So That's What Grown-Ups Do..

Tonight we went on a "double date" with our friends from Nibley. Whenever we get together, we usually meet up with all our kids at one of our houses.. cook dinner and dessert together-- and have great but often interrupted conversation.. interspersed with a diaper or two, and always one minor, but emotional, child injury.
So tonight we decided to go out all by ourselves.
I put on my 'fancy' pants, and actually "did" my hair.
We chose a restaurant that WE grown-ups felt like.. and got seated immediately on a Friday night , cause there were only 4 of us-- (instead of the 12 we would of been with the kids.)
I didn't have to tell one person to NOT crawl under the table, cause it's bad manners, and really gross.
We talked, and laughed about stuff 8 year olds wouldn't get.
We didn't have to take anyone to the bathroom, or wipe up any spilled drinks.
I only had to cut my own food.
It was lovely.

It's amazing how much stuff you can talk about when you don't have to stop mid-sentence to stop kids from being kids!! Love date nights!

Oh, I miss doing adult things. Sometimes I wait to eat dinner until the kids are in bed so I can just enjoy food period. Love it.

Thank you for reminding me to email my in-laws with a new babysitting rotaion--seriously. Our old one ended and I REALLY need a date ALONE with my hubby!

That's awesome, sort of surprising that we even know how to act without our kids there to do the entertaining.
