Going out for a date night is a rare treat for us. Our family is not that close and I'm not comfortable having someone Monkey doesn't really know take care of him. So, we have to be creative when it comes to making a date night at home feel a bit different than every other night of the week.
Our new favourite thing is to do is order takeaway food one night of the weekend. I keep leftovers from the week on hand so Monkey has a good (and easy) meal, and then once he's sleeping soundly, we treat ourselves to a meal that we can enjoy at our own leisurely pace. Light some candles, open a nice bottle of wine and voilà, we have a perfect date night at home!
