Do you feel like you’re losing the spark? That little bit of magic that makes him love you and want to be with you and talk to you? The sexiness that really gets him going? That wonder that keeps the adventure and mystery alive? When you’re a parent, it becomes hard to pay attention to much apart from your kids. Where they are, what they’re doing, how they’re doing, etc. This definitely does take it’s toll on your marriage. It completely changes the dynamics between you and your spouse because we’re adding tiny new humans into the mix.
However, this doesn’t mean it’s ruined. It means you both need to do a little more to keep the love, support, and positivity flowing between the two of you. Don’t get your panties in a twist, for this could be a huge load of fun as opposed to the huge load of work you’re thinking it sounds like.
What we at Tinystep suggest is taking a tiny step towards a better relationship. This tiny step we’re talking about is a private vacation or getaway for two. Maybe for a week, find some relative or friend with whom you can leave your child, and take your husband on holiday. Rekindle the romance, rediscover each other, have some fun, and just enjoy each other’s company.
To help you with that, here are 7 things we propose that you could do with your hubby:
