A Mommy Milestone.

There are a lot things I've learned to do for the first time as a mom. A lot of things that required me to step out of my comfort zone, become a grown up, learn to put others needs in front of my own, learn to be patient and at times place my pride aside and push a car shopping cart at the grocery store. I imagine the rest of my life being a mother of two little boys will be like this. Each day not knowing what to expect but pushing forward and doing the best that I can. But as I reach each mommy "rite of passage" I can't help but think, "hey I did it!" and maybe give myself a high five or two.

So tonight I reached another milestone. I, ALONE, took both boys out to dinner at a real sit down restaurant. Granted it was only Denny's, but it still counts as a real restaurant. Mike was working late, we hit the gym this afternoon and after cleaning this morning the last thing I wanted to do was cook and clean up again. So I did it, I took both boys to kids night and it wasn't a total disaster.

The only two mishaps were Owen dumping his water into my open diaper bag... lovely... and Carter falling out of his chair just once... but just laughing about it and getting right back up.
I do not have any plans to do this again in the near future, but knowing that I can feels good.

What's a post without a photo. Unrelated, but who doesn't love an Owen smile.

Good job super-mom! I've done that a couple times too, and besides all the work, it's actually a fun little date with the kids :)
