Date Night

Before I had kids my husband and I always said, "oh, we'll always go on a weekly date, no matter what". Yes, that was BEFORE we had kids.
Then our child was born and 3 months went by and we realized we hadn't been on a date.
Then, when we wanted to go on a date, who do we ask to baby-sit?
Then, we find a baby-sitter and if we pay the baby-sitter then that uses up our date money...

Does this sound familiar to anyone else???!

Well, now we are lucky enough to [ I THINK ] have found a solution. Another family with kids and us will swap baby-sitting and date nights (though it will be once a month!) I hope everyone can find something like this that works for them! And who knows, you may find that other family through our play group. :)

So, here is a unique date night (ok, it's more daytime!) option if you're into music -
The Pittsburgh Opera is proving to our city that high caliber culture doesn’t always have to come with high ticket prices. They are offering the...
