We have the best arrangement with our friends/neighbors. We get a date night with FREE BABYSITTING every other week. They have 2 girls the same ages as ours so we alternate weeks that we watch each others’ kids.
Date nights are more vital than you realize
It’s so easy to get caught up in the busy every day. And even easier to get distracted by taking care of the kids needs, the house chores, cooking, school, showering and all else (these are obviously important things, they mean you’re a good paren ^_^ ) After a bit you don’t realize how all these things start to disconnect you from your courtship.
And they don’t have to be huge events. Our favorite dates have been the simple ones. Tonight we did a Costco run, then went to our new fav place, then got a snow cone to split. Simple.
