Disney knows

" The very things that held you down are going to carry you up"
Want to guess what that is from?
That is right, beloved DUMBO.
Yesterday we hit the 6 month mark of getting guardianship of the 3 kiddos. Boy is it getting rougher, there is part of me that says that is because they feel safe, know they are loved etc. But there is another part that says they are brats and I am running out of patience. In the 6 months my husband and I have gone out, with out them 1x in Oct, 1x in Jan and now 1x in March. I realized that is NOT A GOOD IDEA.
So we have choosen to have date night once a month, with one girl night and one guy night. That gives us 2 breaks a month and allows us both to have 1 on 1 time with the kids too.
So yeah, this quote from DUMBO, really sits with me this week.
Happy SPRING to you all.

I think this is a fabulous idea! Like I said below...one day at a time! And making a point for date nights and nights to yourself will make life a little easier for you both. Awesome! <3

I think date nights AND time away with the girls is good, no matter what your situation!
