Well, the cat’s out of the bag.
A couple of weeks ago I made a plan to celebrate Liam’s birthday this weekend, a little early. I asked my parents if they would watch the girls tonight (Frances’s first overnight!) so Liam and I could stay the night in Philadelphia. I made a dinner reservation at a happening restaurant and managed to keep things a surprise.
Well almost. Up until two days ago, when Liam told me that he might have to do a last minute meet and greet for work in Philadelphia tomorrow. When he saw the horrified look on my face he said, “Or not. I could try to find someone else to do it.”
Ultimately, he could find no one else to go in his place. And so, I felt compelled to disclose the details of the weekend. Now here we are, in the City of Brotherly Love, celebrating the start of another season of birthdays, the impending arrival of a new baby, and a night away without our little loves. Feeling blessed. Hopefully the little munchkins are sound asleep by now and dreaming peacefully.
