My in laws were sweet enough to offer to keep the girls New Year’s Eve so that D and I could go out. I was excited about an evening with D. I was looking forward to a nice dinner out and some cuddling on the couch to watching the new year roll in. I decided that I would try to look nice for our evening out. Took the time to do my nails, my hair, put on some make up and even a nice outfit. I felt pretty good about myself. Mae walked in at that point looked at me and with the sweetest smile on her face said, “Mommy e look beautiful just like a snowman.” Great. I look round and white as snow. Thanks, Mae. You know how to make a woman feel good.
We did have a nice evening though. We had a quiet dinner at a local mexican restaurant and then came home and fell asleep. Yes, we fell asleep. But, it was nice to sleep a full 8 hours with no one crying in the middle of the night for a bottle or climbing into bed with us saying “I sleep well” way too early.
Happy New Year Everyone!
