“My hubby surprised me with a romantic date night in the bathroom! He ran a bubble bath with rose petals. Lit candles. Had wine chilling in the sink … And that’s all I can tell you about that night since this is a G-rated site!”—Yolanda
“One of our best “date nights’ ever was when we put the kids to bed early, and drank chocolate martinis in bed while listening to Norah Jones. How romantic!”—S. Flynn
“Usually, we go to our favorite trendy restaurant and eat dinner uninterrupted … On other weekend nights, since both our sons go to bed around 8 PM, we give each other body massages which lead to a lot of cuddling afterward!”—Ratmama
It's Fun to Stay at the...
“We are thankful for the local YMCA. Twice a month, they have Date Night and Parent’s Night Out! We know our daughter is having fun and we get much needed time alone. We usually go out to get a drink and dinner. (But you could just go back home!)”—Micki
“I’m a SAHM. I do mystery shopping on the side and save all of the money that I make. When there is enough saved, we get a babysitter and spend the night at a bed and breakfast. It’s a great way to reconnect and relax!”—Mrs. Clark
A Grrreat Date
“Once a week my mom and dad take our son to their house so we can have date night! We got an interesting book called 101 Nights of GRRREAT Sex. This book has sealed pages for both men and women … This has added some excitement to our relationship…”—SAHM of 1
“When we need some time together, we’ll put the kids to bed early, share a bottle of wine, and talk. It’s so good to be able to reconnect when things get crazy with kids, work, and life! And usually, the wine puts us both in a romantic mood!”—Ellen S.
“My husband and I are very outdoorsy. While I’m putting the kids to bed, he’s in the backyard putting up the tent. Once the kids are in dreamland, I meet him out there with wine, massage oils, and some finger foods.”—Lauren
“My most romantic date was when I set up a very beautiful candlelit dinner—in the backyard! The weather was perfect. The food divine. Wine. The kids? Inside with the sitter. Get creative with date night, ladies!”—Amanda
“Well, I used to make little coupons and give them to my spouse (they had ‘good for one back massage, anytime’). And, well, they get more creative. Randomly on a date night stick them up around the house and make them lead to something special.”—Caity
