Some of you may not know this, but it is difficult to find a babysitter when you have 6 children. Hard to believe, I know, but it's true. People are not knocking down our door asking to babysit for us. Wimps. Just kidding. Kinda.
Anyway, this year for Valentine's Day, hubby and I are going out on a bonafide date!! It will be our first time in *years* to be out without having anyone with us who needs help cutting their meat. "How?" you ask. We feel like our oldest is finally old enough and mature enough to be left in charge for a couple of hours while we enjoy a meal at a nearby restaurant.
You have to know that in our small town, all destinations are within 5 minutes of our house. So, we plan to put in a video, make some threats of severe punishment for any monkey business, and, with our cell phones in hand, enjoy an evening out. WOOHOO!!
There you have my tip for Works For Me Wednesday. Grow your children old enough and responsible enough that they can hold down the fort for a couple of hours while you're gone. Works for me....finally!!
