This past weekend Bee and I attended the wedding of a high school friend of mine. We left the children at Bee's sister's house (thanks so much!) and actually brushed our teeth. These days it's a very, very rare occasion that we get dressed up and even more rare that we get dressed up together. Shoe shining, mascara, eye make-up, a tie, and a pair of black strappy heels. I finally got to wear a dress that I bought before Tot was born but wasn't able to wear since then because at every opportunity I had to wear it in the past seven years, I had just delivered a baby and couldn't squeeze into it. I was delighted to finally wear it.
Did I mention it was nice to get some time away from the kids! We got to chat with friends, have adult conversation, eat a meal without being interrupted, and dance! Dance!!!
It's nice to remember that we are more than just Mommy and Daddy. We are a married couple of ten years who still really enjoy each other's company.
