When you first met your significant other, there was a spark…

This spark ignited into a flame as you got to know each other better. As you continue in your relationship, that flame bursts into a roaring fire. That is until…the kids come along.

Your time gets filled and energy gets depleted when caring for young children, that having a little “Mommy and Daddy Time” comes few and far between. Sleeping or getting your own things done, take priority. My husband and I haven’t had a Date Night since our daughter was born, four and a half years ago, but we do try to have some “Us Time” after the weelets have gone to bed. So what do you do to keep the fire burning? Date Night? A weekend away? What about a sex tape?! Some couples do this to spice things up when the excitement in their relationship starts to dwindle. With the current technology available to us, making your own home video is an easy accomplishment, but what happens if it gets into the wrong hands? Sex Tape from Sony Pictures releases July 18th, 2014 in theatres Sony Pictures has generously provided Raincity Parent a “Sex Tape” gift basket to giveaway to one lucky reader.

Every parent needs a Date Night once in awhile.
Unless…you have no child care options available.
Five ways date nights may strengthen couples.
(1) A date night is an opportunity to communicate.
(2) Date nights are valuable for their novelty.
(3) Date nights may strengthen or rekindle that romantic spark that can be helpful in sustaining the fires of love over the long haul.
(4) Date nights may strengthen a couple’s sense of commitment to one another.
(5) Date nights are a way to relieve stress.
The American Red Cross did a poll in 2012 that found that 55% of parents surveyed decided to stay home in the past 24 months, because they couldn’t find a babysitter.
I am totally guilty of this!
