➡They each get one day a month for their date.
➡Each child may pick any adult (mom, dad, or grandparents) to go with them.
➡The child picks the activity and meal place too.
Last week my daughter wanted me to take her on a date. She chose to go see The Croods movie. (My second son chose this exact thing the Saturday prior but I didn’t mind seeing it twice on my kids dates.)
After the movie she was still hungry so she chose to eat at the little diner next door to the theater. I ordered the BLT and fries pickles while she chose a corn dog and fries. We played arcade games while we waited for our food.
It was a FANTASTIC mommy/daughter date! She really enjoyed having my undivided attention and I enjoyed talking with her one on one. I am glad we started this new tradition. I really plan to continue these dates until they leave for college (maybe a tad ahead of myself here but a mom can dream).
Do you go on dates with your children? What things do you go do on your dates?
