It's almost like the Wife and I were getting to know each other all over again. We laughed. We talked about the last 10 years. We dreamed about the next 10 years. We reminded each other of all the stuff we will have to look forward to as we have another baby in a few months. Then we cried. And then we cried some more. Then we just enjoyed each other's company. I could tell that I made quite the impression on the Wife throughout the weekend by the fact that she told me she had forgotten how weird I was. It was nice.
I would suggest that every married couple get away from the kids and real life for a few days as often as possible. The Wife and I are going to be adamant about doing this again, and not waiting for another 10 years to make it happen. Which brings me to my next question - wanna do some babysitting next weekend?
