If You Give a Mama a Night Out...

If you give a mama a night out, she might just take you up on it.

She'll pick out a dress that's just perfect and hang it up in anticipation of an evening out with her Love. She'll need to find some shoes to go with it. She'll find some beautiful heels her own mommy bought for her years ago.

Seeing the shoes will remind her of jewelry, the finishing touch.  She'll look through hers, finding ones that sparks memories of a sweet honeymoon, her own rehearsal dinner, baby shower treasures.  
At last, the pair of dangling ones will do.
She'll arrange for a babysitter, or two.  The day will begin with littles climbing into bed with hopes of cartoons and cuddles.  On to syrupy pancakes and milk in chilled glasses.  She'll dress the oldest for her soccer game, load up all the lovelies for a morning of cheering and playing.  Home for more outside fun, side walk chalk masterpieces, and the best bubbles ever blown.  She'll crank out PB&J's like a champion, nurse the littlest babe, and then tuck little sun-kissed bodies into beds for naps.

Let the transformation begin.

{Jill and Stephen were married...and it was lovely and beautiful!}
And she beams with joy because the night belongs to her and her husband, and many friends all going through the same transformation cycle of a day.
She'll smile and soak up every minute of the evening, in her purple dress.
The next morning she'll see her dress on the closet floor...seeing the dress will remind her of the night out with her hubby and friends.
And chances are if you give a mama a night out, she might just take you up on it!
