Well, Hello Dr. McHottie!

A very, very special thank you to Missy for dragging her tired self to my house after a long day of work, meeting both of her own children there, and then staying until 9:00 to take care of Sam so that I could go to Scott's faculty recital last night. I know she knows what a night out means and I appreciate her help more than she knows.

Yes! I got to sit through an entire concert without sneaking Sam out to play in the hallway. We've taken him to several concerts and the younger he was, the more interested he was in the music. But then he hit an age where all he wants to do is be on stage with Daddy. For obvious reasons, that's not always practical. The Palmetto Pans concerts are different, of course. Daddy gets to sit with us in the audience AND everyone else is up dancing and being loud. So Sam enjoys those much more. Anyway, all that to say that I didn't want to miss Scott's faculty recital last night and I certainly couldn't take Sam.

So, about last night. I am so thankful I got to attend the recital. The music was great. All the students and faculty that accompanied Scott were awesome. I got to see a lot of friends I don't see often enough. And most importantly, my husband was HOT! Perhaps I was just under the influence of the adrenaline rush that comes from getting out of the house to do grown-up things, perhaps not. Whatever the reason, I SO enjoyed watching him on stage last night. I felt almost giddy like I used to feel in college when he performed. I watch him and listen to him play and my heart almost bursts with pride.

And did I mention how HOT he looked on stage last night?

Every once in a while, I need a reminder that it is ok to spend time away from Sam and just enjoy being with his daddy.

I took a few pictures, but the light was so low that they really didn't come out very well. Maybe I'll have my new camera before the next concert! Here's the best of the worst:

It was not a problem at all. The boys did great, although Carson didn't understand why Mickey Mouse Clubhouse wasn't available to watch after LEs. Can you tell what we normally watch??

And now I can't wait to tease Scott about how HOT he looked last night ;0)

Sam can always come over for a spend the night party or just to hang out!! We'd love to have him over to play while you go out with your HOT husband!!
