I'm running out of clever titles

I've forgotten how wonderful staying up late and sleeping late, with no interruptions feels. I miss my baby like crazy and am leaving in just a minute to go see her, but man was that nice. John and I went out for dinner last night, I got to eat without having someone yelling "mama" and have conversation with out being sidetracked and then forgetting what I was talking about. I got to act silly at the video store and sing at the top of my lungs while walking down the street. I got to hold my husbands hand, instead of carrying piles of toys and blankets. I got to turn the stereo up and dance while cleaning the kitchen without worrying about someone being woken up. I even got to snuggle all by myself with John and not have to share. I commented to the husband last night that it almost felt like "before we were parents." He just looked at me and shook his head, "yeah right, except that we miss her right now." He of course was right. Even though the night was awesome I did miss her and even thought I heard her crying in the middle of the night. I love being a mom 100% of the time, I'm just 100% grateful when I get a little break.

I can completely relate.. although my guy is old enough not to want to hang out at home all the time, and he's at school or out with his friends, or at his part-time job.. when he's home, he drives me insane... when he's not, I miss him like crazy. But you can still be silly in front of your wee ones.. it teaches them that sometimes, silliness is okay - and the world needs that. :)

You're right and I guess I should take advantage of that silly stuff now. Heaven knows that when she is older I won't be able to get away with it.

Well, you can still get away with it.. but you have to remember that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery when they act silly, too! :)
