Gotta give props to my DH. Last night I kind of threw a fit because he went to a brewery with his friend after I had had the kids all day, taken DD (and Mirabelle) to ballet, and got back saying that I wanted to go get a Slurpee after the big kids were in bed. He didn't think I was serious about the Slurpee, so made his other plans. I was really just trying to avoid the "witching hour" with Mirabelle for half an hour or so...every day from about 6:30-8:30, she's inconsolable and it's been wearing on me. Anyway, he went to the brewery and brought me back a root beer float.
I was good.
Then today, he came home, handed me $200 cash and said "Go get ready and get Mirabelle's bottle ready." He had set it up with one of my friends that she would come pick me up for dinner at Ruth's Chris. Her husband ended up getting home early, so she came and got me early and we stopped off at Joanns on the way to Ruth's Chris. I had my first FULL drink in almost a year, I avoided the witching hour and bedtime, and I got to go out to a yummy dinner with my friend.
And tonight was Mirabelle's first time taking a bottle. She did it without any problems...she had two bottles while I was gone!
