Slumdog Millionaire

The Grandparents babysat (woo hoooooo!) so FD and I could venture out on a date. We saw the movie Slumdog Millionaire. It was excellent. We also had time for dinner and a beer. (double wooo hoooo)

It's nice to be human again, to get out and actually have a conversation that isn't about taking out the garbage, or picking up meds at the pharmacy. FD and I go days without speaking about anything other than chores and duties, responsibilities and parenting issues. "Did you get the new prescription, did you schedule your classes, did you pay the electric bill, did the dog go out tonight, is the laundry done, has Froggy had her seizure meds, has she pooped today, had her Prevacid, did the doctor call, did you hear about the accident on the 405, take out the recycling please, give Froggy a bath, the dishes still need to be done, we're out of catfood and Froggy's supplement, I need an oil change, turn out the lights, get some sleep, tomorrow is a big day."

I think FD and I enjoy our dates more than anyone ever in the history of coupledom. And coming home to our sweet girl, dressed in a diaper and curls is the best end to a wonderful evening.

So glad you guys were able to have a great date night. I can't think of anyone who deserves it more. :)

I also really enjoyed Slumdog Millionaire! I've been recommending it to everyone.

Glad you got out and got to experience a relaxing evening! And love the pics of Froggy's haircut - those curls are amazing!
