Mommy Time: 16 Real-Mom Reasons to Have Date Nights

Sometimes getting away just isn't feasible, so we have what is becoming increasingly common -- Date Night at Home! This means renting a favorite DVD or browsing our own collection of favorites. We pop popcorn or get big bowls of ice cream, or make wonderful appetizers with wine, cheese, fruits and sweets. Last night we watched Chocolat together for the first time and traded back rubs. Just the chance to sit in the recliner with my husband was wonderful! --iVillager Melissa

One of the best dates we have is to schedule my parents to take the kids to their house. It is so nice to have the house to ourselves that we almost never go out when this happens -- it's too rare. We usually order in Chinese food or pizza and have a picnic in bed. --iVillager Kady
