Dating my husband
This past Sunday my lover and I went to a country pub and I glanced in the dining room and saw my husband with a beautiful older woman, but not just any woman.It was my mother and, from the way they looked at each other and were touching, I could tell instantly that it was more than a friendly lunch; they were quite obviously in love with each other.I have had a string of long-term affairs and short-term flings.During the past 8 months I have basically been living with another man in a neighbouring town to the one I live in.Someone was always up, needing a drink of water, using the bathroom, etc.
Whether we were hanging out with friends, snowboarding, having a lazy movie marathon, or just goofing off, we were inseparable.
It literally was a month before all the stars aligned, I gave in to letting the kids watch a movie in their own rooms, and I settled down with the baby to rent a movie I'd been wanting to watch with the hubs.
Here's how things went down: the movie wasn't available, the baby never went to sleep, the kids started fighting, and the toddler peed his pants right before the end of the movie. I used to think that going out was the only way to make date night happen, but the truth is, we have worked hard to own a home and build a life together and sometimes the best date night is just simply being together in the house we've brought our babies home to.
Speaking of dinner and a movie, that type of date is really only for the lazy amongst the coupled pool.
Each and every night, I vowed to get the kids in bed early so we could actually have time to stay awake and watch something together but it never worked out.
It’s a normal Tuesday afternoon and I need to change clothes so I can go to the park with my boys. I consider putting it on, but it’s way too fancy to wear to the park and I’d die a slow death if my kids touch it with their sticky, peanut butter covered hands. I tried contacting a few babysitters, but none of them worked out. That sounds much better than putting on an actual pair of jeans and makeup.
