Eric and I are going out to dinner and a movie. I will be feeding no one but myself. I will cut no ones food. I will take no one to the potty. I will explain no movies to children. I will enjoy my husband and dinner and conversation that is uninterrupted by children shouting "PAPA! PAPA!" It is my Christmas present and right now there is nothing I can think of I would rather have. When Eric is home it is all but impossible to have a conversation with each other at all, forget about talking something important. As a mom, your dinner is rarely hot and rarely served first. I don't have a lot of adult interactions outside of school appointments, doctor appointments, and therapy appointments. A night out with my husband without children is JUST what I wanted for Christmas. in fact he asked me what I wanted and I told him about a movie I wanted to see. I havent been to the theater in more than ten years. and we rarely get to go out to dinner together. so getting both in one night is a VERY nice gift. I am really looking forward to it. Since I spend all my time with kids, dogs, and chickens I am sure they will be topics of conversation. but at least we can see each other and hear each other and speak without interruption!
