"But I want to come with you," you said. "You can't, dear heart. Not tonight." It's not that we don't enjoy your and your sister's company. Quite the contrary, actually. But every now and again, parents need to go on dates. Especially parents like us, who don't get out nearly as often as we should. Tomorrow Daddy turns 42, and we'll celebrate as a family all day, I promise. And I know you're going to have so much fun with your babysitter. But tonight, dear heart, is just for us.
