My wonderful friend, M, has bravely volunteered to watch AJ tonight so that means D and I are going on a date! I'm pretty sure that this is the first time we've actually had a chance to go out to eat and see a movie since before AJ was born. Sure, we have gone to friend's weddings and her grandpa watched her, but that was different, those were weddings. This will just be us. (!)
I'm not even sure what movies are currently playing (and in case you were wondering, yes, we do have a movie theater here in the middle of nowhere). I have no idea where we will go for dinner. It doesn't matter. What matters is that we will be leaving the house for no less than 3 hours without AJ!
Don't get me wrong, I love the girl to death, but we (me especially) have not had a night out without her to reconnect in a really long time. I'm so excited to not have to rush through dinner so we can make sure AJ won't have a meltdown. I really hope there is something good playing at the theater so I can make the most out of my rare movie-going experience. I really cannot express how thrilled I am that we (I) will have a break from Miss AJ and spend some QT together!
Hooray for date night and hooray for awesome friends who are willing to give up their Friday night to watch our baby!
