Date Night

It has been awhile. Heck, I am not even sure the last time Justin and I were alone without the kids. We gotta be pushing 15+ weeks and it was high time to enjoy an adult only dinner. Grammy Janet was needing her baby fix so we took her up on the offer to watch the kiddos and called up the Walshes for a little dinner at Carmen's. Kaden was pretty excited to see Grammy and was just itching to get outside and play in the water and he proudly said bye-bye, gave me a kiss good-bye and then as gently as he could, shoved me out the door with a big GOOOOOO. For the next two hours we didn't talk about the kids, we didn't worry about the kids, we just enjoyed a nice dinner with great friends and were able to catch up with their lives. We didn't have to worry about what to talk about or have to try and carry on the conversation by ourselves, it just flowed from one topic to the next and that is exactly how it should be, effortless. It amazes me how easy it is to get caught up in the day to day hustle of life-bottles, diapers, baths, day care, grocery shopping, laundry….. I love my boys and I love every minute that I spend with them but it was nice to have a couple of hours to wind down, enjoy a night with friends and frankly, flirt with my husband. To be reminded yet again of all the reason I fell in love with him so long ago. Because of him, I have them…
