Adam and I went out on a date tonight. A real live date with a paid babysitter involved. I've been telling Kenly all week that Miss Ashely was coming to play with her on Sunday. Kenly was really excited when Ashely got here.
The date was lovely...Iron Man 2 and Mela's for dinner. Nothing says love like a blow 'em up movie and some Indian food.
When we got home, Ashely said all went well. She said Kenly got upset at bedtime. She gave her a bottle and then told her goodnight. This is what she heard from Kenly's room....
Kenly: Mama be back. Daddy be back. It's okay. Mama be back. Daddy be back. It's okay. Be good girl.
Ashely went back in the room to comfort her when she upset herself repeating her little mantra over and over.
Ashley: Kenly, do you want me to stay in here while you fall asleep? Mama and Daddy will be back. It's okay.
Kenly: Uh-huh. Sit in chair. Mama and Daddy be back.
Ashley: Yes. If you close your eyes and go to sleep, Mama and Daddy will be back.
Ashely said that in just a few minutes she was asleep.
What a good girl. What a good babysitter.
