Be A Better Me (You) Challenge -Day 10~Date Night

by Deborah Cruz

Yesterday’s Be a Better Me (You) Challenge -Day 9~ Pay Attention to the little things

was addressed pretty easily. You guessed it. I nipped that little Pedro sonofabitch right where he lives. Yes, me and my Nads had a date late last night. It was all going great until it was time to pull the trigger, then I had that hesitation. You know that hesitation you had when you were about to give birth. All of the sudden it was like, Oh shit….time to back pedal not sure I can handle this sort of pain. Well, same thing..every single time. Probably the only reason the Hairy Monkey Syndrome affects me at all. That’s why I always went to a professional but it gets hard when you have two little girls in tow. The facial expressions and sounds alone, well, that’s enough to turn to Nads but couple that with the fact I am probably scaring them to death of turning into a monkey, well,enough said. Nads it is!But hey, I’m a hairless Chihuahua today.Good thing, the Big Guy is coming home. I’m sure he will appreciate the effort! I got a lot of promises of shaven legs…hope you ladies followed through!Smooth legs always make you feel sexier than stubbly gams a la MOnique!

Today’s Be A Better Me (You) Challenge-Day 10 ~ Date Night
I know you are asking, how does that make me a better ME? Well, remember that girl you were before you became who you are? Well, that young lady is going to help you find your way back to who you want to be.Remember when you were dating Mr. Right and it was all about you? Getting primped and pampered? Long drawn out conversations about who and what you wanted to be?Where you wanted to go in life? How you were going to make your dreams come true?Back when he hinged on every word that came out of your mouth because you were so fucking fascinating? Well, you still are..everybody , including you, just forgot. Go way back, when your whole life was ahead of you before you were here…smack dab in the thick of it. Pencil in the time and date. Tell your big guy to make it happen, just like he used to. You just worry about you. Just worry about getting ready, setting expectations of having a good time and connecting with your Big Guy.Well, and maybe finding a sitter..but all the planning of this lovely romantic evening should be his responsibility.I promise by doing this, you will feel like the woman you were before you were a Mommy and wife. I am actually going to do this but my big date night isn’t until September 25th ( my birthday). There’s a weekend planned in the city; filled with romance, good food, great company, a hotel stay, 24 hours without my babies,some shopping and a whole lot of visits from DEBI. I’m looking forward to it and I am pretty sure the Big Guy is looking forward to having Debi all to himself for a night! So, when are you planning your big date night? What do you do? What makes you feel special for date night?
Link up your post in response to the challenge and share your ideas!Happy Date Night!

Hi! I'm back from Mexico and making the rounds in my beloved blog world.

I know exactly what you mean. When my girls were small it was so hard to find that me that I'd put away. But like I tell my sister who has small children too, those days of taking care of yourself first and foremost both physically and emotionally, they come back. I have learned as I turn the corners of my life that women tend to go down one of two distinct paths. They either have lost themselves so completely to motherhood that they have completely forgotten that girl who is still there in every woman's heart just waiting for her turn again. When their children grow up and away as they are meant to do, those women don't change. They stay mired in the eternal stage of motherhood. They keep up the frumpy look, never investing in themselves. They keep their focus on their children even after their children have left the nest. It's because they have no idea what else to do since they gave themselves completely over to motherhood.

And then there are the mothers who find these years to be the best ones of their lives as they learn to rediscover themselves.

You, my dear, are going to be just fine. To take time for yourself and your husband is exactly what you should be doing, so you never forget that girl who will be ready to come out full force when your girls fly away.

Oh and from one September girl to another, Happy Pre Birthday!
