Matthew and I have really been working to make date nights a priority.
Yes, baby-sitters are expensive. (Although, we think we are going to start trading baby-sitting with another couple, which would be awesome!)
Yes, it can be hard to leave the kids with a sitter when we work full-time and our time with them is precious. (But, they are better off when their parents are investing in one another!)
Yes, it is worth it!
Matthew and I both love music and the arts, so our date nights are usually to go see a show or concert. Live events are a splurge we both find worth it.
Last month we went and saw Snow White and the Huntsman with another couple. It was so nice having adult conversation about topics other than “please eat your chicken” and “no, you can’t have three cookies” and holding hands in the movie theater.
This month we are going see Kristen Chenoweth! I was so thankful that tickets were on Groupon for 50% off. (Tip: sign up for sites like Groupon, Living Social and Mamapedia for great last minute local event deals.)
What is your favorite kind of date night?
