It's not often that we enjoy a date night, one that is out of the house that is.
I don't have babysitters lined up, or family within driving distance. In fact, aside from when we've been in Australia, the little ones have never stayed with anyone other than their big brother, their dad, or us. They are also with us 95% of the time, so it makes date nights near impossible, which means that we often have date nights (or date days) at home. These normally happen when the kids are upstairs in the loft playing video games, watching a movie, or are tucked up in bed for the night.
It's important for us to set aside a few hours as often as possible that is just for us, to spend quality time connecting. We light a fire, grab a blanket, and watch some of our favorite television shows, or a movie, and enjoy indulgent snacks that we know the kids won't steal from us.
