We went on a DATE this afternoon! We felt like a normal, married couple & it felt GREAT to get away, even if it was just for a movie. The opportunity was presented to us by my brother. He happened to have a couple of free tickets, no restrictions & offered to babysit while we went. Of course, he brought along his wonderful girlfriend Jessie (I have a feeling she did most of the work, lol). I didn't even stress about it.
I wrote out the kids' lunch menu & told them where Ian's seizure medication was just in case & we left. No turning back! Apparently things went magnificently. They ate all their lunch & went down for their nap w/o much protest what so ever. Tio (my brother) even bought the kids pizza for dinner so we wouldn't have to mess w/ it when we got back.
The kids didn't even cry when we left. Much better that way. When we got home, they were as happy as could be. This is the first time we have left all 3 w/ anyone besides our parents. I can't wait to go out again!
The movie was fantastic. I'm a big Harry fan, having read all the books. We even got to see the 1st 12 minutes in 3D which was really cool! I would highly recommend the movie. I can't wait for the last 2.
