So, when you hit a big anniversary, like 10 years, you really should go out and party, right? Well, let me tell you, we PARTIED like nothing else! That's right... I got all dressed up in my sandals, old shabby blue capri's, a pink t-shirt, my big ol' gray sweatshirt, no makeup and a sloppy pony tail on the top of my head. Hubby wore his work clothes. And then... we took the kids and went through the drive through at Wendy's! WOOHOOO!! Isn't that the coolest 10th anniversary celebration you've ever heard of?? We are so awesome...
Actually, next week we will probably try to go somewhere nice... we didn't go out last night because babysitters are horridly expensive. The cheap sitters are anywhere from $2-4 per kid, per hour. So, if we go to dinner and a movie, we'll say 4 hours out, we're looking at $24-48 just for a sitter! There are others that are $5-8 per kid, per hour. I know there are some that charge more than that, but we don't know any. But, next week Alan's parents will be here... and they usually take the kids for one evening so that we can get out. So, we will probably celebrate next Friday at the Cheesecake Factory followed by the new National Treasure movie!
Wait... I'm just wondering something...how come I don't make $2-8 per hour for taking care of my kids? Man... we'd be raking it in since the mom stuff is a 24 hour thing! Let's see... if I was making the minimum $2 per hour, per kid that would be $144 a day. Which is $1008 a week... which is about $4032 a month... hmm... let's see... 52 weeks in a year... times $1008 per week... $52,416. And that's at the minimum of $2 per hour per kid! If it was $8... well, that's $209,664! Maybe I need to join a union for moms. I am SERIOUSLY underpaid!
