With Valentine’s Day coming up, it’s time to get out of the house without the kids. Just you and your special love. I was flipping through my “Parents” magazine and found a real gem: a “Date Night: A Cheat Sheet.” It’s designed to help hard working parents, who love and adore their kids, remember that it’s important to have conversations that aren’t about school pick ups, soccer practice or what’s for dinner tonight.
The list is adapted from Gary Smalley and Ted Cunningham (authors of “Great Parents, Lousy Lovers”) and is created as a printable list that you can actually take on your date!
They break down your conversation starters by restaurant entree. So clever.
Here’s a sample:
“Over drinks and appetizers .. If you could have any occupation for a year, what would it be?”
“Over the entree … If you could take lessons to become an expert at anything, waht would it be?”
“Over dessert … Name one thing you miss about our dating days.”
Sixteen questions in all, this is a great way to make sure you focus the entire date on each other. You can always come up with your own list, but this one is done for you and is offered as a free printable (registration required.)
