Woman enjoys kid-free date night without crippling anxiety

Winston-Salem mom of two, Megan Hogg, was spotted at local restaurant Mozelle’s on Saturday evening with her husband. Shockingly, there was nary a toddler or Cheerio in sight. 

Perhaps it was the sauvignon blanc, or the natural high that comes from finally using a gift card from last Christmas, but Megan appeared uncharacteristically relaxed and carefree. Rumor has it she checked her phone only once for texts from the babysitter.

“It was so strange,” Megan’s husband reported. “She didn’t show me any of the 438 photos she took of our boys that day.”

The mamarazzi even showed up for this rare date night, hoping for some spring style inspo. No such luck. Megan was sporting old jean shorts (American Eagle summer 2016 collection) and a pink t-shirt with an unidentifiable food stain. It did appear that her hair was recently washed, however, which mothers everywhere will recognize as a huge win. 

While it remains unknown how many toddler meltdowns occurred at home during the course of this brief date night, Megan noted that she prefers to keep it that way. “Ignorance is bliss,” she remarked serenely (Editor’s note: a quick investigation into Megan’s Google search history confirmed she does not actually believe this theory).

Was this relaxed evening a fluke, or is our Winston-Salem woman slowly becoming less uptight about her kids? Stay tuned.
