Stroller Diaries: Workin’ and datin’ and stuff July 8, 2010Posted by erinfrances in Being a mama.
1. Remember that one time I had to go back to work? I don’t. It’s such a horrible memory that I’ve suppressed it. This post — My triumphant return to the working world — brings it all crashing down on me.
2. The last time Dave and I had a date — before Violet — my mom had Alice for a week. In July 2009. The time before that? I’d have to check my busy datebook: Oh, look, June 2, 2008. The day before Alice was born. Now, with the birth of my second child, I’ve gone on two dates in two weeks. I feel borderline spoiled. And a little sick of Dave. Just kidding. Anyhow, Mama needs a night out details the jazz of going out the weekend after I returned to work. Ah, bliss.
I kind of forgot why I like Dave. Isn’t that sad? I know why I LOVE him, but that date night helped me see him beyond someone who carries heavy, wet loads of dirty towels from the bathroom to the washer in the basement. Ah, marriage.
