Bringing up Baby

So Larry and I very rarely go out without Creed.  Seriously.  We've only been on a few dates since Creed was born.  There are several reasons; Larry works so much and doesn't want to miss out on time with Creed in the little time he has left, we moved to a new place and didn't have anyone we could ask to babysit, and for about a year Creed didn't do very well with babysitters and spent a lot of time crying for mom so we felt bad for the babysitters, but even worse for Creed.

At any rate, Larry planned a Valentine's date on Friday night and luckily two of Creed's favorite people, Tyler and Lisa, we available to babysit for us.  Imagine what a relief it was to look back after our goodbyes and see Creed like this.
Larry and I went out to dinner and then saw a production of Romeo & Juliet.  Larry ended up forgetting the tickets and when he went back to the house he said Creed just smiled and said, "Bye, Dad!" as he headed back out.

As if all of that wasn't enough, after Tyler and Lisa left at the end of the night, I opened the fridge to see this

They made my new favorite dessert, stroopwafels, and left them for us to discover!

Best Babysitters Ever!

Um, I'd say Tyler and Lisa are keepers! And I'm glad to hear that you and Larry got some time for just the two of you.
