Hey, Mamma. Happy Friday! Countdown to the weekend!
This morning my husband said, “I miss you.” I know I’ve been gone since Monday, but I also know he’s talking about more than that.
It’s been ages since we’ve had a dress-up, go-out, wear-the-high-heels date night. An us-as-couple night. And we need one.
Now, yes, our family is great. All the kids are healthy, the cars are working and the fridge is full. The lawn is mowed, the bills are paid (mostly), and we’re up-to-date on everyone’s sports and school schedules.
The go out and be a couple thing.
The nuzzle him and be sexy thing.
The have wine and laugh and remember why you married him thing.
We haven’t done that in way too long.
So. It’s Friday. I have a whole weekend. And so do you. (And if it won’t fit, you have next weekend.) Let’s plan a little something to keep the home fires burning, eh, Mamma? The best thing we can do for our kids is to have a solid marriage. And to have a solid marriage, we have to remember to have some fun every once in a while.
Wear the dress. Wear the heels. Smile at him like you used to. Go for a walk this sultry summer night and remember what brought you together in the first place.
Happy date night, Mamma.
