So our anniversary is coming up in April. DS will be 10 months old. I am NOT cool with leaving him anywhere. He needs me, and I don't have a decent pump, and no one that I really feel comfortable leaving him with. (Not sure if I would leave him, even if I DID have someone...)<br><br>
What ideas are there in which my husband and I could have a decent time on our anniversary--including little G? I don't enjoy going out to eat with him, as of right now. He doesn't like to sit down in a high chair, and every place we have been, the boothes do not allow enough room to comfortably nurse in them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> He's getting too big for the whole nursing in a booth thing. He just learned how to crawl, and doesn't appreciate being made to sit in a high chair when it is a big floor down there to crawl on.<br><br>
We just moved a few minutes driving distance from the ocean a couple months ago, but my husband is all "beached out". He doesn't want to go to the beach for our anniversary, he wants to go somewhere different.<br><br>
Any ideas?

Are there any nice parks in your area? You could picnic. How 'bout a weekend camping trip somewhere not too far? Are there any good concerts (not fancy ones) that you could go to around then?<br><br>

If you want to stay home, you can have a special meal, either homemade or carry out, complete with music. You can include your ds or wait until he goes to sleep. Rent a movie, it will be almost like going to dinner and a movie. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I think it's great to include the baby in your anniversary plans. I would probably get a backpack carrier and plan a hike (not too difficult though) with a picnic at the top. This will of course depend on where you live- a hike in April is a bad idea here in Maine!

Those are all very good suggestions. I will run them past my husband, though I'm pretty sure he wants to go somewhere.<br><br>
That whole camping thing. I'm wondering how that would work out with the baby and all.....
