Our Date

Last month my husband and I went on a lovely date…

…actually, it was more of a weekend getaway at an “all-inclusive resort”.

The grandparents came to our house to babysit.

We loaded our luggage into the car and drove to our destination.

We took a long walk.

I wore a gown.

We had some good talks.

Meals were provided.

The service was impeccable and available to us anytime, at just the push of a button.

We left feeling happy and like we had something new to bring to the family.

You know, as I look back at this description, I can see I left out a few details. Let me start over.

Last month my husband and I went on a lovely date…on March 28.

…actually, it was more of a weekend getaway at an “all-inclusive resort”…also known as “the hospital”.

The grandparents came to our house to babysit…after we called to tell them my water had broken.

We loaded our luggage into the car and drove to our destination.

We took a long walk…through the hospital hallways, an IV pole faithfully accompanying us every step of the way.

I wore a gown…a lovely, modest hospital gown.

We had some good talks…while waiting for contractions to begin.

Meals were provided…at precisely 8, 12 and 5 each day. For me, not M.

The service was impeccable and available to us anytime, at just the push of a button…the button with a big red cross on it, located on the side of my bed.

We left feeling happy and like we had something new to bring to the family…i.e. THIS:
