We went out tonight. As a family. Something we most likely will not repeat until sometime nearer the year 2014.
It was simple enough. Pizza. Member's only night at the Children's Museum. Anyone would have been thrilled. Delighted even. And it was like our two offspring had never been out in public before. Ever.
Wee girl received a new pair of pants from the museum's tiny little thrift store because she managed to douse herself with her milk in the ten minutes it took for us to go from restaurant to museum. And the boy child spent the last bit of the trip running around commando due to a bathroom incident.
Even though they both managed to enjoy themselves--it was delightfully uncrowded--they both expressed disappointment as we drove by the baseball stadium filling up with people and we weren't stopping.
But what else are we going to do?
What else?! We're going Home! And taking Baths! Putting on Jammies! And going to BED!
Well, that doesn't sound like a lot of fun.
Maybe not to you. But, believe me...it's the highlight of my day today!
Guess it's kinda hard to be the four-year-old sometimes.
