So, DH has been battling a kidney stone for 3 weeks which has finally passed and we were planning on ‘making up’ for our anniversary this weekend, but all of our family is tied up which means we have no child care. He said we could try for another weekend.
I told him, we’ve been through the ringer the last month and I’ve had to leave our little ones at home with grampa countless times while I made visits to DH in the hospital - it seems the best way to celebrate our marriage is all together as a family. I told him we can always go out on our own later, but I didn’t want to wait for the stars to align for us to go out.
I think we’ll have a good time and we all need a break - us and the kids and I think they need time out with us too.
Have any of you ever had to do this? I know that having that one-on-one time with your spouse is crucial, but we can have that any night after the kids are in bed. Sometimes it seems that going “out” on a date is such an ordeal to arrange that it’s hardly all that enjoyable, not to mention, expensive.
I’m just encountering so many parents lately who seem to keep their kids at arms length and I’m the complete opposite - my kids go with me EVERYWHERE!
