If you think marriage is something to work at, try adding a baby to the mix. Keeping that spark alive is so important for your relationship and your child. Every child wants to see their parents in love.
What can we all do to help our relationships?
Have a date night. That doesn’t mean you have to get a sitter and go out, although I highly recommend it. Better yet, send you kid to the grandparents house for a sleepover. You can also feed your child and then once they are in bed, order take out and light some candles. Joe and I like to even sit on our front porch with some food after Izzy goes to bed and have a glass of wine. It’s nice to eat a meal and focus on each other.
Have a day date. The kid(s) are at school and you both took a half day or you got a sitter for the afternoon on the weekend. Maybe the grandparents are even willing to take your kid(s) or come over for a few hours while you and your better half run off to a movie or spa day/afternoon.
Go on a trip, alone! That’s right, no kid(s)! Family trips are fun, but let’s be honest they are also exhausting. You need alone time with your spouse. What is a better way to keep a healthy family for your child than keeping the love going strong for you and your spouse as a couple?
Joe and I will be enjoying our first baby free vacation next week and we are both giddy about it!

It’s hard work to be a parent. It’s very difficult to keep those flames burning bright once you bring a child into your life because you become so busy and exhausted. Be sure to have a date night, go on a trip or make time for a day date.
