When kids enter into a family, it makes life more fun, more purposeful and more beautiful. There is no doubt that it causes a strain on the relationship you have with your partner, the time gets split up, the ability to get up and go becomes hindered and energy levels can be zapped.
That is why it is important to work on your relationship as well — keep it alive, fun and loving. Let’s face it, going out on a date with kids at home can sometimes feel impossible. You have to find a babysitter you trust and it can add up to quite a lot of money once you factor in the cost of the date and the babysitter. Most of us only have time for that maybe once a month, but most of us need the time with our partner more often.
As parents, we are really great at thinking on our toes — it’s something we need to be good at with all the strange things our kids like to throw on us. So, why not apply that to your relationship and think outside the ‘dinner and a movie date’ box? You don’t need to plan a date far in advance just to spend time with your partner, you can make it a regular, weekly thing if you just plan smart.
