Bells to be rung/and a wonderful fling to be flung

It was amazing last night. I love my man. I also loved being without the children.
I know that sounds like well- mean and wretched and I don't care. The rearing of children and the attention to ones own life is so freaking exhausting.
I also realized that last night at the video shop that I am in constant hurry. I don't know how to go from point A to point B slowly and directly without much stress involved. I am always bustling wee ones and running late and backtracking it seems.

Last night we went to the dance class and laughed and laughed and then after being reminded that I could take my time (such novelty) we spent 35 minutes in the video isles laughing, choosing, and yes even a bit of practicing our steps.

I can absolutely relate to this! As soon as our sitter arrives today, my husband and I are taking a few hours to just Slooooow down. Our 16 month old is teething, whining. screaming, fighting sleep, etc., and it's taken its toll.

Sounds like you had a fabulous evening!

I'm always surprised how easily I "forget" that I have a child and how quickly I'm able to slow down and be completely selfish with MY time.

You have to keep in ALL a priority, juggling life like magic... It just ain't easy being everything to everyone!!! I would say I am just joking, but it is true. I am glad you remember your man. Sometimes when I am tired enough to drop, I stay up and lay on the couch with mine to watch a movie together. Even if I fall asleep a half hour in, it sure seems to mean alot to him that STILL- I spent time alone with him. Sometimes moments stolen, however few can be the most precious!!! I think you are wonderful!

What a perfect song to accompany the dance! :-) I'm so glad you had a fun time. Well deserved, definitely. And there is nothing mean or wrong about wanting/needing/appreciating time away from your kids!

I don't think it is wretched or mean to want some time to be in adult company. I love how you two spent your evening. You are so cool. I think you are a better mama for it.

Time with your beau to dance and laugh and relax and be happy = better, happier momma during time with the babes. Period.
