I wonder if Ben always keeps his eyes open . . .
Tonight was our first date night since Owen was born. We left our little guy with some friends of ours. We have an arrangment where we watch each other's children every other Thursday. One week we go out on a date and they babysit and the next week they go out and we babysit. It's great because it's free, but also because it helps us to focus on each other and not neglect our marriages. It is so common for couples to lose each other to their children. We love Owen, but we want to be purposeful about loving each other too.
We went out to eat and then did a little shopping. If you know me, you know I really hate to shop. I hate picking out clothes, but I have no choice. I am wearing my pre-pregnancy clothes, but am having a hard time finding shirts that fit modestly. I can wear my old bottoms, but tops are another story! So after we ate Ben took me to the mall and picked out some clothes for me. Yeah! I didn't have to pick them out - though I did actually find a few things I liked. Thankfully the stuff was clearanced so we didn't have to spend a fortune.
We had a great time and were happy to return to our boy. It was the first time he was without one of us, but we're told he did great! We're already looking forward to our next date!
