Tonight was one of those rare meals. A much needed, relaxing meal with no high chairs, no kids meals were ordered, I did not pick up the same sippy cup off the floor numerous times. I did not rush through my meal to leave the restaurant before my toddler announces to the place "I GO BYE BYE", there were no awkward moments as I leave and discover the lovely mess of goldfish, crayons and french fries spread all over the floor.
Instead, it was a meal that began at 6:00 and ended at 9:30. It was quite the gathering of lovely ladies who had plenty to talk about. We chatted, shared BIG news, small news, sad news and new news. We swapped late wedding, baby and birthday gifts, shared vacation pictures, and all explained why we were running late! We talked and laughed about our jobs, husbands and babies. We ordered food, ate and continued to chat. The conversations were all over the place from detailed birth stories, coupon savings, newlywed adventures, reality TV, upcoming 10 year high school reunions, toddler tales, to the cleanliness of public bathrooms!ha! It was kind of a last minute gathering (where many were missed and not left out intentionally) that once we arrived we all realized was much needed and needs to happen much more often. All of us have so many things going on in our lives, but it was nice to stop, take a break and enjoy a good meal and great conversation. So, thanks ladies for a lovely evening- you are truly delightful!!
