Date Night: Passing or Failing?


I’m super excited to announce that Kristen Howerton and I have a new weekly video series called “Mama Said” here at Babble. Kristen and I met through blogging a few years ago, and our families have become good friends over the course of many, many playdates here in Southern California. One thing that has become a constant with us is our love of chatting/bitching/wondering about all things mothering and parenthood, and we thought maybe you’d like to join in. So, grab a snack! Or a beer. Beer is good.

This week’s video covers the ever-elusive date night. I am SO BAD about date night — in fact, after careful analysis, my mention in the video of one date night a month is pretty much a gross over-exaggeration. Try once every 2-3 months. (We are the worst.) But! I’ve come up with a new way of doing date night…well, just take a look and let me know what you all think. (We tried it, and it was quite successful, if I do say so myself!)
