Date Night

We don't do it often enough.. we have never used a babysitter.. so when any of our parents are visiting we try to squeeze in a date night or two.. catch a movie, get a massage or dinner for two. It's always initially weird like something is missing.. we don't seem to know what do do with ourselves. No one to feed, to take to the potty, no one to entertain but ourselves. Just us.. him and I.. we can finish a sentence without interference, we can hear each other speak, no one to shush... we had our last one a month or so ago.. what we hardly ever remember to do during all the sneaking out of the house before D spots us is take a picture of just us.. him and I. In fact it's something we forget to do even when we go out as a family.. it is usually him or I taking the picture.. and if we do by some miracle happen to both be in the same photograph.. together there is always a child in the mix.. we need to start taking more.. at least one picture of just him and I during any outing.. here's one we did manage to take during our last date..
