A First Time For Everything And To Everything A Time
Last night, at 18 months, and 9 days, Mike and I finally left ‘lil q at home while we went out for the night. We’d left her during the day a couple of times, but not like this. In truth, it’s not like we didn’t want to leave her, it’s just that there wasn’t anything we were itching to do that we couldn’t take her with us to do. Given how it took to have her and how fast she is growing, spending time with her is usually tops on our list.
Surprisingly, I didn’t even worry while we were at dinner. We were showing pictures to our friends, so we clearly were thinking about ‘lil q, but I know I wasn’t worried. Of course having one of the women from the day care watch her always helps. If there was one thing I knew about Ms. Susan, she’d have called if there was an issue. And since we had our phones out showing pictures, we knew we wouldn’t miss the call.
‘lil q seemed a bit shocked to see Ms. Susan in the house, but once that wore off, she was her usual happy self. Went to sleep without a fuss and took it all probably much better than we did. LOL.
Now that we have one under our belt, we’ll probably do it a bit more, but since hiring a professional to watch ‘lil q isn’t cheap, it probably won’t be too often that we go out without ‘lil q.
Finally, in keeping with my goals for the weekend, the Easter pictures are up. I’m attaching my favorite, but you can see them all by clicking the link.
