Couple’s Date Night – A Memory of the Past
For most couples with young kids, a date night is just a remnant of a distant past when life didn’t revolve around little minions yet and things were a bit more manageable. If you have little kiddos constantly tagging around, I’m pretty sure that a “Couple’s Date Night” is no longer part of your vocabulary.
It’s been a while since my partner and I had some “quality alone time”. It’s not that we don’t spend time together – in fact, we do, A LOT! But that same time together is spent with the whole family – that includes little kids interrupting every two minutes! HAHA!
So technically, yes, we haven’t had an “exclusive couple’s date night” away from the kids.
Well, that’s not really surprising for a family with a new baby and two big kids who both go to school. I mean, how and where in the world are we going to fit in “date night” in our crazy day-to-day schedule?
On the other hand, I don’t think it’s really impossible if we only make it a priority, right?
So, to resolve this lack of “alone time as a couple”, my partner and I came up with a list of Date Night Ideas for Couples. It’s a mix of romantic, simple, and cheap (FREE) things that we would love to do. A few of them we are already doing (or already did), and some we’re planning to do soon (it’s marked on our calendars! Yaaayyyy!).
