Enjoying a Date Night

Last night was hubby and I's first date night without Little Bit. My mom came to our house and watched her so we could go out to dinner. I am SO glad we did that. I don't think I realized how much we needed it, but it was definitely nice and much needed. 

I am so determined to not let having a child change things too much. Obviously things change when you have children and if anything, they change for the better. You see each other in a new way and if you're like me, you fall in love with your baby daddy all over again. But yes, having a baby definitely does adjust your schedules, halter your sex life for six long weeks, and exhaust you a little. Things DO change after having a baby; but they don't have to change US

Having a date night will always be vital in my mind. It may not be every week, but here and there a date night is needed. Stepping away from things refreshes you and somewhat spices things up a bit. You can get dressed up (something I rarely do now) and feel pretty again (despite the saggy pooch I have from just having a baby) and you get to focus on just you two (as long as you left your child with someone you trust). 

I can't wait for when Little Bit can join us on date night and come to our favorite restaurants with us. I can't wait for when we can take her on trips and to the beach for the weekend. And I can't wait for when she comes running through the house to jump in our bed on Saturday mornings. But there will always be a need to have a dinner night with just him, a trip with just us two and a Saturday morning where we have our special time before parent duties call. 

Because let's face it, sometimes a little wine and a little sex is going to be what we all need to feel revitalized and refreshed. I may be a mommy now and him a daddy, but we're still a couple. 

How often do you try to do date night?
