Will was born April 8th of 2010.
I have had my mom babysit him on October 6th (our anniversary) for 2 hours. I also had mom watch Will during two photoshoots and during a friend’s surprise birthday party. But beyond that, Will is with Jeremy or I ALL THE TIME. That’s four times in 15 months. I think that means it was high-flippin-time for a date night.
Of course, because I am one of those paranoid new moms, I didn’t hire a babysitter (what’s the going rate anyway? do kids know CPR? What if the baby has a dirty diaper – does the babysitter change them? I have no idea!)….I asked dear old Little Debbie. Thanks mom by the way. I forget to say that when I come home and you freak me out with your little “WHERE’s THE PACI?” act. So not funny.
We decided to go to Kampai for sushi and hibachi….and it wasn’t exactly what you would call busy.
Let’s just put it out there…that’s a pretty scary scene.
but neither of us disliked the food or got sick…so we just chocked it up to southerners not wanting raw fish. They will eat fried pig skins…and frog legs…that were cooked on an old oil barrel that has been outside collecting mosquito eggs….but sushi they pass.
Either way, we had fun. It was nice to just be away without dealing with picking food out of a strangers hair. Which has happened more than once by the way.
And of course, hibachi comes with it’s own show. Jackie Chan (that’s what I thought he said the first time) here was amazing. He was like a master of fried rice.
And I love it when they catch things on fire and make tiny volcanos. Basically I am a 12 year old boy.
And it was delish. both the food and the time away from unhousebroken toddler.
After dinner we had no idea what to do…so we went shopping for Will. of course. that’s what you do when you are away from them, right? you do things for them anyway.
And it just so happened that that evening the sky decided to give us a show.
I coerced Jeremy into pulling the car over just so that we could snap a picture. Yes, we were on the side of the road. Nothing says romance like power lines and semi trucks.
Side note on this random post – who else sees a weirdo inbreed cousin of Mickey Mouse in that cloud?
TOTALLY CHANGE OF SUBJECT – BE WARNED.
I also wanted you to know that I have been trying to continue my organization efforts here. Which means that I streamlined the sidebar buttons a little bit…while adding our Contact Info-or-ma-shun. Plus the photo of Will cracks me up…I can basically hear him laughing.
I would also like to welcome a new sponsor – Coco & Ella Designs. They have fantastic designs for everything from home decor to baby announcements…which you can print to your little hearts desire….for SUPER LOW COST. Two thumbs up…if I had more thumbs, they would get those up too.
Oh and because I know this will tickle your fancybone, we (as in me and my little helpers) have been up to projects….painting projects, building projects (all I gotta say is Ana White is like the Michael Jordan of Planet Awesome), and some general projectyness….on the cheap of course.
So that is what we’ve been up to. What are you guys up to? Anyone been on a date night lately? Or had a romantic roadside rondevous? Or perhaps you know how much to pay babysitters? Or maybe you are like us and don’t get out of the house enough to justify a swipe of deodorant much less a babysitter?
