In celebration of my hubby’s Birthday we decided we needed to go out on date night and leave the kids at home. We left the kids with my mom and I gave her a rundown of all the things she needed to know. I even gave her instructions on cloth diapering the kids (something I never thought I’d do in this lifetime). We set off for our favorite Mexican restaurant and had a wonderful dinner.
Next we went to a sporting goods store and my hubby picked up a new baseball glove as his Birthday gift. We had to head off to another store to kill a little time before the movie and I decided I better pump quick before we went to the movie. I pumped while my hubby ran into the store and picked up a few things he needed. He then got back in the car and we started driving toward the movie theater. I was in the process of getting my milk covered and into the cooler when we went around a corner and all of my milk spilled on my lap! I was soaked and looked like I had wet my pants. Of course since we had been killing time we now had only 15 minutes until the movie started and I was beyond wet. There was no way I was sitting through a movie soaking wet, much less walking in the theater looking like I peed my pants.
So we went back home to find my little guy hungry and not taking the bottle. Since I had just pumped I didn’t have any milk for him and he wasn’t too happy. I mixed him up some cereal and he sadly ate some of it.
So much for date night! We had a great time at dinner and it showed us that life doesn’t go according to plan and when you have kids the plans can change by the minute. Needless to say I was upset that A.) we missed the movie and B.) I wasted my breastmilk!
No need to cry over spilled milk though right? We’ll shoot for the movie another night 🙂
