Of course, having children fills your heart with love. You never want to leave your child’s side, nor can you imagine ever having fun without them again! I promise you now, you can have fun without them and it does actually do some good to spend a couple hours away. (As much as you hate it.).
I know full well you can get into a habit of talking in a baby voice, and watching paw patrol and when you have the opportunity to go out to spend some time with your Oh or friends it can feel strange to not have you little one/s there with you.
Michael and I love a good date night. Usually on a Friday. We don’t really care what we do but spending time with each other has really helped our relationship. We even started doing date night with some friends too. This is lovely because as parents we don’t get much time to socialise and with Michael working very long hours it is good to get out for one, and see friends is a bonus.
I have asked 5 people to share things that they would do without their children. Here is what they said!
Claire from This Mummy Rocks says: “Go to the cinema, go and get your hair styled, go for a meal, go bowling, go to laser quest, go to a concert or show, visit old friends, get drunk
Victoria from Healthy Vix says: “Ice skating! Me and the hubby did this last time we were kid free and it was so much fun! Also go to a trampoline park, a walk up a hill to watch the sunset/sunrise, a relaxing meal out or a spa day!”
Beth from Twinderelmo says: “Go out to a restaurant and enjoy a hot meal without having to share or take a little person to the toilet after your first mouthful.”
Georgina from Gee Gardner says: “Be a tourist in your own town. Go to all the attractions, take silly pictures, eat plenty. You discover so much about your own home it’s wonderful.”
Emma from The Mini Mes and Me says: “Snowboarding or skiing at your local indoor centre! It’s a great way to have fun and burn a few calories.”
These are just a few ideas of how you can spend time without your children, Do you have anything you like to do without the children? Let me know below!
Until next time,
