Girls Just Want to Have Fun

mainimg-gno

Last night, I had the luxury of having a girls’ night out — no hubbies, no kids, no butts to wipe.  A full night of adults-only, worry-free fun, and I enjoyed every little second of it.  What an incredible change of pace to not to have to be the mom or the cook or the maid for a whole night.  It is so liberating to just “be” for a few hours.  I think it’s only natural as a mom to feel like I’ve lost myself somewhere underneath all the nitty gritty crap that’s often involved with certain aspects of parenting.  The girl that just wants to have a little fun is definitely still hiding under there.  My friends helped me find her again, and she came out to play!  It was a great night that went by way too fast.  And although I am extremely grateful that my husband allowed me the chance to escape all the madness for the night, I knew that I just had to grit my teeth and step right over the mess that was ready to greet me upon my arrival back home.  So what if the laundry had tripled in size, the floor had collected even more crumbs, and the dishes were still waiting patiently to be unloaded from the dishwasher — la dee da. The kids were happy, clean and fed, and most importantly, were still in one piece!  Get-away mission accomplished!
