Mr. Mom

My husband played a fabulous role of Mr. Mom tonight. I had a much needed night off from cooking and cleaning. Chris cooked, BBQ and slaved away in the kitchen while I lounged on the couch and caught up on all the latest LA gossip reading People Magazine and the babe slept.
Before I knew it jazz music was filling our house, candles were lit and I was ushered to our backyard for an amazing Italian dinner surrounded by pretty amazing people. My husband and baby girl, of course. Chris made delicious pasta topped with fresh grilled lobster tails and had cheese rolls to dip in balsamic vinegar and oil. Our Italian dinner would not have been complete without our glasses of wine.
Kate loves the outdoors. She cries when we bring her back inside. She is loving these warm summer nights when we bring her high chair outside and enjoy sweet family time over dinner. We played peek-a-boo while daddy cleaned the kitchen and washed the dishes. It was heavenly. So thankful for a night off from the kitchen. It's time I sign off and head back to my $4 glass of wine and bathe our baby girl....

I have to say, I am sort of jealous... no totally jealous! Sounds like a lovely night. Enjoy your husband Nikki!! Relish every moment. I can not wait for a beautiful summer evening to enjoy dinner as a family, even if i have to cook and clean! =)
