How do you have a date night when you really can't go out and have fun?

We never get time alone cause we always have my baby but tonight we put him in his highchair and made chocolate covered strawberries and slow danced in our kichen. It was sooo much fun and so romantic! Our son thought it was so funny and was rocking back and forth and giggling. We will finish what we started tonight when little man goes to sleep :)

  • that IS a great idea. There are lots of things you can do at your own house when you have little people and can't go out. Put them to bed and make popcorn and watch a movie! Sit on your porch or deck, drink tea and hold hands! Sit at your kitchen table and write each other a love letter!

  • Aw that sounds like a perfect date even with your baby there! You can always plan something for when the baby goes to bed.

  • Even back in the days where we were living paycheck to paycheck and our son was small.. We would do "date night" at home 1-2 times a week (most often 1.. but we would shoot for 2... lol).. We had: picnics in the living room, candlight dinners, we would buy special treats and enjoy them together late at night, we would watch a movie... we did all sorts of things.. And even now, 25 years married, have the ability to go out whenever we want no small child at home any longer, we still do those things. Just because we enjoy them and that type of time together so much.

  • Sounds like you two had fun including the little one. We do things together as well in the house because we can't always get out like many people with small children.

  • well sounds like you two are on the right track and are creative enough to just work out what you can spontaneously...

  • Well I was on here because my hubby was putting our son down and I didn't have anything better to do to pass the time. Thank you ladies for all you comments and answers!

  • My question is what are you doing on here? If it was so romantic and fun you should be snuggling up with your SO, not sitting on here... JMO
