Tell Me: What do you do on date night when you’re sleep deprived?

My husband and I started Friday night date nights three weeks ago. Tonight would/will be our third date night. Since we have a 4 month old, our “dates” are on our couch in front of the tv. We eat junk food and popcorn and spend 45 minutes deciding what to watch.

However, tonight I need some advice. We are going on three nights of very little sleep. Our beautiful baby has decided to wake up at 2 am, 3 am, 4 am, finally falling asleep at 5 am. Since my husband works full-time, I try to get up with the baby so he can sleep. This means I am totally exhausted. Plus, I need a lot of sleep anyway. In my perfect life, I’d get 9 hours every night. (I can hear you laughing from here)

So, do we keep our date? Do we reschedule? What do you do when life gets in the way of romance? Give me your best advice, because my brain is not firing today!

  1. I feel like we are the same person! I have a 3 month old and my husband works full time at night (local movie theater). We struggle to not only find balance for these date nights but also what to do when we finally get one! We’re lucky we CAN go watch a movie for free but otherwise, we’re in the same boat as you guys. Definitely following this blog for ideas…

    • That’s sweet! I was thinking I’d try to post twice a week. Once for a recipe and once for something else that’s going on in my/our lives. Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated Megan!
