Well, we finally did it. We left baby with MiL on Sunday and saw Black Swan (we liked it, didn’t love it). It went pretty well. Baby napped most of the time, but was up for an hour or so with MiL. He cried a bit when he figured out we were gone, and refused to be put down or to play while we were gone. So clingy, but not hysterical. Not a terrible first babysitting experience.
We did Sunday as we are going to see a band on Thursday night and are planning to have MiL hang with babes for that (Best Coast, if you’re interested :). I’m a little more anxious about this one as I think he’ll wake up somewhere around 10PM (his norm) and we won’t be there. I doubt she’ll be able to get him back to sleep, so he’ll probably be awake until we get home (probably around 11:30PM). I guess it’s not the end of the world, right? I hope he doesn’t lose it completely since he’ll be tired and all that. This baby stuff is hard!
