Our excuse? Getting the kids to sleep is really HAAARD, yo! It would be IMPOSSIBLE for a babysitter or nanny or even grandparent to put them to bed! The world would end if I wasn't here. No no, really...I am that important!!
However, the boys are now asleep by 8:00pm (8:30pm at the latest!) and most of the time they stay asleep, so nothing is stopping us from leaving them in the care of a sitter for a few hours!!
Time to practice being adults again!
So much to see and do! Neighborhood restaurants! Twilight vs. Skyfall! I bet he'd like to see Blue Rodeo (Feb 2)! The symphony! Cavalcade of Lights**!
Have you managed to make date night a reality? If so, where do you go? If not, what is your excuse? If you don't have kids yet - don't talk to me (ha ha - no, sorry)...are you spending your Saturday nights on the town? Or nestled in at home? Because I have this theory that DINKS (dual income, no kids) enjoy staying in more than parents do...but, well...I am only basing it on the fact that I never used to want to go out (such a huge effort)...and now that we have to be home, I am itching to break free!
*I don't think our relationship has suffered at all! I mean, date night is still just the two of us, only in a different setting!
**Bummer - that was tonight!
