The concert was good, not my favourite live appearance but definitely enjoyable. In truth, it seemed weird seeing him in an indoor venue, there's something so much more personal about listening to his folky music in the great outdoors. We bought the boy a concert tee to match his concert onsie we bought at the last concert, when he was still safe inside my belly.
Speaking of the boy, what was notable about this particular night, is that it was his first time at home with a babysitter. Granted he was asleep when we left & asleep when we got home (I'm sure it was the easiest $50 bucks she ever made), but she did partake in the nighttime routine; read him his books, gave him his bottle and put him to bed.
And he did great. He didn't seem to mind that she was putting him to bed, he didn't cry or whine or anything. He just settled in and went to sleep like he always does. Momma was so proud.
I've been saying forever that I wanted to start introducing the boy to a babysitter, but I just haven't done it. I know that taking time to enjoy myself separate from my role as a parent is a good thing, that its beneficial for the entire family, but then why is it so hard to actually do?
How old is your little one? Do you use a babysitter? If so, how old was your little one when you first left him/her with a babysitter? I'm hoping now that we've had one successful evening with the babysitter it will be easier to do it again. Perhaps the hubs and I could even try having a date night - what a concept.
