Rose becoming an addition to this family has been the greatest thing that has happened in my life. I would not give it up for anything, and I can not imagine it being any other way.
It is hard to believe how much time and money we wasted before she was here. She is approaching eleven months now and I can count on one hand how many times Natalie and I have had some one watch her so we could go have a dinner with just the two of us,. and she has never stayed the night somewhere else. I mean it. It has been less than five times in eleven months. If we went out to eat she came with us, or we just didn’t go.
So when we do go out with just the two of us we cherish it. It is like we are dating again. Tomorrow night we are going to a local comedy club called The Comedy Catch to see my buddy Viet Huynh preform. We are both looking forward to a night without Puffs, Cheerios, or a sippie cup (though we will probably talk about her the whole time). These nights are like we are dating all over again. The difference is that Rose is our curfew.
We are leaving her with my Mom for a few hours while we have dinner, some laughs, and maybe an adult bev. Then we will be gathering her up and back home to put her to bed… We are going to have fun like this…
