I really think the most unforgettable line in “Princess Bride” is when the minister is droning on and on and finally says in an uptone swing “Wuv…twue wuv….”
So how about your twue wuv? Why am I bringing this up now? Valentine’s Day is not for another month.
And that’s why.
So many couples don’t have a date night simply because they don’t plan it. One thinks the other should do the planning. He doesn’t get a babysitter and she doesn’t make the reservation and well, the date just never happens.
Matt and I try to have a date night at least twice a month out of the house. Sometimes more frequently, sometimes less. Since the baby is nine months old, it is getting easier, but she went on several “dates” with us this year due to time constraints and baby facts (the small issue of feeding her aka nursing.) Really, we both know all the excuses. Hard to find a babysitter (especially for 6 kids), too tired at the end of a long work day, no room in the family schedule…the list goes on.
End the excuses! Here’s a little tip:
Focus on the Family is hosting a wonderful Valentine’s event:
Their motto: Get out, get closer.
This event is a pre-recorded webcast being aired all over the country via local churches and you can even go to their site and find a host church in your area. So what are you waiting for?
