A few months ago Brady bought us tickets to the Wyndmonham Cricket Ball. It is a black tie event that is held every three years and we were invited to sit at Tom and Kat's table. I think buying tickets was really Brady's way of forcing me to call the babysitter that Tom recommended. Apparently, he thinks 3 to 5 years is too long to go without a date night (who am I kidding 1 year was too long)....smart guy.
Fran came over for the first time two weeks ago to meet Parker...then again last Friday while Brady and I went to Tratoria Rustica (the first place that told me they didn't have high chairs)...then again on Wednesday just for an hour (I got to go on a run mid day:)...then on Saturday night for the Cricket Ball. Parker loves Fran and usually can't wait for us to get out the door. It is harder on me than it is him. I can't lie, I was so nervous to have someone else put P to bed. That sounds silly, but it has always been either us or a grandparent and I was worried about someone else going through our routine. I had to laugh because I had put Parker in his jersey to sleep and Fran texted me to see where his trousers were for bed. I told her that he didn't need any (don't worry, he was wearing his boxer briefs), but when we got home, he had on sweat pants. Apparently, trousers are important bedtime apparel:).
Anyway, we had a great time...getting to dress up was definitely a bonus...so glad we went!
|Just so you know...we had P in his suit for about 10 seconds five minutes before this picture was taken...he stripped and put the jersey on before we could have proof!|
