A First Time for Everything

Well... tomorrow night is going to be "the night". The hubster and I are going out on our first "date" since we had the kiddo a year ago. We've only had someone watch her two other times besides going to the babysitter every day while we go to work. The other two times were when we had to be at school until 7 p.m. for parent/teacher conferences. Since both of us are educators, we work in the same school system, and the sitter closes at 5:30; we had no other option. But, tomorrow is the first time we haven't been forced to leave her with someone. The chick babysitting even offered to keep her all night long if we wanted her to! BUT... Mommy is NOT even close to being ready for that. Like seriously NOT. CLOSE. AT. ALL! That will be when she's 4 or so (or maybe 10) ~ not 1!!

I think it'll be nice to get a little alone time with my boy. We haven't been out together for a really really long time. I'm kinda looking forward to it. Another perk... the meal is going to be free thanks to Uncle Bill's Lonestar Steakhouse gift cards for Christmas! Date night and a free meal! That rocks :)
