Date Night | Mommy and Me Monday | 132nd ed.

August 26, 2012 in mommy and me

It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

It would probably be bad for me to admit, but we haven’t had a date night since before E was born. Terrible right? She just turned 6 months old and I don’t remember one night out. Or even afternoon. 

So, we finally had the chance, and even though E went with us, it was still pretty nice…we just had a baby on our laps. We’re thinking this might be a trend, too.

The bigs are signed up for AWANAs at church and go from 5:30-7:30pm on Sunday nights. The best part? We don’t have to stay there. We get to drop them off and have two hours to do what we want. (Yes, we love our kids, but not being near family, it’s hard to swing a sitter, and harder still because somebody is flat our refusing to take a bottle!)

We took the girls, saw them to their rooms, dropped them off and headed right across the street to a Mexican restaurant. A grande beer for Mr. Serious, a margarita for me and some chips and salsa and all is right with the world.

Just the three of us

Next week, there is no AWANAs….anybody want to watch our girls for two hours? This is a pretty sweet gig!

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies.  If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link.  It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)

This DINK has no idea what AWANAs is, but seems really cool. Glad y’all had a date night! We did Mexican for ours this week, too! Always delicious!

AWANAs=Able Workmen Are Not Ashamed (2 Timothy 2:15) Helps the kiddos get to know God and their faith. (Thank goodness we are Methodist so it’s okay to have a drink!)

I bet all the folks at the restaurant were smiling at that sweet young couple with their first baby. If they only knew!


Krystyn September 2, 2012 at 10:38 pm

I was thinking the same thing.

move back to Texas and you will have all kinds of date time. (Bet you knew that one was coming.) I don’t know what AWANAs is either. Joe says it’s the kids saying iwana this and Iwana that.


Krystyn September 2, 2012 at 10:40 pm

Yep, knew that was coming. And, it’s a church thing…no wanting anything:)

We really need to find a babysitter too. I just don’t know if I’ll be able to trust anyone enough to enjoy myself while we’re out lol!

It was great…we’ll see when we get the next one!

6 months is a long time to go without a date night! Remember to take care of yourself too :D


Krystyn September 2, 2012 at 11:04 pm

I know..I know. We do stuff at home (to be cheap), but going out is a little harder! We’re getting better at it.
