Adam and I shared a lunch date the other day and it was so fun that we've decided to try and make it a regular occurrence. We love the idea of going out at night but it's typically just too difficult to manage. Most of the time we can't find a babysitter then sometimes we are struck with how much extra we are going to pay on top of the date in childcare. But typically, we get caught trying to get everyone to bed and having food prepared and bottles ready that when all is said and done, we just stay home. It's probably not the best choice but it's just our current truth. So meeting for lunch was a great way to find time together.
We ate way too much (so worth it!) at Pints and Quarts. We sat at the bar, while chatting and listening to Lauryn Hill (the miseducation album- thank you again, Ps&Qs, one of the only times this week I didn't feel way too old for my environment). We talked about our children without being surrounded by them. Those conversations are the best, when you are able to step away and talk about all the sweet things they've been doing lately.
Then we walked back to our separate cars and on the way took silly pictures, just to prove our existence outside of the house without children.
How do you make time for dates or time alone with your partner? Or better yet how do you make time to just be all-alone - away from work and responsibilities?
