I found this video about Date Night on another blog I read. It's about a mom and dad who are going on a date night for Valentine's Day. The poor mother has run across hell and back to get everything just right for a sitter. She has had a few sitters cancel on her and she is a frazzled mess. She hasn't even had time for a shower for the date night. At the end the mom says she just wants to go to bed and her husband replies, "bow chicka bow wow."
The husband is my husband. As much as I love him, he doesn't really know what it takes to keep the house going around here. I can be cooking dinner and emptying the dishwasher and entertaining a baby and he is in the living room chilling out in front of Seinfeld asking if I want any boom boom later. What is he thinking? Well, obviously he isn't thinking.
I had to laugh for the poor mother. She fought tooth and nail for a babysitter but all she wanted to do was go to bed. I get it. A night with friends is great. A date night dinner is amazing. A night to watch movies in your sweat pants is heaven. So for all you mamas out there like me who want to strangle your husband when he thinks sitting in front of the TV while you get the kid(s) in a good place for a once in a blue moon babysitter watch the video. You won't regret it!
And did I mention that this video is part of a contest? The more views the better for the girl who created it at Mompetition!
