Couple Time: Squeezing In Some Stolen Moments
Taking care of the kids, going to the office, preparing meals, visiting the doctor, doing the laundry, are just few of the things that keep us busy. Where could we squeeze in some quality time with our partner? Well, here are some ideas to help you out:
- Drop the kids off to their grannies. At least once or twice a month bring your children to their grandparents so they can spend quality time too. I’m sure kids will enjoy staying there while you and your husband are out because most grannies are spoil-ers. If your parents are miles away and they get the chance to visit you or vice versa, then grab the opportunity.
- Make every time together a quality time. If your husband drives you to work, or when you watch TV at night after a long day, or when you go to the grocery store, you can turn those ordinary days to special moments with him. Add something that can make it extra ordinary like playing your favorite music while in the car, having coffee together before going to the grocery or serve a special wine while watching TV.
- Take a shower together. Should I elaborate more?
- Hold hands while walking. Sounds cheesy, huh.
- Work on a project together like remodeling your living room, or deciding where to go for the next family vacation.
These are just few things to help you get an extra special time with your partner despite the busy schedules. Having these “extra special” moments will not just make you have fun together as a couple but the main point here is to keep the fire burning in your relationship.
Do you have other ideas in mind you want to share?
Thank you so much Ghezzi for this wonderful post! It’s so true, finding quality time with your partner once you have kids can seem daunting, but there are indeed some simple things you can do.
