Do you find yourself feeling as though you and your spouse are ships passing in the night? If you’re anything like us, we’re forever crossing paths on his way to work or kids’ activities. It seems that the housework is never done and that there is never time for us to sit back and focus on us. Balancing marriage and kids can be tricky, but with practice it can be done! Here are some great ideas on how to balance your time between marriage and kids.
5 Tips to Balance Your Time Between Marriage and Kids
1. Find ways to remind your husband that you care.
When things get crazy-busy at home, it’s tough to remember to go the extra step to show your husband that you care. Getting yourself in the habit of making one extra lunch in the morning (to send with him) or slipping the occasional “love coupon” in a place that you know it will only be found by him will serve as a reminder that you care.
We love to leave inside-reminders for each other; things that are significant only to the two of us. He leaves my favorite candy, I leave a silly reminder of a trip that we took together. Doing things for each other that are meaningful only to us helps to remind us of the connection that we have.
2. Make a point of laughing together.
