Take extra care with your appearance today. If your morning is too hectic, primp while the babies sleep in the afternoon. Slip into a fetching frock, don a pair of pretty pumps, do your hair and make-up, and spritz on a bit of perfume. Then hit your husband with your best flirty look when he walks in the door.
Today's challenge was perfectly timed to coincide with a firm-sponsored client event. We went to the Wyly Theater in Dallas to see To Kill a Mockingbird. I bought a new dress for the occasion, dug out my favorite stilletos, and spritzed on just a tiny whiff of Chanel No. 5. I haven't felt so pretty and pulled together since before I got pregnant with the twins. Ben looked great too in my favorite suit and the sharp-looking glasses I helped him pick out last year, but never get to see him in. We had a great time. I met several people I have mutual connections with and really enjoyed talking with them. It was the first time since my mom stayed with us that we left all three kids to go out. I think this was the success I needed to finally hire a regular babysitter.
