Ladies Night, Mommy Style

TG woke up at 7:30am. I'll take a 12 hour bedtime anyday.
Today DH had a busy day at school so TG and I spent some time catching up with her playmates and having Mommy/Daughter time.
She had a lot of catching up to do with her playmates and her toys and stuffed animals so it was a leisurely day indoors for us.
In the evening, one of TG's playmate's mommy's hosts a monthly Mommy's Night Out at her place. Essentially it's a rotation of mothers in our building who get together, nosh on sweets, drink a glass of wine and try to play a hand or two of cards.
It was very relaxing for me, especially knowing that I was in the building. I've had MNOs in the nabe but there is something about being in the building that relaxes me a bit.
I returned home after a few hours to find that TG woke up an hour after I left looking for me. DH spent 2 hours rubbing her back and trying to soothe her back to bed. he looked wiped. Is that what I look like during those crazy nights?
