A Mummy and Daddy Date

It isn't very often that me and Mark get time alone. Of course there is the time when Paige is in bed but she is still in our care.

Paige is nearly 17 months. In those 17 months both me and Mark have only left her 3 times and one of those times was when I needed to go to the hospital.

The first time Paige was around 8 weeks old and we spent a few hours shopping and relaxing. The last time was Sunday.

We took Paige and a few toys around to my dads. Me and Mark then left and went into town to look for wedding rings and to have a coffee. The wedding ring search didn't quite go to plan but we did manage the coffee and spent some quality mummy and daddy time together. It's always nice to have time together away from Paige. We miss her so much while we are apart but it's nice for her to spend some quality time with her grandad and for us to spend time together as a couple.

Day to day life can get repetitive. You can start to annoy each other and sometimes forget that instead of talking out nappies and the baby you have things in common, things you used to talk about. Turns out all we ended up talking about was Paige... Typical! The wedding also came into the convocation :)

Trying to stop Mark taking pictures, lol!

Sorry for all the pictures of me. Mark is quite camera shy! He was there though, I promise :)

Do you have mummy and daddy dates?

Thanks for reading,

  1. Aww sounds lovely....
    My fella and I have time together just not often enough...The joys of kids...lol

  2. I think David and I have been on a "Date" twice once was on our anniversary last year we went for a meal and even though we tried to take our time we were done in an hour and once a few months back we went for lunch when I had half a day from work and Thomas was still at nursery

  3. My second daughter is just two month and we are so looking forward to have some time alone!! Even a coffee and an hour of chatting sound amazing! I love your blog ( I follow you via bloglovi')

  4. We hardly ever have just us time either, especially now LL is here, but when we do it is so lovely and we really enjoy ourselves. x

  5. I love coffee dates. We get one usually once a month, although we often take CJ (7months) with us. But he always sleeps through it so it's never any interruption at all. Time to talk and reconnect is so so important. We went years without doing it, I'm so glad we make the time to do it now.

    1. Awww, yes its nice when they sleep through it hehe x
