Several months ago (March? April? Time tends to blend together these days) Hubby and I made arrangements for the girls to sleep over at grandma and grandpa's, giving us an unprecedented night to ourselves. Then a flu bug ruined those plans and two of the girls and I were down for the count. It was quite a disappointment since Hubby and I had spent weeks planning our night out.
To celebrate our upcoming wedding anniversary Hubby secretly arranged for his parents to take our girls this past weekend. At first I was unsure and almost said no. We already had plans to attend a pool party during the day with his parents and I was concerned our daughters would be exhausted. In the end I decided to give it a try.
My main concern was what would happen at bed time. Our daughters have never spent a night without us. I shouldn't have worried. Cakes and Tortilla conked out right away. Roo and Sue-Sue treated the whole affair like a slumber party, but when grandma and grandpa moved them to another room and turned on a night light they settled down. In fact last night Tortilla asked to go sleep back at grandma's, so I guess the night was a success.
As for Hubby and I, we went to see the latest Harry Potter movie. It was OK. This was my least favorite book, so it shouldn't have surprised me that this installment of the movie wasn't so hot. Still, it was nice to be out without worrying about rushing to get home. Bed time was a bit strange without hearing the usual stirrings and sounds from the girls' room. All and all it was a fun time and a great surprise from Hubby. And in case you're wondering, I only called my in-laws once to check on the girls, so I think I handled the sleep over fairly well!
