Tonight we are going to a wedding. The bride and several of the guests are friends I haven’t seen in a long time.
We are hiring a “real” babysitter for I think the first time ever. She’s Charlotte’s beloved drama teacher, so we are all very excited. I bought a few craft projects for them to do, and told Charlotte she can stay up later tonight. I’ve written down a few notes, and I’m wondering if it’s enough. But I’m way past the “managing every detail of every minute of the kids’ day” stage, and I think they will survive.
I’m wearing a black dress and heels for the first time in what feels like years (and I’m probably right).
I don’t have the right undergarments, I’m not sure my outfit is even still in style, and I’m afraid I’m going to fall and break my ankle.
But hey, we are getting out of the house and doing something that has nothing to do with being parents.
Clearly, we do NOT get out enough.
