I had such a good evening!

DH took Drake to the park so Mamma can have some alone time! I got SO much done. Well first, I was blasting Alice in Chains, I cleaned the living room and the kitchen, swept and vacuumed. I made a fresh batch of sweet tea, and a pot of coffee. Then I made meatballs and spaghetti (Emily, I finally made him his dinner. LOL) and fresh sauce with sweet peppers and tomatoes and of course garlic bread. It was only like 2 hours but still! I really needed to recharge and I finally got to! I told DH he needs to take him at least once a week. Not only is it good for me but it's SO good for Drake. DH works a LOT and never gets one on one with Drake, so everyone wins! Mainly me!

It was so nice. He came home and told me how much he loved having one on one with Drake, and I think that's really important for him to bond with his son without Mommy around because let's face it, he is a total Mammas boy and wants me all the time. I am completely fine with that! I just think Father and Son should have some time together. Dave works A LOT so I am not sure how often this will happen, but I am demanding once a week! Next week, I think I will still cook dinner, but maybe something that just goes in the oven so while ti's cooking I can watch something and paint my toes.

I am going to suggest the same to Scott and see his opinion I would LOVE for Eve to spend a whole day (or even just a whole half!) with Scott. Eve is such a Mummy's Girl that when I am around, she will prefer me for everything.

What do you think you will watch?

I have no idea what I would watch. We do not have cable, but we have Amazon Prime which is the same thing as Netflix. We have been watching The Amazing Race lately. I need a show for me though. I'll have to look. I would suggest that to Scott too. You could really use the time alone and Eve could really use her Daddy alone.

Sarah, yes I did! When I said to him last night that we should make this a weekly thing he said "That would be great, I would love that." Awww yeahhh!!!

Lol Jess I am sure he was happy that you made him his spaghetti! Hopefully you can make it a weekly thing! Everybody would win! (and yes I am a little jealous too!)

I hope that they have a blast when they are out! Where is he going to take her? AND I hope that it lasts, not just a one time thing. Same for me!

Gary wanted to do that once a week. But somehow we ended up being too tired to leave the house, like ever after working all day LOL
