The dinner was great, albeit LOOONG. 6 mommies at one table leads to lots and lots and lots of talking. Which was great and a needed change of pace. As we are sharing war stories (read: poop, vomit, and pumping stories) one of the women asked us if we remembered that episode of Seinfeld where Elaine is buying up all the sponges because they are being discontinued - she used the term "sponge-worthy" as in, "do I want to use one of my remaining sponges on this guy??" Anyway, our mommy friend said that she and her husband use the same thought process, only applied to having a night out and hiring a sitter. Would this "event" be worth finding and paying a sitter? Maybe. Maybe not.
Of course, that night was sitter-worthy. Again, melted cheese and chocolate - what more do I have to say? But there are some things that don't make the cut so easily, at least not for me.
- running errands alone: NEVER sitter-worthy
- doctor appointment: NOT sitter-worthy
- emergency doctor visit: sitter-worthy
- shopping: NOT sitter-worthy
- date night with the hubs: sitter-worthy
- club meeting (mom's group, book club, etc.): NOT sitter-worthy
- gym/exercising: NOT sitter-worthy
