I think the time has come...

Cruze is 10 months old. Actually, he's closer to 11 months. And guess what? Phillip and I have yet to go anywhere together without him. Not a coffee date, not a run to the store, not a movie. Nada. We have a few reasons for his. A big one being that we don't have anyone close by that we are really comfortable with. You see, we have to be able to trust them with our baby and in our home... The people (or person) we trust with our baby? I really question the other part when curiousity gets the best of them if you get what I'm saying. Would it be okay to put up a sign on our bedroom door that reads "step away. now."? Probably not. So that leaves us in a bit of a pickle. The other reason why we've yet to go on a date without the prince of the house is simply because we don't want to. Or should I say didn't? You guys, I really really think the time has come. I think  I WE need this. We need to have a conversation over a good meal with some ALCOHOL without trying to feed a baby at the same time, without wondering if that smells is coming from our table, without trying to distract with books and toys etc.

The problem is, how and who can I trust with this task? My heart breaks at the very thought of us leaving him but I know it would be good for all of us. ALL of us. It will breath a new life into out fire (mine and Phillip's) and give us the renewed energy to tackle - not literally of course ;) - the task of taking care of this oh so very active, almost toddler.

So where do we start? Did any of you mama's have trouble leaving your little at home for your first date out? I'm sure you did. I'm telling you... we NEED this badly. I'll take all the advice and encouragement I can get!

It's also possible that my slightly desperate state has been caused by a teething baby. Poor thing is having SUCH a hard time.

speaking of him being almost 11 months, this was part of his 10 month pictures. It was taken about 1/100th of a second before he made my heart jump out of my body. As you can see, that wasn't the best position for a 10 month old. Genius Eliza. Just Genius. **No babies were harmed in the making of this photo**

Ummmm, Jenny? If you're reading this, I would probably trust you and Aaron... just saying.


  1. Sorry no advice here! We have yet to have a date either- since valentines day. Jasper is almost 6 and has yet to be left alone with non family members!

  2. It is sooo hard. I too am struggling with the same thing...although we have one set of g-parents around, it's weird, they aren't the best with him. Who knows, it's a constant battle and I'm exclusively breastfeeding, a whole new ball game! Let me know how and what you all decide...I'm sure he will be great, and you all will get some much needed time together!!

  3. Hi Eliza, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
