Hubs and I will soon get to attend a couple's conference...aka Marriage Retreat. In the mountains. With a few great friends. It'll be a blast!!
Why do we ditch, I mean, leave our kids and travel alone from time to time?
Because...we believe that we should.
We were Tina and Donald before we became Mom & Dad. These kids are going to grow up and leave us...more than likely...and we don't want to be staring at each other someday and NOT feel like a couple. We still go on dates...just not as many as we would like...childcare ain't cheap! But little getaways here and there are refreshing.
We are a team. We need to be on the same page...a page that cannot be torn apart...by stress or children. What better way to stay connected than to get away as a couple??
If you and your spouse aren't dating or traveling, even for just one night, I want to encourage you to do so.
The kids will survive without you!
And you'll be a better parent when you return!
