For the past couple of months, Mr. P & I have gone out on "day dates" almost every Saturday. I don't yet feel comfortable leaving the kids with anyone in the evenings, as I'm still nursing Rainer and evenings can be 'delicate' with little people.
So, off we go each Saturday around 10:30 in the morning, usually to a favorite coffee shop to enjoy the free wifi and sip our drinks leisurely, feet propped up & all. Occasionally, we will also pack our running gear and go for a quick 3 miler together, like we used to in our early days of dating and marriage. When our tummies begin to rumble, we settle on a nearby eatery and enjoy an early lunch. Nothing is really planned; it's just what we feel like doing in the moment, and it is sweet.
I can't tell you how refreshed we feel by 2pm when we pull back into our garage. There is something about a few hours of adult time that makes those little people so much sweeter, cuter, loveable.
Happy weekend! xo
