Parenting Escape! (aka: date night)
So between trying to make time for our significant others & having the extra $ to actually go out & do something fun, what does everybody do? Any clever, low cost things that you all do to escape to have "adult" time?
We are very lucky that our 16 yr old is usually willing to babysit our 8 year old. My super wonderful Hubby came up with "Redneck Drive In". We have access to private ground down by the river & only 5 minutes from the house. Portable DVD player, rent a movie or two, snacks & an adult beverage *POOF* our very own drive in. It may sound corny, but it's actually very fun. It's dark, quite, no Mom, he/she's picking on me, Mom, can I have/do this... Even with running the truck on & off for heat, it's a lot cheeper than going to the theater!
So lets hear you parenting excape plans!
