An unprecedented event has happened at our house.
Actually, now that I think about it, a couple of unprecedented things have happened at our house. But since the other couple things involve potty training, I'll put those in the TMI file for a rainy day. Or for when the boys bring their first girlfriends over to meet us.
Anyways, back to the unprecedented event. Are you ready?
Scott and I have gone out on two dates in the past two weeks. Yup, you heard me. TWO dates in TWO weeks.
The first week my mom just offered out of the blue to watch the kids, so that was a heavenly surprise. I put on a sweater dress with black tights and bright red lipstick and we went out for sushi. It was divine. The second week we had plans with a couple friends who couldn't find a sitter, so at the last minute we decided to head out solo instead. I put on a little black dress and dangly earrings and pinkish lipstick and we went out for Italian. Not as good as the sushi night, but I think we were just plain getting spoiled by then and didn't know how to fully appreciate it anymore.
It's so nice to go out to dinner with my husband and feel like a woman instead of a mom. A girl needs to wear a little red lipstick and some dangly earrings every now and then, you know what I mean?
In an effort to feel a little less mom-ish, I've also started trying to do this new thing with my hair. Basically I'm just curling it all willy-nilly and going for a blonde tousled look. Like Marilyn. Or Kimber, from Nip/Tuck.
It might be coming out more like Meredith Baxter-Birney, though.
I'm still working on it.
Maybe if we get a third date next week, I'll be ready to really rock it out. Until then...I am wo-mom, hear me roar.
