Date Nights Are Happening!

You guys!  Lou’s mom is visiting us on a one-way ticket from Florida and it has been a GAME CHANGER!  We’ve been to the movies (the first in over 2 years), dinners out, and there are plans in the works for even more alone time!  It’s the best thing ever!  I definitely undervalue date nights.  Normally, we’ve not been the best at making alone time together a priority.  I’m nervous about baby sitters we don’t know, and while we’ve had friends offer (and have taken them up on it a couple times), it’s not the kind of thing we can do regularly.  But date nights are SO GOOD!  On top of remembering who we were as a couple before Teo joined us I get to wear normal pretty clothes that are light colored and not practical for toddler chasing!  That time together is so much fun, it feels a bit like time traveling to our life pre-baby.  I don’t want to live in that pre-baby time land but I do reallly enjoy a visit there!

Having Teo’s abuelita here is just the best thing ever.  He loves her so much, she loves him so much, and we love having help soooo much!  Everyone is winning!  I understand now why people move across the country to be closer to family.  We can’t do it, for a multitude of reasons, but it’s damn tempting.  For now we’ll just soak up every minute that we have Nani here!  Seeing Teo bond to her makes my heart just burst.  Family is just the best.  Have any of you made a major move to be closer to family while you raise your kiddos? xx- Sarah {shirt, skirt, shoes (on sale!!!)}
