with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
My husband and I have been dreaming about getting away together, just the two of us. The last time we managed to do so was three years ago, when we went to Las Vegas for three nights. We’d love to go to Hawaii, as we’ve never been, and we have enough Alaska Airlines miles to get there for free.
Alas, the three children we’re raising aren’t old enough to be left alone and at this point in time there is nobody who can come and watch them for us for a week. I set that Hawaii dream on fire last night in a rare instance of facing reality (that’s usually my husband’s specialty.)
Instead, we’re going to trade weekends with his brother and sister-in-law (they have two kids), and at least get away for a complete night or two, just the two of us, and allow our in-laws to do the same. Until that happens, we’ll continue to get away when we can on date nights. Or date days, like today. We have seasons passes to the local ski hill and are going to spend the school hours carving through the fresh powder that’s accumulated over the last few days.
Do you get away without your kids often? How do you manage it?
