Anthony's sweet mom texted weeks ago and asked if we wanted them to come in and babysit all three kids so we could go out to dinner and on our first post-baby date. As bad as I feel asking people to babysit, I said YES!
We went to dinner and this is longest I have been away from Molly in the entire 7 weeks of her life! The first 45 minutes were pretty nerve-wracking! I kept feeling the need to put her pacifier back in or make sure she was sleeping (clearly she wasn't with us- just a habit!). Finally I let go and we really really enjoyed our night together. I can honestly say that is the longest we have hung out and talked in over 7 weeks. It was wonderful. It's always hard finding time for your spouse, but having a newborn and two toddlers/preschoolers makes it virtually impossible to get more than 30 min here and there.
Dinner was amazing and company was the best!
The best part is that we got home at 930ish (I know, wild and crazy kids!), and all three kids were asleep for the night! Success!
A huge thanks to Anthony's parents for making the long drive to help us out. It was sooo needed!
