I know that there are MANY who are in the same situation with no help, and even single moms (don't know how they do it). So I'm not really complaining, I'm just sayin'..........
But this last week I got a little break and some "me" time, and Brent and I got a little "us" time. Last Saturday night we went out for our anniversary. We just went to a really nice restaurant in Nashville and took our time and enjoyed eating without having to get up to get something for someone twelve times in ten minutes or breaking up a fight or holding a child who is eating off our plate while we tried to eat. It was really nice.
The babysitter took a quick pic before we left.
Also this week Mother's Day Out/ Pre-School at our church started! YIPEEE!!! They go twice a week for a few hours. Tuesday I had several errands to run. It is just SOO much easier not having to load and unload kids each time you stop, not to mention taking them in with you. I went to Target for a few things and just strolled around and took my time. I didn't do anything exciting, but it was nice. It is sure easy to take it for granted when you have grandparents or family always willing to babysit for date night or even for a trip to the store.
I tried to take a few pictures of the boys before their first day at MDO and did NOT have much luck. I was going to take one of them together, then separately and one with Rhett with his back pack. These were the two pictures I got. I could see how the photo shoot was going to go pretty quickly, so I just stopped. Maybe another day.
