Brining back date night!
I don’t know about you, but with kid’s, date night can be about as rare as running into George Strait at an all night Rave. It just doesn’t happen around here BUT, I think I have stumbled upon a clever little solution to said problem.
It’s called the “Bringing date night back divider” and its super simple.
Head to a restaurant, hand the kids the smart phones and Prop the menus up to form a divider (which you will present to them as their own private arcade booth of course).
Sit back, enjoy the peace and quiet and catch up on some much-needed alone time with the hubby. It’s like the kids aren’t even there.
Sure, you may get a few weird stares and possibly a few more glares from the perfect parents in the room who would rather judge your parenting style than admit that they would do this themselves if they knew they wouldn’t be judged based on it, but let me tell you what. While I may not win the “parent of the year” award, all four of us left that restaurant happier than George Strait after an all night Rave.
It’s amazing what a few quiet moments alone pretending its date night can do for your mood.
We all left the restaurant, went to get ice cream and my husband and I were truly able to enjoy the rest of the evening with the kiddos………………..
Well worth the glares!
