March Parent/Child Date Accountability Post

We are still doing well with our dates! This month, I had McKenna and Brinley and my husband had Brayden and Kaitlyn.

Nate took Brayden to go bowling, eat pizza, and play arcade games. Brayden loved doing this. We even had a coupon for free bowling, so it was quite inexpensive overall. 

Kaitlyn has been wanting fish for years. I decided she is old enough she can be 100% responsible for them. So Nate took Kaitlyn to dinner and then they went to Walmart and bought 3 goldfish for under a dollar. We already owned a fish bowl and some rocks. It was all very inexpensive. 

McKenna and I went to the ballet Hansel and Gretel. McKenna adores the ballet. It is a perfect date for her.

Brinley and I went shopping for a new dress for her. She had a blast. I don’t love this date idea, especially since we went shopping in January for our date together. She had a great time and while we were out, she told me, “Mom, you are my best friend!” When I do a date with her again in May, I hope to have something more unique than shopping again. Who knows, maybe she love to shop?

Once again, I am updating date info on this page: https://www.babywisemom.com/p/dates.html. It will be a running list to help give you ideas if you need them.

    I love your blog! The link for date ideas didn't work for some reason, but I enjoyed reading about your latest adventures. It's interesting to see what each of your children are into. I've posted a few questions about sleep training, and you have been such a great help. Thank u so much… And now I'm back for another one.My 6 month old wakes up in the middle of the night and talks and talks… I used in rush over to give her her paci right away, but then she gets angry and cries, and so I end up nursing her (and changing her diaper while I'm at it) to get her to go back to sleep. Lately, I've been trying to wait for her to finish talking, hoping she would eventually go back to sleep, but what usually ends up happening is her talking turning into crying, and me nursing her to get her to go back to sleep. This whole process takes about 1-2 hours. Do you have any advice? Thank you again.
