Enough Time Moms: I’m Dating My Husband, Again


Date night! Does the thought of going out, alone, with your spouse, cross your mind? Sure it does! Remember, we all used to do it. Dating. The getting dressed up. Going to a movie, a play, dancing. Oh, nostalgia!

After kids though, about the only time for date night is somewhere between 2 and 4 am. So, does sleep count? Why is it that we can plan a playdate with the deft touch of a ninja yet when it comes to date night it’s as if we’re unable to even read a calendar?

I am the featured blogger on Enough Time Moms today and I’d love if you’d share your thoughts on date night!

Me too, me too! We have been scheduling one weekend night out each weekend. Thankfully we have a wonderful babysitter and we have resurrected our love for going to the movies together! Yay for date night!

Kate, you’re such an inspiration! It’s definitely a habit worth taking time for AND it shows the kids the importance of the relationship between husband and wife.

Thank you for visiting!

Hey, I can totally relate! It doesn’t help that my wife and I (currently) work (offline) jobs where we have split schedules — one works days and the other works evenings. (Daycare is expensive, and besides, it’s better for one of us to be with the kid(s) anyway). Between that, and no longer having family close by, we don’t get many evenings to ourselves.

We’re just a year (or two) away from the older one being able to watch the younger one (who will be in school by then as well, I hope) so we can overlap our schedules a bit more and have a night to spend with each other from time to time doing “grown up” things.

Date nights should happen more often! I’m all for them 😀

Grady, wow, split schedules? That’s gotta be tough. I’m with you on the importance of being with the kids and not sending them to daycare if it’s something the family can manage.

I hope you can sneak a date night in soon!
