Wild thing

Dave and I had so much fun last night, even though we got called back to the house by our babysitter before we even made it to the show we were going to see. You see, we don’t get out much alone any more. Not that we couldn’t…but it IS made a little more difficult by having a child who is not used to being watched by someone other than family members. In fact Coen has never even been put to bed (at night) by anyone except either me or Dave. EVER.

Even though we put Coen to sleep last night before we headed out…he woke up and was NOT happy that we weren’t there…so we came back…sang a bit, rocked a bit and got him back into bed and went out for a second shot at our date. We decided to stick a little closer to home and check out our ‘hood (remember this post? Our hood is a little scary). We found a local pub…and had a blast! It was karaoke night and there was a great mix of people there…the cowboys, the punk rockers, the couple dressed in head to toe RED, the gangster, the hippie couple from down the road…so much fun! We got to know some of our neighbors and played some pool, just like the good old days!

Dave sang some karaoke and totally worked the crowd! It was so hilarious! So today we are nursing our self-induced headaches and relaxing at home. Happy Sunday all!

    this is such a sweet post. It makes my heart happy (the soft mama that I am) that you came back to put your little one back to bed – it is so worth it! And then that you still got out to have fun – that’s great.

    So funny, when our kids were babies and toddlers I needed to get out more, so we’d dash out for dates in between nursings, naptimes, bedtimes and such. But now that they’re older we don’t like leaving them behind – we like to be with them and they with us (hopefully they’ll still feel that way when they’re teens).

    I’m hoping children who’s parents have wanted to be with them will want to be with their parents when most children can’t wait to be separated from their parents – we’ll see.

    What a sweet photo……I LOVED that book as a kid, myself. So glad you guys got out and had an adventure right in your own neighborhood! Happy Love Day!

    That bar didn’t happen to be the Locker Room by chance, did it?

    That place is one hell of a dive.

    even if it didn’t turn out quite as planned – three cheers for a great night out!!

    sounds like a great night out
    and sometimes deviating from the plan
    can be a good thing…
    and i totally heart that book!

    I think karaoke is only for the brave. Although I recently watched PS I Love You and boy if your husband can work a crowd like that one now he’s a keeper for sure. 😉 Sounds like an excellent night.
