So glad I finally convinced him babysitters other than my mom are fine

Last Friday Aaron and I headed out as planned, leaving Gabbie with a babysitter. The babysitter was one of her favorite teachers from school, so it's not like we were leaving her with someone who doesn't know her. It has taken Aaron some time to be comfortable with the idea of leaving Gabbie with someone other than my mom, but he finally relented and we are both glad he did. (Although, I was the one feeling trepidation as we left that night - go figure.)

We got out of the house and saw Hot Tub Time Machine, which was as awesome as expected. It was great to get out of the house, just the two of us, and have fun together. It's something we don't do nearly often enough, that's for sure. We've been quoting movie lines back and forth ever since, which of course means we have something in common other than the Gabbster for once in a long while. 

Gabbie and her sitter had a great time and reports are that Gabbie was perfectly behaved and they had a great time. Unfortunately, babysitters are also pretty expensive, so we'll save doing that again until we have something specific to do or attend. It's nice, though, to have that in our parenting arsenal so that if we ever just really need to escape for an evening, we can.

I'm so glad you guys got out and were able to have some time together! Joe and I desperately need a night like that. (Ours would definitely involve alcohol.)
