Over the years my husband and I would claim Thursdays as our date night – a night out away from the kids to have complete adult conversation. However our weekly announcement of date night to our kids resulted in “Why can’t we go?”, “We never get to go with you!” , “What time will you be home?”, “What do we have to eat for dinner?” with the continued begging and pleading of us to cancel our weekly date night. However as the mom and dad who are also a husband and wife we know the importance of taking time for just the two of us. SO how do we keep the kids happy and end the kids attempt to veto our date nights?
One answer we came up with is using this fun idea from The Dating Divas who created a fun kids activity package to leave with your kids as you take time out for a date night. Print out the free label, place it on a large envelope then add in a fun activity that your kids will enjoy doing while you are out on your date night.
