During a recent interview, Anna Duggar told us how she and Josh do date nights now that they live in Washington D.C. and do not have family nearby.
Josh and I aren't able to go on as many dates alone in D.C. as we were able to in Arkansas, but there is a little Mexican restaurant off the Capitol that we enjoy. Often we just put the kids to bed and do a date at home. We like to sit on the porch and share our hearts.
Here, it is more affordable to bring your children on your date than to hire a babysitter. So we tell our children: "We are going on a date, but you get to come with us, and we are going to practice our manners." And the kids will do their best to have really good manners because they know it's a special occasion. I remember going on a few dates with my parents as a child, and it was special to see them take time to focus on each other.
