Date nights

Does anyone else have a hard time getting their DH to schedule date nights?

We were supposed to have one last month but had to cancel since DH ended up having to go overseas. Haven't gotten around to it this month yet either. Our last date night was in May. :-(

I've brought it up a few times this week and DH just keeps saying "there's always next month". Date nights really help me reconnect with DH but unless I do all the planning, they don't happen. As a result, we didn't go on a date until Selin was 6 months old and we've only had ONE overnight without her since she was born!

Girl. I feel you. DH is really bad about date nights. And if I don't plan them or push them, they don't happen. Since we don't live near family, we haven't had an overnight in about five years. Not kidding.

We went out a few weeks ago, and that was the first time in forever. It's only since DS is really old enough to manage DD for a few hours that we can get away consistently at all.
