I always talk about how important date night is and a client of mine inspired me to write it out. With the busy-ness of life and family...our marriages and relationships can suffer. When children are born into our world stuff can get all mixed up. We need to show our children how much our other half means to us. Model what a good relationship is supposed to look like by putting them first...yes, before the children! No, I'm not saying neglect the needs of your child - I'm saying, be an example of love and commitment in a world that gives up on family. Show them what a marriage/relationship is really suppose to look like. Here are some reasons why I look so forward to our date nights.
1. Finally! Some uninterupted conversation! We need time alone to talk about family, business, hopes and dreams without a little one needing assistance of some kind. It is a time to make sure we are on the same page.
2. Time without children also gives us a chance to connect. It is really hard to gaze into your loves eyes and really listen to what they are saying with the endless chatter (or in our case, singing) and the constant "MOM" in the background. Besides, I want a turn to hold Daddy's hand.
3. When I ditch my children for an evening (or over night) I come out of it recharged...a better Mom because of it. Absence makes the heart grow fonder...Yes it does. I miss them when I am away and I have so much more love to give when I come home.
4. My girls know that Daddy is important to me. There are some nights they beg for us to stay home but then they realize the importance of our time together.
Make time for your other half. Connect. Work Together. Love. And remember...You are the example they will follow in their own relationships and marriage some day.
