Parent dates are a trap!

To would be parents: we have a 9 year old. We are in a shut in order, and its fine, but rare for us to have a span of time for adult things, like watching a show.

@susan and I just had an hour to ourselves to watch a show, and ended up looking at baby photos. Of our kid. The one we live with, like, all the time.

To would be parents: do you have this kind of time? Do you have non-child related interests? Because this is how it works now…


We haven’t had a grown up date since before the covid times, but when we would occasionally get one, it was extremely hard to not talk about the kids the whole time.
