Hubby and I actually scheduled a babysitter and went on a date tonight. Woo-hoo! It's been WAY too long. Why is it that when we become parents, we tend to put our needs on a shelf? We were married six years before our daughter came along. During that time, we enjoyed going out...to concerts, plays, movies. Of course, at the time we took it for granted. Now those special times alone...doing something just for us...are priceless and refreshing. They go a long way toward helping us refocus on each other...not just as dad and mom...but as husband and wife. Everyday life can disconnect us from the ones we love. Nights like tonight are good for reconnecting.
