Making a Date

I know what all the blogs, parenting magazines and other “experts” say about dating your spouse after kids. It’s necessary. It’s important. It makes a difference. I get that. They’re right. I mean, I was probably able to complete about 4 sentences to A all day today. Small children are not great for conversation. Or thinking. Not to mention, they repeat everything you say, so even if you can complete a thought, be sure that it is one that you don’t mind them repeating to everyone and anyone.

So I get it, we need to make time for ourselves and each other. But you know what else I need to make time for? SLEEP. Laundry. Blogging. Meal planning. SLEEP. Reading a book (allegedly). Grocery shopping. We’ve joked before that we should ask the babysitter to watch the kids while we sleep instead of going out. We’ve never done it, but don’t think we haven’t thought really seriously about it.

It is fun to go out. To have conversation. Go to places that kids can’t go or eat a meal after 5:30pm. But we can’t go out every weekend, both because of schedules and because babysitters aren’t cheap. So sometimes a date looks like tonight. Frozen pizza, beer, a beagle on the bed and a random movie on the tv. It’s not sushi at Shiro’s or even a movie at Cinebarre, but we’re making time to be together and maybe even finish a few sentences or two.

  1. We haven’t had a date night in ages. My husband’s work schedule is very hectic and most days we only see him passing. I keep reminding myself that it won’t be like always though.

  2. My husband and I do date night at home every Friday night. I don’t think you have to leave the house to date, you just need to set aside time to be alone together connecting. We’ve been doing it for almost 5 years and we still look forward to it every Friday. Just eating dinner without the kids is nice, even if I cooked it.

  3. I agree that eating dinner without the kids can be a luxury. I love our family dinners, but enjoying the quiet that is dinner after the kids are in bed is pretty special too.
