Adventures in Babysitting

Posted on: May 9, 2010

We’ve discovered something wonderful: a free babysitter, who we utterly trust and is happy to watch over our babe, while Borys and I get to go out on a date! I’ve mentioned before, that since the birth of our lovely little Niko Borys and I have only had two dates! Yes, two dates. Not a lot for eight months, but I guess this is somewhat to be expected when you’ve got a baby and are first time parents.

Anyway, last night we had Dziadzio over for dinner, then we put Niko to bed and headed out to the movies. These days, once Niko goes to bed, he’s TKO ’til at least after midnight (but usually until about 5 am – sweet little angel that he is), which means we’re safe to leave him and don’t really have to worry that he’ll wake up. Of course we left a bottle just in case, and our cell phone, which we kept on vibrate in our pockets. But the night went off without a hitch. We had a date, Dziadzio babysat (aka watched TV) and Niko slept all the while. I think this could the beginning of a beautiful new tradition!

Note: Pics below are Niko giving me my first Mother’s Day card ever: sweet, thoughtful, baby. And I didn’t even know he knew how to shop!
