Today marks my 9th wedding anniversary and after 14 years together, my husband and I have been through a lot together. I don’t think anything tested or changed our relationship more than adding children to our family and it’s clear to me why some couples don’t survive through those first few years with young kids. We’ve been through ups and downs in our relationship and especially when it came to our mood after having a baby.
Your love life isn’t doomed after you add children into your family though and I can attest to that. We have three young children at home and expecting our 4th and while things have changed from time-to-time, we’ve learned how to grow together and more importantly, how to communicate what we’re feeling.
Getting back in the love groove after having kids is not always simple, but there are a few tips that have helped me personally in the past 7 or 8 years on how to get that spark back and I have a feeling they’ll work for you too.
