It Is Happening

Around 7pm tomorrow evening, I am leaving my house.

With my husband.

In a shirt that doesn't feature streaks of baby puke and pants with nary a speck of smeared applesauce or yogurt on them.

And without my three little darlings.

Two of my nearest and dearest friends made the impossible dream a reality. For my birthday, they bought me a gift certificate for dinner at our favorite restaurant. They are watching the Triple Threat so that the hubs and I can go out to celebrate my birthday.

They have been warned, and they are accepting the challenge anyway. They are either the best friends on the planet or certifiably crazy.

My level of excitement for this event borders on the manic. We have not been out to dinner sans children for over six months.

I'm contemplating locking them inside my house to prevent them from fleeing in terror or exasperation...Right after I kiss them and hug them and promise to name my next child (ha!) after both of them because I am grateful beyond words.

    YAYAYAYAYAY!!! I am so happy for you! Don't come home early. Don't call them. They'll call YOU If there are any problems. They can handle the kids. You NEED this.

    Happy Birthday, hon!

    I'm so glad! I would have done that for you weeks ago!

    Unfortunately, distances prevent that from happening.

    Have a wonderful time tonight!
