Get a Babysitter Tonight: 4 Creative Ideas for a Romantic Evening
Husbands love to hear the incredibly sexy phrase, "I got a babysitter." It means that you are going out for the night, and planning to sit at the big kids’ table for a change. Here are a few steamy, creative ideas for couples that need a break from sticky hands and Cheerio necklaces.
Get a Hotel Room (With Two Beds)

Once you have children, not everything is related to sex. Most couples just want to be home alone for a change. However, when you have kids that are too young for sleepovers, the only choice is to leave them with a sitter and get a room.
A hotel room is perfect for a couple that wants to cuddle in bed and watch R-rated movies like The Green Mile after years of waiting patiently. Whether you spend the night or not, getting a hotel room for quiet privacy is romantic and peaceful. It will make you both feel like you did before children, again: carefree and calm. Sometimes the most romantic thing of all is getting to sleep in separate beds, together.
Go Out Alone
By planning ladies’ night and a man-date for the same evening, you and your partner can each have a great time and miss one another a bit. Enjoy a bit of rowdy chaos with your friends, and when you return home your partner will seem all-the-sexier.
Choosing to invest in separate hobbies or friends can be a great thing for a couple. It can make you seem more interesting to one another, and give you something to talk about. Don’t be surprised if there are fireworks after the sitter leaves that evening: getting time alone can be quite an aphrodisiac!
Rent a Fantastic, Sexy Car for an Occasion
If your husband has always dreamed of a Porsche but your budget calls for a minivan and Spaghetti-Os, then you can always rent his dream car for an anniversary or Valentine’s Day. He will love driving it fast up winding canyons to make out point, and seeing your hair flowing in the wind from his periphery.
When you arrive at a quiet, hidden cove surprise him with a sexy Valentine gift or birthday present. Something sweet and unexpected like a Porsche key chain or watch engraved with "You are worth 100 Porsches" will set the memory in stone. Make sure you snap a few photographs of him in his dream car, too: print one out and write a promise on the back to buy him a Porsche when you win the lottery.
Set Your Alarm & Leave Early

Evening dates are traditional and romantic, but sunrise dates can be much more exciting. Set your alarm for the early morning and have a sitter prepared to wake up the kids. Head out to the beach or a mountainous overlook for sunrise with a picnic basket and blankets.
You and your loved one will experience the serene bliss of sunrise without crying kids and spilled milk. Nothing is more special than a moment that reminds you why you got together in the first place.
Creative, romantic ideas show your loved one that you care and are trying. By surprising him or her with special moments you can keep the mystery and romance both alive and kicking.
