Date Night

My parents were in town this past weekend. And they volunteered to babysit Henry on Saturday so Mark and I could have a date night. Which was exciting for 2 reasons:

1. We never have an extended period of time for just the two of us, let alone an actual DATE.
2. Henry was due to poop, so I was thrilled to escape a stinky diaper.

And date night was great. I only felt like I forgot Henry somewhere two times. And those panicked moments only lasted a second.

We saw Safe House which was pretty good. Really, I would have been happy with anything because I haven't watched a movie in about 6 months where I got to enjoy the whole thing non-stop without pausing or missing part of it.

We ate popcorn. Split a Diet Coke. We even held hands. But it was sort of uncomfortable to hold hands with that armrest, and I couldn't reach the Sour Patch Kids candy with one hand, so that lasted about two minutes and then we went back to being an old married couple in our respective chairs. Date night ended with ice cream. And my date even walked me to the door and good-night kissed me. Perfect.

The only down-side to date night was Henry didn't poop. Apparently he likes to save his stinky diapers for Mommy. Which he proved to me today with THREE poopy diapers. And there were a couple of sneaky grins in there, too. He's smarter than he's letting on... I just know it.
