Since G goes to a daycare affiliated with a church they are closed on Good Friday. Michael and I however still have to work. My mother who is a saint and a teacher was off and offered to take G that day. Well since I have to be to work at 7 she always offers to take him overnight that way it is less rushed in the morning. I never disagree.
She asked if she could pick him up around 4:30 on Thursday and I never argue with my mother. I then text Michael and asked if he would like to go on a date with me. Once we had the bambino packed up and shipped off to my parent's we got dressed and headed to our favorite Italian restaurant.
I ordered the pizza which is my favorite.
We both put our phones away and just enjoyed each other.
After dinner he was all "Hey want to run to Home Depot and price out some stuff for our yard projects?" Normally this is a Noooooooo because either G is on the verge of a meltdown or we have to relieve the babysitter. But last night? Oh yeah we had nothing holding us back. So it was "Hell yeah baby let's go"
We walked through the isle's and garden center and got a ton of things figured out and made the best decision for our budget.
Then on the way home we got ice cream and went home and ate it. While watching a whole show uninterrupted. No nose to wipe, no diaper to change, no child trying to scale me like a rock wall and rip my hair out. And then? We had a night of uninterrupted sleep.
We recharged our batteries. Don't get me wrong I missed my kid like no tomorrow. And we talked about him a lot. But? We held hands, we talked about non baby stuff, and we didn't have to rush.
Simple perfect date night.
What is your idea of a perfect date night?
