How to Spice Up Your Love Life With a Staycation
There's nothing like day after day (after day) of parenting to put the kibosh on your love life. Between the piles dirty dishes, the endless mounds of laundry, the constant cries of "Mommy, mommy!" it's hard to find a moment for romance. (Who're we kidding, it's hard to find a moment for a shower, never mind romance!)
Our advice for how to spice up your love life? Get the heck outta dodge! Book the babysitter or ship the kids off to Grandma's house for a Saturday night and check into a nearby hotel or spa for a mini staycation. You don't have to get on a plane or go very far to feel totally removed from the day-to-day grind. A local night away is the perfect way to reconnect with your spouse without a big, expensive production. Hotels often offer last-minute deals or special rates for locals. So next time you're feeling like you haven't connected with your spouse in ages, just toss some sexy lingerie in a bag and go!
Once you check into the hotel, don't talk about the kids, whatever you do! Just try to focus on your man! Bust out a bottle of bubbly, have a romantic dinner, make out and then crash for a good old-fashioned night of uninterrupted sleep (remember those?!).
Not only will the night away spice up your love life, it'll improve your parenting. Seriously! You'll be back to cheer the kids at soccer practice the next morning ... with a smile on your face!
