If you’re anything like me you are a busy mom trying to get everything done. You barely have anytime to yourself, not even a few minutes to go to the bathroom. Since I barely have time to myself, I definitely don’t get any time with my husband. We’ve had to get creative and find some ways to spend with each other everyday.
Eating lunch together– My husband and I have been doing this a lot lately. Since all 3 of our kids are in school now we can actually go on lunch dates! We met up for an hour and discuss what’s going on without interruption!
Find a show and watch it together– My husband and I have a few shows that we watch together so it’s like a mini date every time it comes on.
Exercise together– Many gyms have child watch. Go at the same time and walk the treadmill or head outside to the track.
Trade off kids with a neighbor– We live away from family so getting a babysitter can be pretty expensive. We get with a neighbor and plan a couple of weekends that we can switch off. We mark them down in a calendar and stick to it.
Cook dinner– Yes, the kids can be running around like crazy, but you can spend some quality time with your husband when you are preparing dinner!
Put a movie on in the car– I don’t like putting a movie on while we are just driving around town, but sometimes it’s nice to be able to talk while the kids are wearing headphones and being quiet.
When squeezing in these times just don’t cut it you can plan a getaway together. This is so important to do for yourselves. You can spend as much or as little money as you want. You can go far or an hour away. My husband and I are planning a trip this year. We are looking to really get away!
Don’t these look so warm and relaxing! Here’s a picture form Akumal Secrets Resorts & Spas.
Here’s one from Maroma Beach. I just want to grab a drink and sit down in one of those beach chairs.
