It's hard to remember what life was like for Brad and I Before Children (BC). Our kids are only 3 and a half and 9 months, but we honestly find ourselves lost when they are not around sucking up all of our energy. Last night, Lexxa went and stayed with my parents. We had dinner with friends, and it was really nice to just relax and hang out with them without worrying about her. Logan was asleep by 8pm, so he's easy in that way and we didn't have to worry about him much either. This morning Logan went down for his first nap and it was so quiet in the house that Brad and I looked at each other and didn't even know what to do next. My first thought was to go back to sleep! Is that bad? I figured I might as well take advantage of getting some extra sleep since it doesn't happen often. Brad of course defaulted to watching crappy movies on Saturday TV--which he is still doing by the way, but the kids are both up and on the move. How is it that men can block out everything around them when they are watching TV? Ok, that's a whole separate post, so I'll stop! I guess I should give him a little credit since he is home with them every day, so he deserves a break.
Anyway, we do fine if we have date night and go out to dinner and a movie or something, but if we are at home in a quiet house, we're not quite sure what to make of it. I guess my point is that life BC seems like so long ago!
