Even though our dates aren't too fancy (usually dinner and some errands), I look forward to these nights away, and actually take the opportunity to spruce up a bit. In fact, I may go the extra mile- apply a little makeup and attire myself in something other than faded exercise pants.
Hey, it's the least I can do.
When we head out the door, I don't feel the least bit guilty. After all, a happy mom and dad make happy children. Right?
So I had to laugh when I overheard this little exchange between Emmy and Claire yesterday:
Claire was carrying around a little baby doll, not really sure what to do with it. Emmy decided to help out. Using her best grown-up voice, she sweetly bent down to Claire and asked,
"That's a cute baby! Do you want me to watch your baby while you and your husband go on a hot date?"
Just training them young.
