I keep seeing these posts for Parents Night out around town. I am all for parents cultivating they relationships outside the kids. But, it must be affordable. When you have multiple children, the cost for a dinner and movie out as well as a babysitter can break the monthly budget. Because of this, our kids have become used to eating with us at restaurants (manners are KEY here) and heard us say multiple times, ‘No we are not going out to eat because children do not eat out FREE tonight’.
But, when you can afford it, a date night awesome. So, in an effort to help all those other parents out, who like me, want to do a date-night, but might not want to drop $70 on a babysitter I have compiled a list of Parents Night Out where the kids can have as much fun as the adults!
In the North Sound area aka: Seattle and surrounding areas, check out this great resource! http://www.redtri.com/seattle-kids/drop-off-childcare-for-date-night-in-seattle Red Tricycle online has a great list of Parent/Kid night out events.
