Having children is a wonderful thing. It’s great to watch them grow up and it’s exciting to see them change. One problem you may find comes up when you have children is finding time to do things with your spouse.

I don’t know if you’re like us, but our boys are busy with sports all the time. Our oldest son is in football and then our youngest is in basketball and track. So we seem to be on the go from the time school starts until the time it gets out. That’s a long time to go without having date night or time alone.

The past few years have been a lot better for us, but it didn’t used to be that way. When our boys were too little to stay on their own it was a struggle to find time for ourselves. If you find yourself in this situation you need to get out of it. You need to find a sitter and go out. You should do this on a monthly basis or more if you can make it happen.

It’s important to find time to be alone together. It gives you the ability to show each other you care and you have the ability to get away from the hectic schedule you encounter when you’re always on the run with the kids.
