New Year’s Resolution: Spend more time together as a couple.
Why not start now?
I am guilty of avoiding this myself. I have the excuse that we’ve been in the middle of a move, but with a new house and a new year, it is time to find reliable child care so my husband and I can put on non-carrot stained clothes and enjoy a stolen hour or two reconnecting with the inner adult.
If this is too huge of a move, maybe take some baby steps and hire a sitter to watch the kids while you throw a party at home? You’ll be right there, but you will be able to enjoy adult company without one ear pinned to the moniter.
It is not to late to find a sitter for New Year’s Eve. Just check out one of these great services to locate child care to find someone you can trust in your area:
