A British couple’s much-anticipated date night is taking the Internet by storm this week after the blogger behind LadBaby, shared a video he titled “When you don’t have a babysitter for date night.”
Sitting on the couch, we meet a couple who’s discussing their plans for a long-awaited date night “tomorrow.”
The dad behind the viral video protested with his wife that a date night is too expensive because of the cost of a babysitter.
“We don’t need date night, do we kid? We don’t need to spend money on a babysitter. We’ll get takeaway if you want.”
He’s not wrong either. Growing up, I babysat almost every weekend. At $12-$15 an hour, it’s no wonder parents can’t get a night away! And if they can, McDonalds is the only justifiable dinner, otherwise you’re spending hundreds of dollars on a kid-free night with your spouse! It’s a luxury, really.
After his wife clarified that staying in and eating takeout would not cut it for date night, the husband and father of one then agreed to take her out.
“Go get your hair done and whatever, and come back about 8,” he said. “And we’ll go out on a date.”
“Really?!” she asked.
With the camera rolling, the husband captured his wife’s reaction when she returned home for their date the next evening.
Dressed in a pretty black dress with her hair done and fresh red lipstick, she was feeling flirty and ready to have a night out with her husband.
But her excitement quickly turned to contagious disappointment when she learned the babysitter was not there, and date night was a no-go.
