Couple book babysitter so they can spend whole evening looking at photos of their children

A COUPLE have hired a babysitter so they can spend a rare evening alone together looking at photographs of their kids. 

Tom and Sophie Booker booked a night away from the children in order to sit in a pub scrolling through the last seven years’ worth of images on their iPad.

Sophie said: “It’s the first night we’ve had away on our own since November last year, so we got all dressed up, had a fancy meal and two bottles of wine, and obsessively went on about the kids.

“We started by reviewing recent photos, then remembered a classic photo of Ruby in my sunglasses from 2013. A tiny baby’s head with massive sunglasses! Priceless!

“After that we started comparing them as babies, then going through our holidays summer by summer to see how much they’d grown, then we moved on the Christmases.

“Probably the highlight of the night was when we found a video of Emilia eating a lemon! Her little face! Even the waiter enjoyed that one.

“By the end we’d scrolled right back to the day she was born, and I’m not afraid to say we were both in tears.

“It was a cracking night.”
