Lots of people believe that once you have children the marriage is over. The sparks are dead and its all about the children. While it is always about the kids you have to also make time for yourself. Go on dates even if its at home. Just don’t let the fire die keep on blazing it up the best way you can.
- We do share a history—most couples do. Most couples have a story of their own special romance hidden inside of the 9 to 5, dinner-making, and school bus meeting; tucked inside of a peck of a kiss we wish lasted longer; buried beneath laundry piles
- I admit to wanting a future with more of “us” waiting before the sunset.
- I want to know in my heart our kids will only be little for so long, so we’ll cherish and nurture this gentle space in their lifetimes, where we get to be parents, and partners, and a family. I do believe this, but I know also life can be unfair.
“We try to fit our “us” into our Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. We try to be the people who met, fell in love, and had children, before finding our love story placed haphazardly underneath a stack of our daughter’s school papers.”
