The parents will play!! Both boys are deliciously spending the night with their grandmother tonight, and though I am very worried about her, I am so thrilled. We are having a couple of people over for drinks and games and maybe some adult conversation. No one invited even has children, so I may not be able to talk about boobs or poop all evening! As I prepare, I am struck by the thought that there are many things that have changed since having children. The following is a list of only a few things that non-children having folks might get to enjoy.....
-Lighting candles without the risk of someone burning the entire house down.
-Having drinks, then sleeping.
-Sleeping past 5AM after having said drinks.
-Being able to laugh, hoot, holler, and yes, even listen to music loudly, if it comes to that.
-Not tripping over humongous items made of plastic all evening. (we hid most evidence that our house usually resembles a play ground)
Thanks again, mamasita. You rock in so many ways.
Pictures of a young aviator coming soon. Stay tuned!
