Today's a day that I've been dreading. I dropped off both kids at daycare today, in anticipation of returning to work full-time next week. (Eek! How did that happen??) I started sending the two of them a week early, to get some semblance of a schedule and to get the kids (ahem...me) used to it. Dropping them off, I cried the whole way home. Brian, being a fabulous guy, stayed home with me today. And you know what? We rediscovered what it's like to be just the two of us. We watched a movie from start to finish. We went out to a great Italian place where we wouldn't dare bring kids. We even ordered some sangria to share. The day was filled with some snuggling, giggling, and even talking about things non-boys related.
It's great to remember what being part of a couple feels like again.
