With our recent anniversary (9 years!), my husband and I were reminded of our romantic side. Yes, we do still have one. It just doesn't show itself quite as much when we're busy being parents. Sure, our days are filled with spit-up, diapers and power struggles. But that doesn't mean our nights have to be too. So we arrange for a sitter and make a reservation at our favorite little Italian restaurant and look forward to an evening of reconnecting.
As parents, it's important that we keep in touch with our partners, not just to discuss the days' schedule, but to dream with, to connect to and to have a physical relationship with. It's the glue that holds this whole thing together and helps give us the support we need to continue being good parents. Are you due for a date?
