This is a shout out to my husband....

The fact is, since Sadie was born, my husband and I don't get to go out alone hardly ever at all. Whenever we do, it involves driving for 40 minutes to the grandparents house for free babysitting and then going out, then coming back and another 40 minute drive. It's actually kind of exhausting. But I miss my husband. He's cute and sweet, and is an amazing work-from-home dad. I actually have to announce to people that, "YES, men can take excellent care of their children just as much as a mom can!"

Case in point, when Sadie had to go to the dermatologist because of a birthmark, the nurse was dumbfounded that Charlie arrived with Sadie's insurance card, information, and toddler in hand. She said to him, "Wow! The wife really made sure you have everything! Um, this is your daughter, correct?"

Uh, yeah. He didn't swipe some kid off the street, look at her, and say, "Wow. You need a trip to the dermatologist." He came up with all the insurance info on his own. And truth be told, I would have probably forgotten the whole appointment existed.

So, because my husband is so great... I thought I would ask him out on a date. Via blog.... 'cause we are super busy like that.

Oh, and if you like the t-shirt... you can get it here. For men or women...


  1. Well I hope you ended up with a date! Now that our kids are in school, my husband and I started having our dates at lunch time during the week. It's great, we go out to eat and actually get to talk to each other without interruption or cleaning up a spilled drink! :-)

  2. It's so sad but true a date night with adult conversation? I don't think I would know what to do with myself. Hope you got to go on your date.

    Stopping by from SITS, have a wonderful day.

  3. Yup snow looks so pretty you forget all about what comes along with it :).

    Thanks for stopping by ;).

  4. Cute post...I hope your hubby said yes! I can completely relate about not getting out very much: I live for date nights! Have a great week from a fellow SITSta. :)
