Linking up again with Shaunacey from Confessions of a Frumpy Mom for:
Like most parents, and, well, most people, there are inevitably weeks and months where you find yourself not at the top of your priority list and sometimes the only thing lower than you on this priority list is your relationship. But Wednesday night we received a phone call from Scott’s parents telling us they were coming over to babysit for a couple hours on Saturday night. While it wasn’t long enough to go see Star Wars (which was our initial instinct), it was long enough to go for supper. And you know what the benefit of going for supper, as opposed to going to a movie is?
The chance to talk.
There has been a lot of stuff going on in our lives that we’ve been trying to get covered in the all too short evenings after C goes to bed. But those conversations get sidelined by crying babies, hockey games and errands. It was nice to have the only interruption be the server asking if we wanted a refill on our drinks.
It wasn’t the most romantic date we’ve been on, but it was the most productive.
