Let's talk date nights. My husband and I have weekly date nights. My mom comes over after work and as soon as my husband pulls into the driveway, I am typically at the door waiting like an inmate awaiting the doors to freedom, yeah that's me! As a SAHM I began to feel I NEEDED TO GET OUT and it was important that weekly, my husband and I made it a priority to connect outside of the children. Most couples would probably argue they don’t have time weekly or even bi-weekly but the reality is, we all make time for what we want and actually, how I approached it. Initially, It seemed to be excessive in theory however, I changed my mindset. The only time something is excessive is when it takes away from my morals, ethics and finance and that's what eased my mind.
Many mama’s have hit me up asking how we configure date night into our budget and out lifestyle and I am here to give you the scoop so that you can do the same.
Picking A Night
Our date night was solely selected by the availability of my mom ( I would suggest you do the same). Selecting a day that's easier for the person holding down the fort is important. Once that day of the week was selected, we added it to our calendar.
