The other week my husband and I went on a real date, sort of. Not a “mom can you watch the baby while we go out for dinner, and I eat so fast I get heartburn because I really miss the girls date.”
Instead, this was more like a take your time and enjoy each other type of date. I can’t remember the last time my husband and I hung out while the sun was shining but I’m almost certain it was back when our littlest love was still inside my belly. And even though, it was so hard for me to be away from my baby, having only been away for a little more than a couple hours just once before, I knew that the two of us were in desperate need of quality time.
Thanks to Disney making arrangements for a day of fun for members of the Disney Interactive family the Mr. and I got to spend a day at the Magic Kingdom and meet some members of the Babble, Disney Baby, and Spoonful Family. To say that it was anything less than magical would be an understatement. It was perfect and needed. Just a week prior we had been to Disneyland and California Adventure with the girls, but this was the first time as adults the two of us had been without a little one. Although there is nothing more beautiful than looking at Disneyland through the eyes of your child there is also something quite special about looking at it through carefree grownup eyes too. Disneyland has the ability to take you to “a whole new world” as Princess Jasmine would say. And for a few hours we were stress free, laughing, exploring, and experiencing a dose of Disney Magic, just the two of us.
Our experience has led me to believe that Disneyland and California Adventure make the perfect destination for a date. Yes, I know it would be quite a financial splurge but I would gladly give up a few fancy dinners to relive the very substance my childhood dreams were made of with the adult love of my life.
On behalf of me and my Mr. thank you Disney for a lovely day. And thank you mom for volunteering to watch the girls so we could go. As magical as Disneyland and California Adventure can be while with your entire family, I am a believer that you should make an effort to go with just your spouse at least once. What are your thoughts? Have you ever been to Disneyland with just your spouse? Would you go without your children?
