You know it’s a good date when you can’t stop singing, “Now is the time to seize the day!”
We like to give each other dates for Christmas, and sometimes that means a more expensive set of tickets to a concert, sporting event, or play. Last Christmas I gifted Jacob tickets to see one of our favorite musicals- Newsies! At the time I was very pregnant, I had no idea what our budget would look like eight months into having a child (I thought we may be doing free dates only), and I knew it may be a stretch to go on a date for that long away from a nursing baby, but decided then and there no matter where we were in life, this date would be good for us.
This was our first date where we were away for longer than four hours, and excited was an understatement- I was downright giddy for the special time like the good-ol-days of dating where we could have an entire evening.
Went went out for a fancy meal together before the play.



I’d also like to mention I purposefully found the item in my closet that was the least nursing friendly item I own and I intentionally wore it. It was fantastic!

And then we headed out to fulfill childhood dreams of seeing Newsies. I actually didn’t see the movie until 聽a year ago, but still grew up listening to the songs. I guess I felt like I owed it to my former teen self, I cheated her out of so many teen heart-throbs that she never knew existed. She deserved to go see it live and wonder how much more exciting Batman with Christian Bale may have seemed when it was first announced.

The cast was phenomenal! And I’m just so grateful that pregnant Camille had the foresight to think so far ahead and know that an upscale date that would push how long we could stay out was just the thing we would need after eight months of parenthood!

  1. I'm so bummed because I wanted to see this show, but they only open up tickets to season ticket holders at the theater here! They're returning for five shows later this month and I haven't found a way to get tickets yet 馃檨 But it sounds like it was an awesome date!
