Yesterday, for the first time in almost two years, it was not I who was able to be alone with my husband and go on a date! We did not talk non-stop in the van and were not able to browse in a bookstore without children hanging on us or pulling books off the shelves. I did not see a mother who reminded me of myself, with three children who were causing a ruckus and wouldn't let her shop and I did not think "How dare you bring children into a bookstore, this should be a place of peace!" (Seriously, I'm just kidding on that one!)
We did not enjoy a romantic meal of McDonald's food (hey, we were pressed for time!) We did not do a quick shopping trip at Walmart and then talk non-stop on the way way home as well. We did not realize that we need to do this A LOT more and how stupid we were by not doing this sooner.
