One different night a week, I get to go out and sit at Starbucks, write, read, send emails, toodle around Target, or maybe hang out with Kristin and watch movies like Bridget Jones' Diary while drinking white russians.
Trent has been having his nights out for a while now and I recently asserted myself and decided I wanted one too. He said "Well duh! Go for it!" This is actually my first one and I have been excited about it allllllll day. Let's face it folks, parenting is a big job, especially parenting babies and every big job needs breaks sometimes. For your sanity. For variety. For getting out of the dang house sometimes.
Parents, do you get enough breaks? Do you get any? Do you need to establish a Parent's Night Off program in your household? Give it a try. So far so good for us.
