I got a sitter, one that the kids love, and went with some fellow moms to a movie. I wasn’t feeling that great (got the achy, flu-like symptoms, with chills) but Pete suggested I go anyway (in his words, “suck it up and go”) as I probably needed the break.
And I am so glad I did! A mom I only met a couple times, and who lives on my street, picked me up, and we had a fun conversation in the car on the way down. Then at the restaurant, I met a few more moms, women I don’t know, and it was really nice.
We saw Juno. Such a cute movie. It didn’t end how I expected, and I liked that! The lead actress was phenomenal. And that guy from The Office (US version) was in the opening scenes…wish he had a bigger role.
The kids were great. As I was leaving, Anju had taken a book up to the sitter and was standing there, holding the book out to her to read. So cute. Said “bye” as I walked out.
