The title of this post should totally be on SHIT MOMS SAY!
Well ... okay, it should be on SHIT DADS SAY too.
Last week, my hubby and I realized we'd been so caught up in kids, work, school (well, my school) and LIFE, we kinda forgot each other. Crazy how you can live with someone, see them everyday, but forget how important your time together really is.
We both decided that we needed a date night - and it honestly made my day. My week!
I have this mommy guilt thing where I feel badly for being away at work / school all week long so going out on the weekend isn't a routine thing...
But, after a chat with my hubs we quickly realized that we needed some time, just for us. We need to be happy together to have a strong marriage, and to be good parents to our kids, so we are going to really work at carving out a little more time just for us.
We went to Milestones for dinner - I snagged us a fabulous corner table in the lounge. We sat beside each other (not across!) ... like old times, prior to 3 kids ; ) Awww. Date Night.
It was so much fun - afterwards, we texted the babysitter, realized the kids were still awake & decided to head over to our friends' new pub/restaurant. (Yes, that's what I said. I know, right?)
We saw a lot of people we know & even got to hang out with my cousin and his adorable girlfriend.
It was definitely a much-needed rekindle.
Kinda like that, I fell in love all over again feeling that we needed : )
That, the butterflies in your stomach feeling.
So mommas & daddies, take heed - take your beloved spouse out on a date.
You need it, she/he needs it ... and your relationship needs it.
Thanks to my wonderful hubby for a wonderful night. We are already planning our next date ... I already have butterflies already : )
