Day 22-10:48 pm: This evening my hubbie and I went to a wedding. But, kids weren’t invited. So, my parents got a hotel room at the hotel the wedding was at and I called my sister to come babysit. I know my toddler would be in good hands, and she would be at the same hotel I was at, but I was still nervous.
One thing I’ve learned about being a mom who practices attachment parenting is that it’s not easy to hire a babysitter.
But, I did it anyway. And guess what….we had fun!
Everyone was fine. My toddler had fun, and mom and dad got to have a night to just be grown ups again. Of course I was checking my phone all night and texting my sister (until my hubby took my phone and wouldn’t let me have it back), but after a glass of wine I was able to relax a little and talk to family and dance to the silly band. It was much needed considering we feel like we have a lot on our plate.
Around 9:00 we decided we had enough (after chocolate dessert and tea of course!) and when we went down to get our toddler, she was smiling, happy, and having a great time. It made me feel so much better. The night was a success.
My hubby and I had a great time and she had a great time. Win-win all around.
So I’m going to tell you how important it is to spend some quality time with your significant other. Hire a baby sitter and go out on the town. Have a little fun. Your whole family will benefit from it.
What are some ways you have fun as mom and dad? Let me know in the comments below!
