Sometimes, for a split second, I think I'm the old me, the one who doesn't have a baby. I will think of maybe DH and I should go to a movie tonight or maybe I will have a girls night this week. But then reality comes back to "and who is going to watch the kid?" Now don't get me wrong, love my kid all that jazz, but I miss just doing something spontaneously!
Of course I can still go to a movie or have a girls night but it has to be planned out in advance, we have to make sure my parents are available or another babysitter, I have to decide if it's worth it to dip into the boob juice stash, etc, etc. Plus, I feel bad if two events are close together like oh we can't do anything this weekend because we did such and such last weekend. Most of the time I'm just like nah forget it we'll stay in. So back to my question, how much do you really get out for you or with DH/friends?
