Dan’s dad just moved in to our neighborhood so instead of a 2 hour long train ride, he lives a 15 minute bus ride away. We picked up Max and the three of us went over to his house today and saw Dan’s dad, Dan’s sister Patty, and her two kids. It was pretty fun.
Tonight though Dan and I went out for dinner. And we did not bring Max with us. My mom came over and took care of her for a few hours. I can honestly tell you I forgot she existed for at least one of those hours. It wasn’t my first time being away from her because there was one night she spent in the hospital when she was jaundiced and there was one night where I was in the hospital and she was with Dan. But other than that I’ve been with her for her whole life.
So we went out to a Brazillian steakhouse and ate all of the meat. It was amazing. We were only away from her for about three and a half hours but it was really nice. I got to read my Kindle on the train. Dan and I got to talk without worring about Max being about to cry or that she needed a diaper change.
When we got home my mom said she was great for her. The outfit she put her in, a onesie with little leg ruffles and buttons up the back was on backwards. Dan also put that outfit on her backwards. Not sure why they both did that. Anyway, my sister is coming up at the beginning of June so I’m hoping she’ll take her for a few hours then too so Dan and I can have a date night once a month.
