The sun shone all weekend long. I even got a little base burn! I know, I know. Burning is bad, but if I get a wee base burn, it will fade, and I'll turn into the bronzed goddess that I am in no time flat!
We had a little girls night on Saturday night, and instead of bringing Growly Bear with me, she stayed at home with her daddy! I hadn't realized I needed a little "me" time, but thankfully my husband did, and he insisted that I go. When my friends started talked about "Girls Night", I'm not going to lie... I started thinking of all the reasons I shouldn't go.
-Growly Brear was teething, what if she was fussy and needed me?
-My mom and dad are out of town, and not 30 seconds away if my hubby needed something!
-I'm always the one that does bed-time with her, and I wasn't sure if she would settle down for him.
-There is all kinds of prep I could/should be doing form the upcoming 1st Birthday Extravaganza.
-Or, what if zombies invaded and I couldn't get back to them in time and they ate my brain, and I turned into one of them!
Lucky, my hubby wouldn't hear of it, and told me I was going out with my girls, and that's all there was to it.
He was right. I needed it! And guess what! Dinner went well for them! So did bath time. Her teeth got brushed. She got all the loves and cuddles she could need before it was sleepy time, and probably a story. She drank her bottle without a fuss, and went to sleep peacefully! All that wasted worry for nothing! And then the little monkey woke up about an hour before I got home, and decided to sing and tell stories to her daddy until I got home. So, I still got bedtime loves and hugs and cuddles.
So, what does this mommy do when she gets a night out you might be asking? Daiquiris, Rock Band, and Jersey Shore re-runs! Plus a little gossip, tons of giggles, and some delici-oso food. Perfect way to unwind and have some fun.
Sunday was a great day, until the Canucks lost.... That sucked. At least Growly Bear got a chance to wear her adorable outfit before the got knocked out of the series!
He even roasted my hot dog for me! I think I'll keep him.
