Dates with your kids!

I am stealing this idea from my daughter.  :)  You know how important it is for you to have a date night with your husband, right?  Well, my daughter and her husband also have regular date nights with their kids!  Usually on a weeknight, they each take either their son or daughter out for an hour or so and just have fun with them.  That might mean an ice cream cone at the ice cream parlor or a walk in the mall or a special library trip.   These aren't elaborate or expensive outings but by doing them regularly, they guarantee needed one on one time with their children.

My daughter has found that her son shares more of the things going on in his life with her while they are on a "date" than at home.  No distractions, no interruptions, just undivided attention for an hour each week.  And my granddaughter loves her daddy and feels so special when she has him to herself.  What a great bonding time!

Wish I'd done it when my kids were at home!
