Happiness is: moms' night out

Before I left the house tonight, I had to face a Lily-inquisition.

“Why are you not eating dinner with us?”

“Well, some of the neighborhood mommies are getting together to have dinner.”

“Will (insert the name of every single child on our street) be there?

“Nope. Just the mommies.”

“Not even the daddies?”

“No. I promise.”

“Okay. Well, you’ll peek on me and snuggle with me when you get home, right?”

“Yes! Like I always do.”

After a few big hugs and kisses, she let me go.

I got in the door just a few minutes ago. But before I go upstairs to kiss my sweet sleeping babies goodnight, I couldn’t resist sitting down to capture how I feel right this minute.

Happy. Light. Lucky to have such awesome neighbors.

Conversation ranged from jobs to constipated kids to the struggles — and awesomeness — of being a mother.

And it was so much fun.

Already can’t wait to do it again.
