|Date Night Selfie|
But the other night, I had a night alone with my little man. Mike was away on business and Jenna had a 'big girl sleepover' at Grandma and Papa's. This left me with Alex...He woke up from his nap and for the first time we weren't running to go pick his sister up. We got to just hang out and play without any distractions. We had dinner together and he got to take a long bath without the company of his big sister. He got to pick out his books before bed (Jenna usually has an opinion about what we read to him) and he got some extra snuggles before bed, instead of some rushed kisses as we prep Jenna for her long, drawn out bedtime routine.
It was nice...it was quiet...and best of all? My night responsibilities ended at 7:00...a good two hours earlier than normal. Best.date.ever.
