Tonight, I AM the Queen!

Prince Charming is taking me on a date tonight! Yippee!

We didn't really date when we were "dating."

We definitely don't date now that we're married.

But, tonight, we have a date. He surprised me by setting everything up without my knowing about it. He even arranged child care in advance (thank God for our pastor and his wife!).

For two hours tonight (Only two hours, you ask? I'm a nursing mom.) I can forget about the fact that I got very little sleep last night.

I can forget about the fact that Sleeping Beauty flat out refused to take a nap today.

I can enjoy uninterrupted time with my husband instead of being interrupted with Cinderella's incessant chatter.

Two hours with just me and Prince Charming.


I'm not sure what we're going to do. I know it'll involve an inexpensive dinner (we're on a tight budget). It might involve watching some more episodes of the first season of Heroes (we borrowed it from a coworker; we don't have television).

All I know is, leaving the house or staying home, I'M GOING ON A DATE!

Without my kids!


I feel like the Queen! The Queen of a very poor kingdom, but a Queen nonetheless.


  1. What a wonderful treat. :) I hope you enjoyed your date.

  2. Ooh! I smell a trip to Inca's! (Or as my husband calls it, Inca-dinka-doo.)
