When’s the last time you had a date night with your spouse or partner? It’s been a while, huh? Usually it’s because Saturday nights are in high demand for babysitters or you wait until the last minute to reach out. Care.com complied some reasons why you NEED a date night and at Kids Play Garden we can help. Three hours of childcare are $30 for one child from 5-9 pm. on Saturday. Call now to reserve your spot… 

Here are 19 reasons to schedule a date night ASAP:

  1. You can’t remember the last conversation you had with your partner that wasn’t about poo.
  2. Your “regular” babysitter didn’t know who you were the last time you called.
  3. You’ve had macaroni and cheese for dinner more than three nights in a row.
  4. You haven’t seen any of this year’s Oscar-nominated movies — or last year’s or the year before that…
  5. It’s good for your kids to see you spending time together and modeling a healthy adult relationship.
  6. You just spent a fortune on your kid’s dance recital costume, but can’t remember the last time you bought a new top for yourself.
  7. You haven’t bought a new lipstick since you gave birth.
  8. Last time you went dancing, the Macarena was all the rage.
  9. When your kids fly the coop, you’re less likely to suffer from empty-nest syndrome, because you’ll already be in the habit of having fun together on your own.
  10. You introduced yourself to the new neighbor as “Oliver’s Mom.”
  11. When that new neighbor asked for a restaurant recommendation, you drew a blank.
  12. You have no idea what to pay a date-night babysitter
  13. You have trouble picturing your partner without a child slung over his shoulder.
  14. Talking about your hopes, fears and dreams fosters intimacy that is so easily lost in the day-to-day of having young kids.
  15. Having a little parent-free time can help your kids be more independent.
  16. Date nights can spark that “falling-in-love” feeling from the early days of your relationship.
  17. Studies have shown that happily married people have stronger immune systems — so less chance of getting sick.
  18. You’ll remember why you fell in love with each other in the first place.
  19. You deserve it, darn it!

So please, take some time away for Saturday night – we’re here for you.
