Balancing Act- Date Night

Ah date night. Almost non-existant in our house. Twice a year guareenteed because kids can't go Christmas and Easter shopping with you. But you know that date night does not mean that you have to leave the house, don't you? You can watch a movie together after you put the kids to bed. You can serve the kids in the kitchen and set the dining room table (if you have one- otherwise serve them before you sit down so that they will be done) and have dinner together. Now if you just laughed and thought “yeah right, that's going to happen”- remember that I have 4 kids. I know that there will be interruptions and that the likely hood of staying awake through an entire movie after you put the kids to bed is slim to none, but try it. It may work. Or you may find something else that works for you. The point is to remember that you need couple time and to make it happen deliberately every once in a while. I'm not even saying once a week or once a month- just whenever you can.
