Date night? Not tonight!

The last time Josh and I went on a date, we headed to La Piazza for dinner. And there, just as we'd finished our salads, my mobile phone rang. Z had just thrown up on the stairs. We got the rest of our dinner to go and headed home, where a feverish Z was already falling asleep in her bed.

Now we've got six weeks--give or take--to go on another date. Because once we throw a nursing newborn into the mix, going out to eat isn't going to be as simple as leaving Z at home with one of our two wonderful teenage babysitters.

That's why I want to win the Parent Bloggers Network's latest Blog Blast, sponsored by eHarmony's new marriage program. They're giving away $100 for a fabulous date night plus an additional $100 for babysitting. You've got until the end of the day to participate.
