Holy nut balls...

FINALLY
it is finally going to happen! The reservations have been made, the baby sitter has been hired {reputable agency major background checks totally made sure} and mama and daddy are ready for a little break. I swear it took almost 4 months since the last time I wrote about this but this Friday hubby and I are going out on a semi date we will not be alone but with 2 other awesome couples which means adult conversation and drinks! I am looking forward to eating at a restaurant that does not offer kiddie options and place mats with coloring crayons. Hubby and I are foodie extremes and not being able to really experiment in the last couple of years as really bugged the crap out of us. I mean we live in a city were the food and restaurants are to die for

We will be without my Little Drama G not gonna lie it is going to be really hard,  this is the first time we have left her for a period longer than 2 hours.  I know...I know suck it up and pull your big panties up!  I am being a big ass wimp but my baby has been with me since the day she was born and no matter how big a pain in the ass she is sometimes is I am still going to worry and miss her when she is not with me.  I wonder how many times I will be blowing up the sitters phone that night? Mmmmm hope she is ready.
Is it normal to feel this guilty? Augh! God it sucks! So the countdown has begun 3 days 11 hours and a few hundred minutes.....I cannot wait....

It's tough but you'll have so much fun and be so hapy to see her when you get back!!! We are lucky bc both sets of grandparents live within 30 minutes are are always happy to baby sit! Trustworthy sitters at our finger-tips!

It's going to be great! You'll feel like yourself again. Just a quick tip-ask your babysitter if she texts. It's an easier way to communicate throughout the night without seeming like a neurotic mom.

I've got 3 and its still crazy hard for me to leave them. I don't expect it will ever get any easier... but time off is well-deserved! Enjoy your date! :)

How long are you guys going to be gone for? Is it an overnight? I think it sounds so exciting! We are total foodies too and for now, I just try to cook exotic foods since Cash won't eat real food yet.

You haven't left her for longer than two hours? This is overdue!

Enjoy yourself and I like the idea of texting the sitter! We don't live near family, but have many friends who watch Cash for us. We try to do date night once a week, usually for 3 hours or so. Have a great time, Mama!

Guurl... I love my kids (don't get me wrong), but I live for my kid free date nights and have noooo problem leaving them for a few hours. Shit... I'll even do a weekend (as long as I'm comfortable with who they're staying with... which is always family). Now that we live 2 hours away from EVERYONE though we don't get to have very many nights or weekends off anymore :(

Seriously, go have fun! Your little angle will be fine!! :)

Feeling the love......
