The single greatest barrier standing between couples and a regularly scheduled, totally blissed out date night is the lack of a quality babysitter
Add to that the dread and stress that goes along with trying to find and keep
a truly quality babysitter, and you’ve already got yourself a long list of reasons why date night probably just “isn’t worth the effort.”
Sure, it’s easier
to stay in, put the kids to sleep, and binge watch a Netflix series while eating some chocolate. Just throw on your favorite pair of baggy sweatpants and leap onto the old, familiar couch, and voila – date night here we come.
But is comfort
really what we’re trying to create more of in our love relationships? Are laziness, exhaustion, lack of ambition and untapped creativity really what we want to cultivate?
On some nights - maybe. We’ve all been there, for sure.
But it sure as heck doesn’t stir up any new energy, emotion or romance. These things require continual creativity and action. They require discipline and commitment.
Easy doesn’t translate into extraordinary in any area of life - but this is especially true when it comes to acts of love.
So what’s a family to do?
