Bird of Paradise
Oh vey, tonight is date night. It is a rare occurrence in our family. I have a 9 and 11-year-old, under normal circumstances I should be able to leave my kids for a few hours to go out and enjoy an evening to myself. Unfortunately, there is nothing normal about my circumstance. My 11-year-old is developmentally about 4 or 5 years old. My 9-year-old is incredibly mature, and she wants to be able to stay at home alone, but I’m just not confident she is ready, perhaps in a few years. My son’s school is wonderful and does bi-monthly babysitting for kids in attendance. Tonight we have reservations at the Melting Pot in Destin. While psychologically it’s great, dietary, I’m a nervous wreck. I have no idea what I should order. I ran today, and I’m going to do an extra workout today and tomorrow to make up for what I’m eating tonight. Furthermore, Sunday is my husband’s 40th birthday party, so I will be “pigging” out again Sunday night. Next week, I’m starting another cleanse.
