When my kids were little, I trained them to stay in bed by telling them that the evening was ‘mommy & daddy’ time and we needed to have this time to help keep our marriage strong. They liked the idea of ‘helping’ us in our marriage. And it worked. The kids remained in bed unless there was an emergency. This was our ‘date’ a lot of the time. Sometimes we’d go out – or my husband would feed the kids early and cook us a later dinner – he is a fantastic cook! But, most of the time, it was a quiet evening at home watching something o TV (I know there are some against watching TV together instead of ‘talking’ – but we’ve been happily married for 19 years now – we both work from home and I homeschool the kids – and we are still MADLY in love – like seriously sappy and mushy – so, clearly it works for us).
So…that’s why I chose Joy’s post, Why It’s Important to Date Your Husband, as my feature this week. I appreciate that she didn’t say there was only one way to date your hubby – in fact, I think it is a state of the heart that comes into play here, too. But she gave a few suggestions that included staying at home. And, you know what?? Those at-home dates make getting to the bedroom quicker;) Right?
Joy, please be sure to grab this “I’ve Been Featured” image below and add it, with a link to this page, to your post so that your readers can celebrate with you!
