I use to find it incredibly hard to keep dating my husband while raising kids.
Have you guys ever felt this way?
We have three kids that are all athletes and involved in other extracurricular activities. Which makes it feel like all my husband and I do is work, pick up and drop off kids.
Then on game day, we put on our cheerleading face.
I haven’t mentioned the regular household duties that have to be attended to every single day and cook as well as grocery shopping. Then all of a sudden, we look at our calendar and see that we have a free Saturday.
But here is the funny part, and please let me know if you can relate. My husband and I look at each other and say on our next free day will do something, but tonight we rest!
Don’t let that happen to you!
Take care of your relationship with your spouse and guard it with your life. You guys are best friends, and your unite is so essential. Without your close bond, the family will not function as a unit.
Tell Your Kids No
It took us a while, but we learned how to tell the kids NO!
- NO, I will not take you to your friend’s house and then pick you up at 10 pm
- NO, you can not be in every sport known to man
- NO, I will not come to pick you up from school early just because you want to be home! I have to finish work and taking an hour break will put me behind
- NO NO NO NO NO NO NO
Start saying no to all the unnecessary things in life and focus on what matters.
Your marriage should be one of the main things you focus on and making sure that you still like each other. My husband and I have so many inside jokes, and some are even about our kids.
Since we made our marriage a priority and go out on dates quite often, our laughter has become stronger, our silly and carefree behavior has become comfortable.
So until next time, I urge everyone to,
Never Stop Dating…
