Take Your Partner on a Breakfast Date

Spend time together- Take your partner on weekday a breakfast date.

Getting out at night with little ones can be a challenge.  First there’s bedtime, finding a sitter & then the cost of dinner/movie/sitter on top of all that.  We don’t go out often, but we do need time alone together that's not in front of the television or parallel laptop time.  I work from home, whether it’s blogging, working part-time or being mom/wife. My husband works from home one day a week. With Maisy now in kindergarten & Maren in preschool three mornings a week, we have childcare taken care of in the morning.

My husband asked me to breakfast yesterday morning after I finished morning carpool.  I gladly accepted.  It was a lovely hour of peace that came with food & much needed spouse time.  The bonus is that breakfast is less expensive than dinner & without childcare, it’s a relatively low cost outing.  We decided to not only take this time for ourselves regularly, but to also check in with each other & our relationship too.

We decided to ask each other three questions:

  1. How did you feel loved by me this week?
  2. How could you have felt loved more?
  3. How do you feel you showed love to me this week?

It made for an interesting conversation and also made us really think about each other in a way that often gets left by the wayside when daily life kicks in.  After breakfast we treated ourselves to a little breakfast dessert cupcakes, then we went about our day.

I'm a part-time work from home, full time stay at home mom to two daughters and an Australian Labradoodle puppy. We are enjoying our last year before big girl school, playing with friends, swapping childcare to get the job done and getting crafty when we can fit it in. We live together in a wonderful community that we are truly thankful for and proud to be a part of. It takes a village and this is ours.
