Date night

July 27th, 2009

Steve and I had a great datenight Saturday night. Grandma picked up Ella around 2 p.m. at our house, giving us almost the whole day to relax. Is she awesome or what?

We took our time, perusing Barnes and Nobles for like an hour, we went to a few other shops, we ate some delicious Japanese food, then saw the movie “The Ugly Truth,” which was OK. Not great.

Anyway, it was very nice to have a little break, and what’s great is that Ella no longer cries when we leave. Instead, she’s psyched to go to Grandma’s. So I don’t even really have any guilt about it all.

So I think I’ve realized how very important date night is. I’m relaxed. Steve’s relaxed. We had a break from all Ella all the time, despite the deliciousness that she is.

We need to do it MORE. Once a month would be awesome. I know one mom who has one with her husband every single Tuesday night. I think that’s great. The whole family is still together all weekend, so it doesn’t cut into that time. But that would be pretty costly. Once a month would be good for us.
