Top Date-Night Ideas for Busy Mothers

Moms are everyday superheroes. Raising a child is a full-time profession, and many moms need to juggle that job with a career of their own to support their family. Between your child and your work, you might find that you have no time for yourself, much less for you and your partner. Letting the romance in your relationship die is not something anyone wants, which is why you need to schedule it in. Make your relationship a priority – at least for one evening. Once you have that date night scheduled, fill it with any of these amazing date-night ideas:

  1. Dinner and a Show
One of the most romantic things a couple can do is go to dinner and then to a show. The reason why this date is especially perfect for busy moms is that it allows you to have quality time with your hubby, and then enjoy and relax while you watch a live performance. To make the most out of this date idea, get a subscription to see multiple Broadway shows so you plan many date nights of the future.  

  1. Dancing
Sometimes, you just need to let down your hair. This date is great for the new moms who loved the party scene, or even moms who just enjoy dancing with their partner. Whatever kind of dancing and music you are interested in, you’ll be able to find it at a club or event near you. Dancing together is great for your health and for your relationship.

  1. Take a Class Together
A couple that learns together, stays together. Learn something new that you are both interested in and benefit from the new stimulus and from the bonding. There are many community classes available that occur on a weekly basis so that you can schedule a babysitter for the same time for however many weeks in advance.
  1. The Sleepover
The last suggestion for a perfect date night is not to go out at all. Instead, have a family member or even a friend take your children for a sleepover at theirs. Use this time to pull out all the stops. Make a romantic meal together, have rose petals on the bed, candles lit, music in the air – whatever brings out the romance between you and your partner. Try to put effort into your stay-in dates. You want them to be special, romantic, and you want them to ignite your relationship.

Keep your date night on the same day at the same day, and try to have the same babysitter, and your child will adapt and become accustomed to the new routine. They will be safe, and happy, and you can have your date night without worry. The secret to having a date-night when you are a busy mom is to schedule your dates ahead of time and prioritize that one day. Your children will always come first, but they’ll be in great hands for the few hours you need to keep your relationship strong and healthy.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
