Last week I was chatting with one of the other moms at Hannah's school. She was venting to me about how nervous she was to be leaving her kids with a babysitter that night. I asked her if it was her first time leaving them with this sitter and she said it was the first time she had left them with ANY sitter. I paused as I comprehended what that meant. And then I asked her, "Is this the FIRST time in 4 and a half years that you've gone out without your kids?".
