So many thoughts.
So many things we did this weekend.
The Overdue Recap gets you through Saturday. I was soooo exhausted. Whew.
Sunday was different.
The husband and I did something incredibly enjoyable.
And for the very first time.
You know you're a mom when going to the movies with your husband while your child is at a drop-in childcare place is a monumental event.
I mean it.
The child turned six but a week ago.
We had NEVER EVER done that before.
We went to the movies.
DURING THE DAY.
On a SUNDAY afternoon, people.
WITHOUT OUR DAUGHTER.
This is HUGE.
I CAN'T STOP USING CAPS.
We dropped her off. She cried. She cries at nothing like this ever. I think she was over-tired. Exhausted. Read that recap again. See how much this kid did on Saturday? You'd be tired, too. And you'd have a sugar crash like nobody's business.
So we dropped her off and she teared up some, but it was still awesome. She enjoyed herself and after the movie we hit the bookstore for a short bit and went our separate ways and neither of us had to go to the children's section or the train or Lego area or anywhere we didn't want to go. AT ALL!
When we went to pick her up my husband was feeling guilty.
Me? I was thinking ahead and trying to figure out when we can do it again.
It helped that she really didn't want to leave. To the point that she held onto the pole outside of the location for a few minutes, pulling an over-exaggerated 6-yo routine.
She was whiny and cranky at dinner, which we did early and out, and I enjoyed A LOT, even with her crankiness. It's amazing what a few hours of Die Hard #900 can do for you when you're watching sh*t blow up and stuff and not fighting for the popcorn.
So I went to the movies with my husband. Without my kid.
And we had a good time.
