Quite possibly the most important piece of knowledge my sister has shared with me up to date.
The Secret Sitter.
Brian and I love to still have our time. But it's not so easy when you have 2 working parents who feel like they are missing so much. We hate leaving Harper to go on a date, but when we are out, it's mostly entertaining her so that she will be good and last through a dinner.
So when my sister introduced me to the idea of the Secret Sitter I was in awe!!!!
Two things the Secret Sitter does:
1. Your child won't freak b/c she's being put to bed by a babysitter
2. You get your date night without losing quality family time
Harper goes to bed around 8:00...we have a sitter come over around 8:30... and Voila! Date Night without the little lady ever knowing!
You might be asking if paying $20 is worth a date night at 8:30? Well, to us it IS! 2 hours (+/-) of quality talking time as a couple? Yes, so very worth it. I don't know about you, but an atmosphere outside the home lends itself to such better conversations for us! And...getting to get dressed up never hurts, either!
If you use it, I'd love to see your #secretsitter photos on IG! I'll start tagging mine, too! :)
