Date Night

[deleted account] ( 4 moms have responded )

For those of you mothers who think they have no time for their spouse.... How do you keep your marriage "fresh" while still being able to take care of the baby and everything else the house calls for. Any Cheap date night Ideas that we may be able to do for a few hours. My daughter is 6 months old and does not like to be away from me for too long.

We live far away from family and never really felt comfortable leaving DS with anyone, but we realized that we did need that time to ourselves so we started having a young gal (19yrs) come over when DS went to bed 7:30pm and then we would leave for a night of dinner/movies or bowling, walking, etc.   It was a late night for us, but definitely worth it!

Do you or your parent's family live near you? We take our son over to Grandma's house or send him down to Nana's house for the weekend. He loves both of them and loves being at their house. He loved being with me when he was really little (he is 23 months now) - and I didn't want him to have a babysitter, but I was confortable enough to send him to Grandma's/Nana's since I knew that he knew who they were and that they would take good care of him. It was good for him as well to know that he would be ok without me. That is true, you don't have to leave the house to have a nice date. My hubby brings home movies from the library and that is what we do for our dates once my son goes to bed.

My husband and go out for a cheap dinner and movie. Often we go to the mall just so we can walk and talk. I try to get all of my housework done during my son's nap. That way I can devote my time to my husband once our son goes to bed. You don't have to physically leave the house to have a date. Our best dates have been at home. Be creative and you can have a very special evening!
