Date nights seem impossible at times. Sometimes, being a parent means we forget about finding time for ourselves or making sure we connect with our significant others.
Sometimes, we have to try a little harder to find time and make plans to recharge our parenting energy. Date nights are a breath of fresh air, like a walk on the beach during the summer.
One of the best ways to have a date night-in is to play a board game. And, one of the best board games is Ticket to Ride. Let me start off by saying Meghan hasn’t always been into board games, but a game like Ticket to Ride is one of the main reasons we will spend time at the dinner table during our date nights.
Other Date Night Ideas
1-Hour Babysitter: Hire a babysitter so you, your significant other, or both of you can step away and focus on yourselves. Go for a quick run or walk around the neighborhood. You can also step out back for a more intimate conversation. So, grab your beverage of choice and enjoy the alone time knowing your kids are okay and only a few feet away.
Extended Weekend: Whether it be in-laws or close friends, ask for an overnight when you’re feeling stressed. Let your kids enjoy their time over at the grandparents’ house. A night without worry will make you feel as if you’ve had an extended stay at a five-star hotel.
