Aging children or babies pays a small toll on your relationships not just with others but with yourself. It takes time to find the balance even those moms that see, to have it down pack from the moment of birth they don't they play it off. We all have this journey after a child is born even the father if he is in the picture. You have to work to keep all the relationships going and the one with yourself. You need you time to even if it's just once a month or once every few months take that time to get to know you or to do something for yourself. After nearly 6 years of marriage and 3 kids that I have found that taking time for each other every few months or when family want to take our kids randomly for a few hours that is having us time having a little fun like walking or earring alone is nice. Making that time is a good thing.

That makes all parents are so proud to raise their children. All the happy thoughts treasured through the years of existence.

When we lived in NC my parents would take our kids every Saturday night and it was nice for my husband and I to have some time for us. Now that we don't have family here we don't have that anymore. I miss it but we have been managing. =)

That is a great idea to schedule time for you and your husband to be alone for a while. Sure helps keep a marriage strong.

We always plan to be away from the kiss on our anniversary a little get way from them for a night. It's a nice to just have the whole night vs a few hours but we take what is offered or when we can arrange family to babysit for us.
