Wow, how has it been since we've had a date night? At least 6 months. Anyway, darling Christy asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday a few months ago and I said "all I want is babysitting". I think I probably slurred it through a haze of exhaustion. She remembered and thoughtfully arranged to have a bunch of girls come over to watch my herd of children. Fortunately for them, we finally got the babies sleeping in the evenings, so they wouldn't have to deal with the insanity that we had been experiencing for 4 months. Christy even made Gwen's favority dish - baked pasta - for everybody.
We tried a new Chinese place and it was pretty good. Then we went to the movies and saw "The Spirit". It was terrible. Like, comically terrible. One of the worst movies that I have seen. 10 people walked out in the first 30 minutes. On our way home we were discussing the movie and all its badness when ... there were flashing lights behind us and... things got even funnier.
Oddly enough, it was a great date and we so needed to spend some time alone discussing Chinese food, bad movies and anything not relating to infants and toddlers.
Thanks to Christy, Lauren, Monica and Jennifer for babysitting and making this night possible!
