Ways you can have a special Valentines day and be parents at the same time.

I am a mom of three beautiful children. Although I love being a mommy I have to remember that I was a wife first. Valentine’s day is nearing and our budget is really tight. We just moved to this area and I haven’t found someone who I trusted enough to babysit. I spent the past few days trying to think of ways that we can still have a special night and be parents at the same time.



Here is what I came up with:

  1. Fix a picnic in front of the T.V. 
  2. Play a little music and dance! 
  3. Rent a movie and have some snacks. 
  4. Have a candle light dinner. 
  5. Play some board games. 
  6. Take a walk around the block together. 
  7. Write love notes and hide them where your spouse can find them. 
  8. Call in sick and spend a day together. 
  9. Get up early so you can have some alone time before the kids wake up. (Suggested By: Amanda
  10. Go star-gazing together. 
These are only ten ways out of many. Get creative and think hard I am sure you can find a special way to spend some little time together and not have to pay a babysitter.
 I would love to hear from you: What are some ways you get alone time together?
