Elinor and I are always together. Dave and I never have alone time. When my mom was in town she offered to watch Elinor so we could have a much needed date night. It was so nice, we went to a movie, got coffee and walked around Salem. We even lurked around our old apartment. We had a lot of fun and actually got to talk! Most of our conversations are while Elinor is squawking away and half of the time we don't finish what we are saying. We talked about what we did that day to future plans.
We did miss the baby so much though. When we walked in the door we thought she would come running to us for hugs but when we opened the door she barely looked up from playing with my mom. We need to make a point to plan more date nights not only for us but I'm sure Elinor needed a break from mama too!
This is the post that I was trying to write friday but my blogger app kept deleting it. Every time I rewrote it, I couldn't remember exactly what I had said before and it got shorter and shorter...so frustrating!
