Nice Change of Pace

For the first time yesterday I left my husband alone with our daughter (She's 3) for a night so I could go spend the night at a friends house out of town. I love my daughter but I'll admit, it was a much needed break and was nice to get away for a change.

I ended up having (For the most part) a girls night. The first part of the day consisted of helping my friend take care of her 8 month old niece and wandering around the mall. After we dropped the baby off we met a mutual friend for coffee then went back and hung at her house for a bit before heading out to see a movie.

All in all, it was a nice change of pace for me. And something I hope to be able to do again sometime.

I am very happy to read that you finally had a chance to spend some free time away from your demanding three year old. You will have a lot more free time as she gets older.

Those times are few and far between.

You're right but between my husband and my daughter I haven't had a girls night in 7 years other than Saturday. I was long over due.

I mostly did it because everyone has been telling me I need to back off a bit and I was overdue for a night out.
