There was a major milestone at our house last night.
We left the house...without Lucy.
Some friends of mine from high school got together in Solana Beach after Lucy's bedtime, so my parents came over and made sure she was sleeping okay while we hung out...sans our daughter.
It felt surprisingly normal.
Of course, she went to bed super early (not because I wanted her to, just because she was out of her mind tired) and then woke up at 9, 1, 3, and 6. Not the most auspicious night.
Luckily, I was able to at least doze through her nursing and felt okay this morning.
It felt good to be able to have a calm outing.
