Usually, I plan for weeks for something cool for my husband's birthday.
Nowadays, he's lucky if I have the chance to email him a Happy Birthday.
This year, I figured I'd give him something that we really really deserve.
I arranged for a playdate for my daughter and dropped her off and we went to eat dinner together sans child.
It is the first time in 2 years we have had dinner together outside without our child.
We only had 90 minutes but it was the best 90 minutes ever. We walked home hand in hand. We even had time to go vote in our primary election.
Of course, we saw everyone in our neighborhood.
Days later, I had moms telling me they were so jealous seeing us together sans toddler.
When I told them it was the first time in 2 years we did that, they didn't feel so jealous.
We now have a special place in our hearts for our neighborhood mexican restaurant.
