How Do You Date Night? :: Date Ideas When You’re Married With Kids

Finding time to get a date night in every once in awhile is not always easy. All too often we look up from the hustle and bustle of our life to find it has been months since we’ve had quality time with our significant other. As parents, especially with little ones not yet in school, I think it is important to intentionally schedule in date nights.

We stood in line to check in and I gave a friendly half-smile/head nod to a nice couple in the waiting room.

10 Easy Ways to Help Your Child’s Teacher

School is in full swing! Class routines have been established, teachers have figured out names, and the learning has begun. Your child’s teacher puts so much time, energy, effort and (their own) money into the school year. How about helping him/her out this year? Some teachers will ask for help sure, but lots won’t. It’s little things, like those I am listing, that can make all the difference.
