25 Fun Mom and Son Dates

After our little squishy bear– aka Chunky Monkey — was born I noticed that our two older boys were vying for attention from us, especially our middle child, you know middle child syndrome. They were constantly acting out, not doing things we asked them to do and just basically not listening. So recently I implemented a date night for boys. Basically what we do is each of us ( Mr. Newman and myself) take one of the boys –minus Chunky Monkey– out for a date. It could either be going to the bookstore and look at our favorite books and getting ice cream later, or going to the park to play.
