This is a huge event for me.
We stayed out until almost midnight and sat in a jazz bar. I haven't been some place like that in over 5 years.
Our sitter is an old friend our family. Our kids love her and were so busy showing her their toys that they didn't even want to say good bye to me or hug me or anything.
This is just sort of wierd for 2 kids who went through phrases where they would scream if they couldn't see me, had to be carried in a sling, could only fall asleep while nursing and so on.
I let you know if we make it!
All I can say is...............I'm jealous!
My oldest is almost 4 and my youngest is 16 months so we are working on it!
Oh wait..........gotta go now my babe needs me to fall asleep.....LOL

DH is so desperate I think he'd leave her with wolves! LOL!
Do you guys that AP is hard on your marriage? I think it was when the kids were really little.
We were lucky to find a group of sister to babysit who were Ap'ed and extended breastfed and full of strength and patience. Ahhh, the perfect combination and they are cheap cheap cheap. My dd (19 months) doesn't even say good bye anymore and has long since given up the courtusey cry (you know the tear jerking mom please don't go that ends before you get the car door open, maybe it is something just my kids do). SO I guess that is half the battle is finding a good caregiver.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
