Since living in Liverpool Liam and I hadn’t had a date night in OVER 6 MONTHS.
Our lives consisted in just looking after the children day in day out and we didn’t make time for ourselves as a couple. It certainly took a bit of a toll on us.
As much as we loved spending time with the children it’s important for our relationship to spend time together just me and him, but it wasn’t possible when we lived there.
Since moving back to Wales we’ve been out a lot more and realised just how much we had actually missed it.
The new Avengers movie (Infinity War Part 1) came out on Friday and Liam is a massive fan. I must say so myself that they are pretty cool films. He got all hyped up wanting to go to watch it, so we thought we would go to see it as our first date night in months.
At first I was quite nervous about leaving little Kiiara for 2 and a half hours, but I knew the girls would be safe with their Auntie Lisa – she’s been a proper star, and to be honest I wouldn’t know what I’d do without her.
We had everything sorted ready to go including having pumped, sterilised the bottles and getting Aurora ready and into bed. It finally was time to head off and the girls were both content. Kiiara was still awake but she had a feed before we left and had enough milk just incase she got hungry in-between.
It’s a strange feeling being without the kids, even though it was only for a short while. We felt like we we’re forgetting something but it was nice to be able to hold hands instead of always pushing prams.
We arrived at the cinema, got our ‘Tango Ice Blast‘ and popcorn, and made our way to the screening. It felt like forever before the film started.
We sat watching the film and everything seemed fine until I got this strange feeling come over me. At first I thought it was worry, but I’d call it mother’s intuition. I just knew that Kiiara wasn’t settling and that she was crying despite having enough milk and had been tired when I left. I mentioned it to Liam and he said I’m sure she’s fine, but not 5 minutes later I got a text from Lisa saying Kiiara was crying and Aurora was up crying asking for Mummy and Daddy too.
Kiiara just wouldn’t take the bottle. I suggested changing the teat size just incase it was slow but still no success – she just wasn’t a happy bunny. The film had nearly finished so we headed home straight after. Kiiara must have finally settled to sleep within the last 5 minutes before we got home.
It honestly truly amazes me how I knew she wasn’t settling despite being so far away from her. The bond between a Mother and their child is an amazing thing and I feel blessed to feel that connection. To top it off though, the film was completely awesome! (No spoilers, I promise!)
It was nice to be able to spend time with the Mr and be able to have couple time. It certainly does a relationship good to take some time out together.
