Date Night

Date night has evolved for Andy and I from a long night out on the town:  dinner, a Broadway show, dancing and drinks when it was just the two of us to a much more low key, low scale, cheaper, and more local type of date.

After Isabella was born we were able to have date nights pretty frequently because it's pretty easy to dump one kid on my mom, but now that there's two and my mom is a bit older and doesn't have the energy she used to and considering the fact that both of my children are pretty high maintenance we were pretty sure we'd never leave the house again just the two of us.

But things are evening out over here, although we do have our variety of high and low days, so we decided to go for it.

I put Arya to sleep so I could nurse right before we left, and bedtime for Isabella is a cinch.  So Andy and I went out for dinner and a movie.  We actually sat down and ate dinner together at a normal pace without demanding little children needing us.  We were planning on going out to a movie but decided to hit a bar instead.  We figured we're entitled to a few drinks and I had plenty of bags of milk in the freezer for Arya's 3 am feeding.

It felt so good to get out and not have to worry about the kids or the house or money and just talk and get a little drunk and a little silly.

Hopefully we'll get the chance to go out again soon.

Sounds like fun! Date nights have saved my marriage (or so I like to say to emphasize their importance). Enjoy it!
