Do you have date nights? What would a typical date night look like for you?

We never really had too many date nights. Usually didnt have anyone who could watch the boys.
Then he was too sick to go anywhere.

When we did go it was usually just to dinner and maybe a movie.

Date night? What's that?! We do not ever go out, and when we do Drake is with us. We do not have anyone to watch him, and honestly, I do not trust anyone with him besides me and DH. I always feel like he will not receive the same level of care we give. I know I have to get over that. Well, I will when he is old enough to call me.

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

We've had one date night since Cam has been born. We went for dinner. Once we can go on date nights again, I'd like to add a movie in there! Or since its the summer, something like mini-golfing or bowling etc.

We don't have children yet so we have the luxury of date night whenever we want. Usually we'll go out to dinner but I love our "at home" date nights. We just cuddle on the couch, watch a movie and sometimes get ridiculously cutesy and lovey lol.

I want to go to a blues show. Sounds like fun!

There is a concert in July DH and I really want to go too, but we would have to be gone a day and a half. I am still thinking about it. I really do not know how I feel about my Mom watching Drake for that long.

lol it took me years and 3 kids to get over that!! when Raianna was a baby I never let anyone but my sisters or parents watch her...and one time dh had to bring her to a friend of his (it was actually his senior officers wife) and I about freaked out cause I was working at the time and I couldn't concentrate on work cause I was so worried about her LOL (she was about 9-10 months old at the time?) Yeah it was bad I was not okay with that LOL.....I do not think anyone outside our families watched the girls until ohhh hmmmmm Elyse was a couple of years old.....I am still picky about who watches them and Raianna is 12 haha....

My Mom is not that close with him, like at all. She sees him like a couple times a month and when she does see him she has no interaction with him. Maybe a kiss that he does not even want. It's really bittersweet for me. I want him to like her, but I do not want him to feel rejected by her which in turn leads to a life time of guilt trips. Grr. She makes me so angry.

And, honestly, every person I have come across that sees the way I am with Drake (even family back East) have always commented on how I do not let him CIO and then lecture me about what I should be doing, so that right there is proof that anyone in my family will not treat him how I do. Sucks.

Our "date nights" are at home watching TV after the little one is in bed. We have gone out for dinner and a movie 1 time in the 6 years since my daughter was born.

If you call that a date then yes I have one every night! DH and I try to watch something together every night after Drake is asleep. Just to spend some alone time together.
