Date Night

No, I didn't take any of my kids out for a date night.  However, I'm a big believer that in order to enjoy your kids you have to enjoy some time away from them as well.  Last night Mister got invited to go see Monster Trucks with my father-in-law.  Dear was invited to a birthday party from 5:30 to 7:30, and Slim was invited to a party from after school to whenever.  That meant that if we picked Slim up after Dear, we had 120 glorious minutes to ourselves.  Take away commuting time, and that translated to about 80 minutes gorging ourselves on Thai food with a couple of friends.  It's refreshing to spend some time with adults.

Then, when it was time to pick the girls up, we were relaxed and cheerful and ready to listen to them jabber on, simultaneously, about their parties the whole way home.

I was way too busy carting kids around and eating delicious Thai food to take any pictures, but check out this cute weirdo.  I found him napping like this, but he opened his eyes when he heard me.

**This is Day 5 of 31 Days of Enjoying My Kid.
