Girls night before kids VS Girls night after kids

Standard

Tonight I had a girls night. My first one in a very very long time. I can’t even remember the last one I had,it was sometime before the kids came along.

Here are 5 differences between girls night before kids VS girls night after kids.

Before kids:

You meet up after work or any other time or day  that suits you.

After kids:

Getting a night out needs to be organised at least a few days to a week in advance. If you even go out somewhere.q

Before kids:

You leave your house when you want and get dressed up and put make -up on – if you want!

After kids:

You organise for your friends to come to you and you all wear your most comfortable clothes and NO make up AFTER the kids are in bed!

What we watched

Before kids:

You go out to see the new movie at the cinema. Gold lounge perhaps?

After kids:

Everyone brings a dvd and you decide what you want to watch when they arrive. Gold lounge = your couch that you have only recently cleared of the overflow of laundry that covered it all day.

Gold lounge? Think not

Before kids:

You may go out for dinner or just dessert before the movie

After kids:

Everyone brings dessert or something to nibble on.

Before kids:

You may go out for a coffee after the movie. There’s no rush to get home.

After kids:

You are either already in your pajamas or you are in bed before your last guest is halfway home. Better get some sleep before the kids wake up again.

What would you ad? How has your nights out changed from before you had kids to after you had kids?

  1. This cracked me up. So true! 🙂 I try and do girls night every 6 weeks or so, either at my house or meeting them for dinner. It’s so important! I actually got super lucky and had a girls WEEKEND last weekend – it felt weird leaving baby and hubs at home, but it was really, really amazing. No one needed ANYTHING from me! 🙂

      That sounds like a fantastic time away! I would love to do something like that once baby girl is bigger. For now the occasional sleep in would be nice 🙂
