don't get me wrong...i'm totally happy to hand snacks/drinks/toys/binkies to the backseat 99% of the time...but when the day approaches that i'm driving in my car kid-free, sipping my coffee...it's that sweet sweet sound of silence i relish.
so anyway...yesterday was that day for me.
my studly farmer took kaye and sawyer all day long. as i was getting my hair done the hair stylist asked me if i was able to relax or if i was constantly thinking there was something i needed to get done. i said, "excuse me? did you say something?" because guess what...i was in the zone. the karli zone. and that's a zone i want to go back to...when i need another little break.
it's absolutely fantastic to know that i can leave my girls with my farmer and they can get a break from me...and i can get a little break from the farm. that farmer of mine, he's a rare breed, friends.
after my day of relaxation, my farmer dropped off our girls with a sweet family that watches kaye for us on occasion. this was their first time with sawyer, so i was a little nervous. not because i didn't think they could handle both kaye and sawyer (they have four kids themselves). and not because i thought sawyer would be too tough to handle...but just because i'm a mom and that's what we do, right?
so my farmer drove into the big city to meet up with me for a delicious dinner. we ate sushi, drank a cocktail, and indulged in some ice cream. it was just so fun to be on a date with my hot hot farmer. i mean...he's super smokin'. he's even more smokin' when we go on a random tuesday night date.
a big thank you to my farmer. the sweetest, cutest, kindest farmer in all the land of farmers.
