Date night

Meg

Sometimes I just want to get away. To dress up and go out on the town with my handsome husband.

But that’s not always possible.

Babysitters cancel, kiddos are sick, or the weather is inclement.

My birthday weekend was one of those times when the babysitter fell through.

And I wasn't happy about it.

In fact, I was in quite a "woe is me" state of mind.

Everything was wrong in our life, and little was right.

I was annoyed that I was stuck at home, instead of at a movie theater with my hubby.

I was wishing years would just past by and my daughter would be old enough to leave alone for an evening.

But that’s still many years down the road.

Do I truly want these years to pass by so fast?

Those days of freedom will come, but for now I want to immerse myself into a world of pureed foods, new teeth, first steps and baby jabber. I want to imprint pictures in my mind of messy faces, first outings, sleepless nights. Because, before I want to believe it, firsts will become lasts. She will eat people food, no longer crawl, and have a full set of teeth. She’ll talk fluently, reject nap times and step onto a yellow school bus, ending our days together at home.

There will come a time when my husband and I have all the time in the world for date nights. At that point in time, I don’t want to look back and wish for things to be different.

And so, for now, I relish our “date-nights,” when we put the little one to bed, put in a movie, and cuddle up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn. No, it’s no movie-theater, but it has a special appeal just the same. It’s us, enjoying life with a little one, and making the most of each moment we have.

How will you make the most of today?
