re all on this crazy ride together!

    seriously lindsey, take care of them toes!
    i was telling m.j. the other day how i wished i were prego so i could get away with my 3 month prego looking belly.
    the food looked awesome.
    the cuddling baby is a distant memory for me, hold on, enjoy every minuet.

    So glad you guys got an night out…hope you enjoyed the precious few minutes you had together! They’re few and far between, but so worth the work and effort it takes to get out the door-even for a short time. Here’s to many more!!!!!

    date night – so fun. glad you were able to enjoy some time out with friends even if it did have to end early but then you got some snuggle time with your little man.
