This is not healthy for either of us. This year we decided to have monthly date nights and we managed a few before finding it hard to fit in, and also it felt like we were constantly bugging our babysitters for help!
So when Mr G had a super busy June and I realised we were having a baby like tomorrow - I organised a surprise night out in the city!
Cue 5 star hotel, Nana babysitting Miss S and a full 24 hours to talk about adult things!
We arrived to have our car valet parked and then we were upgraded to a suite! I have always wanted to hear "we have upgraded you today".
Upon entering the suite (which literally was bigger than our house!), soft music was playing, candles were everywhere, rose petals scattered and canapes were waiting whilst the Moet was chilling on ice!
It's not something we can do all the time (our credit limit wouldn't let us!) but it was seriously needed.
I personally think it's extremely important that you keep your relationship alive by doing little things like this. Not only for our sanity but for your little ones to see.
What do you do to keep your relationship in tip top shape? How do you demonstrate a healthy relationship to your kiddies?
