Now that we have a sitter that I love, we are dating again ( me and Lynch, not me and the sitter.) We have been on two dates in the last two weeks! Two dates in 6 months, not bad. DATING IS AWESOME.
I put Jack to bed before we go out. He never sleeps very long in the early part of the evenings, so we know that we have to keep the night short. We have to be home by 9:30 or 10. I don’t think that my curfew has been this early since…ever ( even poor Cinderella got to stay out to midnight.) We have been having so much fun. I don’t think Lynch and I have ever had so much to say to each other, or been more excited to eat a meal.
Both nights Jack woke up just before we arrived home ( he almost always wakes up at 9:30 and wants to nurse.) Our sitter has not been able to get him back to sleep, but he will calmly snuggle with her in the rocking chair. And he will go to sleep for me as soon as we get home. So all in all we consider this a huge smashing success!
There have been a few times that we have taken Jack to dinner with friends in the evening, or to an event. I am hesitant to do it too often, because of his sleep issues I like to stick to a bed time routine. But Jack loves being around people, and people love being around him. A few weeks ago we went to a launch party for our dear friend Michaels new company. It’s a totally a rad event furniture rental company, called YEAH! rentals. We all had a blast.
