You know when you are acutely aware that 4 kids is quite a few kids? When you take them all out to dinner for the first time.

Here's Your Family Valentines Day Plan | #McAlistersFamilyDateNight | BabyRabies.com

That was our night last night.

This wasn’t just any old dinner out, though. THIS? This was family date night at McAlister’s Deli.

McAlister’s Deli is sponsoring this post.

We are not at a point in our life when regular (or even irregular) date nights happen- like, just Scott and me. These little monsters lovely children go everywhere with us. So last night was a bit of an early Valentines Day celebration, but with the whole family.

I know we’re not alone. All of you who have no chance of sneaking off for a romantic dinner for two on the 14th, HERE’S THE PLAN:

You, your love, your littles…. your little loves- go to McAlister’s Deli on Valentines Day for a #McAlistersFamilyDateNight (and then sign up to win a whole year of family date nights).

Why? Kids eat free on February 14th- up to 2 Kids Meals for every adult entree when families dine in!

Also, because McAlister’s is the kind of place with something on the menu that will make everyone- even the pickiest of toddlers- happy. Lowell devoured his mac & cheese, applesauce, graham crackers, and milk.

A place you can take your (rowdy and still mastering table manners) crew on Valentines Day, and you’ll be treated like family.

And maybe, just maybe, if the kids can easily find something they love on the menu, and if you don’t have to stress about asking them to stop pulling the tablecloth or sticking their finger in the candle, then you might have a shot at a fun, sweet Valentines Day dinner… no matter how many kids you bring with you.

Also? Their desserts are amazing.
What is Valentines Day without great dessert?

It’s pointless. The answer is Valentines Day is pointless without great dessert.

It’s also pretty pointless if you’re not sharing it with somebody, or all the bodies, that you love. So don’t give up on a Valentines Day date night. Just make it a #McAlistersDateNight.

Then, don’t forget to enter to win an entire year of Family Date Nights at McAlister’s.  You can enter to win even if, say, your kids get the flu this weekend and you don’t get a chance to actually go to McAlister’s. I mean, I don’t wish that on any of you, but… we know it’s gonna happen to someone because KIDS.

Thanks to McAlister’s Deli for sponsoring this post and our first dinner out as a family of 6.

  • Those eyes 😍
  • Meanwhile, this one turns 4 in 5 days. 😭😭😭 #timeisanasshole
  • A little sad he's almost too big for the @dockatot Deluxe+ and toy bar. Can you believe he's 7 months old now? 😫😭👋🏻 #dockatot
  • He always comes home in the middle of nap time and climbs in bed with us.
  • I always keep teething oil in my bag these days. He has FOUR top teeth trying to come through. 😫I try not to stick dirty fingers in his mouth, especially right after I pump gas. 🤢So I also keep some @handzies soap and water wipes with me. #inmypurse
  • On our way to get the other three. We really loved spoiling Wallace this week and living that one baby life for a bit. I think he's bored of us now, though.
  • So thankful for my mom who has the energy and patience to not only watch these three but to take them to the beach all by herself. Like, that's not even something I'd attempt. She's such a badass.
  • Oh yes we did turn this #joovyspoon into a #stlblues mobile! I'm in love with the idea of personalizing one of our fav baby things this way! Must confess it was Scott's idea, but I ran with it and came up with some other ideas in today's blog post. PLUS!!! @joovy is giving away one Spoon walker (US only). Link in bio!
