We are really lucky to have family near by so once or twice a month we are able to get out on a date. But in between we try to have what we call "stay dates." We put little miss down, stay in our dress clothes from the day and try to do something special, like cook dinner together or play board games or sometimes grab a Redbox movie.
This weekend I picked up a few cupcakes from our favorite little place and after eating a very healthy dinner (fish and steamed veggies) we tried a small slice of each one and caught up on each other's week. It was so fun! And we have plenty of cupcake left to enjoy or share.
What kind of things do you do to connect when there's no babysitter?
