Midweek Mommy Tip # 4

Get a babysitter. This is a crucial part in maintaining sanity, especially for all the SAHMS and WAHMS out there!! Make it a monthly/2 monthly/bi-monthly event. Get a babysitter (someone who is capable, that your kids know and that you can totally trust), get dressed up (don't forget the make-up and perfume!) and take your man on a date. Even if it's just to a coffee shop down the road. GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!! Just go and have a coffee/dinner/see a movie/whatever and make a rule not to talk about the kids, laundry, housework, homework, cooking etc etc etc at all. This is incredibly difficult and you'll be shocked to find that for the first 10 minutes of your date you might not have anything to say to the sex muffin sitting accross the table from you. Take a deep breath, be creative and soon you'll be chatting away and you'll remember what it was like when you were wild, free and just a couple. It's fun and most importantly it really does keep that love spark going between you and your man. Have fun!

PS Whatever you do, don't get into an argument. Just for this night, wear your push-up bra, bat your eyelids and say "yes dear" to everything he says (he'll think you've finally come to your senses!). You'll score major points and will probably be ravaged when you get home!

Amen to that! My husband and I do this at least once a month. It's good to keep the spark going!
