So here it is. My first night out on my own since my baby was born. Actually, now I think about it, it’s my first night out with ‘the girls’ in almost two years – but that’s not cause of the baby.

Maybe I’m missing the odd occasion, in my memory banks, but I don’t think so.

Somehow I feel nervous, really. Nervous about leaving my itty bitty almost 11 week old at home with a very protective, caring and capable father. Nervous about being at least half an hour away from her. Nervous about having just a typical ‘girls’ night.

Even though it won’t be ‘typical’ since few of us are big drinkers and even less of us are big spenders!

But I think it will do me good to take a step away from ‘mom’ and from ‘wife’, from ‘cleaning lady’ and ‘cook’ and ‘laundry maid’ and return, if only for three or so hours, to just ‘Me’.

As I don some makeup, fish my heels out from the back of my wardrobe, and screw the lid on the bottle of expressed milk, I’ll take a moment to ask you when the last time was that you got to be just ‘Me’?

  1. You know its really funny that you ask, I just wrote a post about what happened to me the last time I was able to have a few hours alone! LOL! You will never belive this story! Dropping by from SITS! Happy Saturday Sharefest!

  2. Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest! I hope your “girls night out” went well last night…you will have to do a follow up post to that! Good for you btw! You need to take off your mommy/ wifey hat sometimes and just be “you”! Congrats on your new baby…I’m sure hubby took good care while you were out with your gals!

    Happy holidays to you and your family!!

  3. It’s good to take a little time away every now and again. If you can relax just a teensy bit, the little part of you that’s been sacrificing that “me” time will thank you for it. 🙂

    Daddy will likely appreciate you more too when you get back! 🙂

    Happy First Holidays to your newborn! Here from SITS.
