ITA with Jeanne! MIL will be just fine with Hope, look how well she raised DH! Sometimes you need to just spend some alone time with DH even if it is just for a couple hours. You will be glad you went!!!

I agree that you need your time to be with DH. 2 small hours to have dinner and reconnect with him is nothing. It is a short amount of time that will definitely help to keep your marriage alive. Every mommy needs a little "me" time and every couple needs some "together" time too. Sure you will miss her while your out, but remember its important to enjoy time with your DH. Go have a nice dinner and enjoy some time for yourselves!

Thanks everybody! It really helps to have experienced mommies to help encourage me! If she didn't have the reflux I wouldn't have such a hard time leaving, but my mommy brain is worried that her tummy will hurt and mommy won't be here to comfort her. However, she is SO much better- her tummy hardly bothers her at all any more and when it does it settles pretty quickly. I also know that if she is REALLY crying that MIL will call us and we can just come home. I think it is ever MORE important to DH since he is home with me full time (since he got laid off in Feb he's been home and will be a "professional parent" when I go back to work in Jan for those who don't know). I know how important it is to stay connected to DH- so...unless she has a really bad day or something we are definitely going to go and I will keep all of your thoughts in my head! Thanks ladies! Oh- and our doggie went peacefully in her daddy's arms yesterday. As hard and as sad as it was we know it was the right thing as we wouldn't have wanted her to suffer. We are already missing her, but are grateful we had the time with her and she got the meet Hope. We got lots of pics with her and Hope and all of our other doggies- I will try to post some when we download them.

hey girl...

I am going out for a date night tonight for dh's birthday and I couldn't GET out of here any faster
what you are feeling is TOTALLY normal! You are just a dedicated mommy! IA with the other ladies, reconnecting with your SO/DH is a must. We all get so caught up with our lives, work, sports, gym, etc's nice to pop out of mommy/daddy mode and hop into "couple" mode.

btw, I am going out after the kids are asleep. For some reason, knowing they are already asleep and the sitter just has to keep guard over the place eases my anxiety about it.

And I am so sorry you here about your pooch.
