Can you remember the last time you and your mate had a Date Night? How about a night out with your friends? 

Being a parent is rewarding and fulfilling, but having a little time for yourself is important too! Regular date nights can strengthen relationships, increase communication, and allow you to de-stress. And ultimately, happy parents make happy kids!

If dinner and a movie is your standard go-to, here are a few other suggestions that we consider to be truly "Babysitter-Worthy" events.
