The life of Parents

Paul had a dinner we were supposed to go to last night, so I arranged for a babysitter, and looked forward to a night out and I got all dressed up. Paul got home about an hour before the dinner was to start and said that he was really tired and that he didn't want to go. I had a babysitter lined up and I was not about to pass up on that opportunity even if I went out by myself. We decided to go just spend some time together, get take out and bring it home. We thought we would stop at Wal-mart really fast so that we could pick up a couple of things.
Well we never got out of there until just before our time was up.
So we got a babysitter and got all dressed up to spend our night at Wal-mart? As I realized that on our way home I couldn't help laughing. So this is what it is like to be a parent. Date night is running errands... We've got to change this scenario.

  1. I'm laughing because I, along with probably every parent reading your blog, has done the exact same thing. We've spent many a date at REI, Costco, you name it. Sad. But some Fridays I just want to go to sleep.
