Tonight, I think I like him

Tonight is the husband's company Christmas party. Yes, I know, it's after Christmas, but a night out is a night out no matter what you call it.

I asked my mom the other night if she could watch the midgets. She agreed. The plan was for me to drop them off after school. My brother would be in charge until she got home from work. We would pick them up on our way home from the party.


Thursday night I had to run something over to my mom's house. When I walked in she mentioned that she wasn't sure who was walking in the door. In other words, the boyfriend was on his way over, too.

I like him. To a degree. He treats my mom as a woman should be treated, but I do have my issues. Now is not the time to discuss them, but believe me, those doubts are there.


As her and I were discussing drop-off and pick-up times he interjects, asking if he could make a suggestion. He asked how my mom felt about letting my midgets spend the night so the husband and I could have an adult night. All night (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). I could pick the kids up Saturday morning before him and my mom head to my Grandma's place to install a web cam (something I thankfully got out of doing). My mom is certainly not going to say "no" to him. That right there is one of my issues with him, but at this moment? I was not about to argue with someone telling me to leave my kids with their babysitter all night. To argue that would be stupid. I may be crazy, but stupid I am not!


So tonight, I think I might like him.

A few extra brownie points with the bf for sure. A night out really is a night out since I'm sure they are few and far between. Have a great night you crazy kids, hope you have a blast!

Ya, don't say no!
I get where you're coming from with the boyfriend. My mom is married to a man I'm still not sure i like: they've been together 7 years, and I'm still waffling. And he would NEVER suggest my mom takes the kids overnight. So your mom's boyfriend wins a point for that in my books!
Have a terrific time! Rock the house mama!
