“That’s a tough one. I’d have to say April 25 because it’s not too hot and not too cold. All you need is a light jacket.”
(Name that movie!)
There was a time when I might have had an idea of the perfect date. But, somewhere between child number one and child number four, my expectations have changed a bit. It probably has something to do with a severe lack of babysitters.
That doesn’t make spending time with my husband any less important though.
It just means we have to be a little more creative.
We also have to focus on what’s important…each other.
So, if our only opportunity to spend a little time together is enjoying some frozen yogurt and quiet conversation in the car while the babies watch a movie in the backseat and the big kids are at church activities…we’ll take it.
Because “date night” doesn’t have to be elaborate.
“Quality time” doesn’t have to be cute.
It just has to be a priority.
And, after plenty of giving in to the temptation to be too busy or simply too tired, we are trying to take it back. Trying to keep time with each other at the top of our to-do list.
Because, you know what? I love my husband, but when we get to enjoy each other’s company more often, I remember something equally important. I happen to like him, too.
