Last night Mr. R. and I had date night. It involved make-up, drinks, a trip downtown and... as Barney would say, we SUITED UP! Piper has been in our lives for 5.5 months and this was our first night away from our little one. She cried just a bit when we left the house and I almost took off my heels and called it a night. But she was in the capable hands of my in-laws and Mr. R. insisted that tonight was a now or never kind of date.
It wasn't until we arrived downtown, that I realized how much I needed a date night. I needed that time to reconnected with my husband. I needed to have night that was not dictated by a feeding schedule. I needed to have a conversation that didn't revolve around Piper. Don't get me wrong, I love Piper more than life itself, but I also need to miss her every once in a while.
