Last night my husband and I had the privilege to drop off our boys to my sisters house for a sleepover. Hurray date night out for us ! We drove the boys over and dropped them off .On our way to our favorite sports bar it came up.The big date night no no ..Our kids.Well not actually our kids but dr Seuss and those annoying songs my son likes so much that gets stuck in our heads. It became a half hour conversation over our hard rootbeers . What songs we liked and didn’t like from his shows and I’m pretty sure we spent a good ten minutes talking about Yertle The Turtle.
Naturally then we spent another twenty minutes bragging about how funny/cute our kids are .Eventually we moved off the topic played some triva and then went on with our night.
After browsing alot of articles in the past and a few current the big number 1 rules for date nights are commonly “Don’t talk about your kids”.I’m sorry but really….? How can you have such awesome little people and not have them come up once. Maybe it’s just us but we don’t have any strange rules for date nights and topics that are off limits.I think it’s silly .I understand if that’s ALL you have to talk about or ALL you ever talk about so you may want to mix it up but taking your babies and putting them on a no list just feels wrong .Im not alone in this. My husband has decided the people who are writing these articles must not have children.
My advice is don’t follow those strange top ten dating rules or any of that stuff.Spend time with your spouse and be happy:)Let the conversation go where it wants to go .After all it may be the last time you can complain about Legos all over your floor with a drink in both hands for a while 🙂
