I spent my third night ever away from my child Saturday. Ray and I went to a (fun) wedding in Stillwater Saturday while our little Lola stayed with my parents.
Of course, we did get a few family pictures before Ray and I went out.
We had a good time at the wedding and reception. We talked up a good game, telling everyone that we left the 2-year-old with her grandparents so her parents could have a night out. We so rarely take time away from her.
But it wasn't too long before Ray leaned over and whispered in my ear, "I miss Lola."
And we did.
