I heard once before that your spouse should come before the kids. But after having 2 kids, I realize how difficult it is to put your partner first. Little ones are just so needy and it’s easy to think that your significant other doesn’t need your immediate attention.
But sometimes I ask myself, that if we constantly put the kids first and then they grow up and leave for college, will we still know each other after the kids have left? So we’ve tried to make it a point to make some time for each other, whether it be staying home and watching a movie after the kids go to bed, OR actually get dressed nicely, put on some makeup and go out somewhere when one of our parents are available to babysit.
We got that opportunity last night! For my restaurant review, go here.
It also helps to just go out and not be stuck in the house as a reminder that you are more that just parents. Break out that smokey eye, those hoops earrings, and that leather jacket that you spent an arm and a leg on cuz parents, you deserve it! Also… date night is just not complete without going to Target after 😉
