Fake Out/Take Out – Make dinner for your kids, sit down and talk with them while they eat – they likely won’t even notice you aren’t eating (or eat dinner like normal and do this for desert). Then after the kids go to bed, one of you goes and gets take out and brings it home. You have a romantic dinner for two, while the kids sleep – no babysitter needed!
Be a kid again – after the kids go to bed, get out some of your favorite games (board games, video games, whatever you like) and play with your spouse! See also dates at home section.
