As new parents, we get so use to carrying the diaper bag, pushing a stroller and doing all those parent things that we almost forget what to do when we don’t have a kid.
It was weird to not be carrying or pushing something. There was no food on the floor or diapers to change. There was just the two of us, and it was fun!
We went out to dinner, saw a movie, spent a day at the Minnesota State Fair and just enjoyed each others company.
We had so much fun that we’re thinking of doing more than once a year.
Lily stayed with Christi’s parents and she had a blast. She missed us, but not in a way that made us feel guilty for leaving.
I think that all parents need to take time and be without the kids every once an a while. So find a babysitter and take the day, or weekend, and just spend it with your significant other. You’ll be glad you did.
