Do you like me? Yes.....no....maybe

I just got a phone call from a boy.
A boy who asked me out on a date Friday night.
A boy who said he'd make all the plans cause he knows how busy my days can be.
That boy is my husband.

We decided long before little James entered our life and made us a family of 3 that we didn't want to become "those" parents. The ones who never go out anymore because heavens forbid they leave their baby for a few hours. Who's lives revolve around their children. The couple that is no longer Mr. & Mrs but simply mom and dad. So in an effort to keep the spark alive a date night it is! Now we just need to find a baby sitter....but with a face like this I don't think it will be too hard!

What will be hard however is finding something to wear that fits, doesn't have an elastic waist and isn't covered in spit up! This is one challenge I'm willing to take on!

Have so much fun! This is adorable! Way to go for having date night! :) Loving both photos, but Jamie's little face in that one is the most precious thing EVER. How on earth did they get him to sit like that?! ha! So cute!!

Oh and if you ever need a sitter, Tulsa has some place called Seeking Sitters or something where they've already gone through background checks, etc. The company sends someone out according to your preferences and it's really reputable. I bet KC has somewhere like that if you google around! :) Just a tip you didn't ask for, but I'm feelin wordy today.. ha!

that is the cutest picture ever! Love that hat! Enjoy date night. My husband and I are the same way, our lives are pretty much filled with our kids but we don't let them control our lives. Make sense?

Jordan said...

Good for you guys! We plan to not be "those parents" one day either. ADORABLE pic of Jamie! Oh, and if you need a sitter, I'd love to help!

He is so flipping adorable!!! Um...and not only would I be 100% willing to babysit for you I'm a mom too so I know what to do. LOL!!! Seriously though...you have my number and if you need a sitter call. I'd love to love on Jamie for an evening (I'm sure Ellie would too).

Enjoy date night my friend!!! XOXO
