No. 8

So last night was the first night WE went out since leaving for Moscow February 9, 2007. My Mom and Larry stayed with Cupcake which is GREAT because NO ONE else is staying with our daughter for a very long time EXCEPT for them. We went to a cocktail party at Lizzy & Cousin Ruby's. We had a blast. It was tough to swallow that I wasn't bathing and putting my daughter to sleep. The first time I didn't hug & kiss her before she went to sleep. I KNOW she doesn't mind but I did feel like I was missing out.


This morning the 3 of us had breakfast and enjoyed the beautiful weather on the deck. We came in to give Cupcake lunch. After lunch she was just walking around the house. For the first time EVER she made an effort to play with Buttercup who is our female lab (Scooby is the male). Here is a pic of them together.

Congrats on your date!

And remember... it's not only good for you and DH, it's also good for Cupcake. She needs to learn/know you are coming back when you leave... even when you both leave at once! So you're helping your marriage and helping your baby learn life skills too.

Cupcake looks much happier than Buttercup does...

Glad you had a good night out. Does that mean you're feeling better? REALLY hope so!

A night out? What's that? I have not been out without the kids in 4 months for a date with my hubby. I guess we will have to try it one day.
