Our weekend has pretty much looked like this
The kids haven't gotten to see the light of day. Kevin and I spent all day sorting through closets, putting away laundry, cleaning out areas of our house that still have boxes (almost 2 yrs after we moved in), cleaning out kid drawers, and donating lots of outdated clothes to DI.
Not every Saturday can be an exciting one.
Cate ate blocks and cheerios, watched Baby Einstein on the iPad, and bounced in the johnny jump up.
Andrew sang songs, stole blocks from Cate, stole the iPad from Cate, jumped on our bed, and ran through all of the piles that we made.
We're still not done with all the organizing we want to do... but after a day filled with hard work, we treated ourselves to a date night out at the movies.
The Help was seriously the best movie I've seen in awhile... though that isn't saying much because we don't get out that often. But it was really really good.
We ended the night with homemade cookie ice cream sandwiches with homemade hot fudge. Yum!
I love date nights, I love organizing my house, and I love babysitters than can drive.
