Date night is detrimental to my health. Without it, I become one frantic momma on the edge. I took date night for granted before my children were born, but now, it's a crucial tool my husband uses to maintain my sanity.
A typical date night is the usual, dinner and a movie.
Dinner, because it's important I eat a meal once in awhile, free of hovering children waiting for the opportunity to put their fingers in my food. Why do they have to touch my food? I haven't the slightest clue. They don't put their little fingers in my husband's food...ever.
A movie, because it's a luxury to sit and watch anything from start to finish without explaining what's happening, travel five times to the bathroom, or listen to Rio give us his play by play narration.
"Don't you feel guilty..." people ask, "leaving your children so you can go out?"
My answer is always the same...HELL NO!
