Mommy Style Monday: Keeping Romance Alive

Happy Monday! Today is a good week and a long week. I have parent teacher conferences Wednesday and Thursday so I won't be home until 7:00pm those days. Which is tough. I will barely see Boston. But then we get Friday off! And Monday is President's day so it's a four day weekend! Let's hope these first four days go by fast!

Today for Mommy Style Monday we are talking about how you connect with your spouse after having baby, how do you keep the romance alive? Because we all know it's hard to get some good quality time with your spouse once it isn't just you two anymore. I feel like I should be embarrassed to say that Braden and I haven't been on a date alone since Boston was born, but I'm not. Both Braden and I work so we value every single second with Boston and I couldn't imagine leaving him for more time than I have to. So Braden and I find other ways to spend quality time together. I think it is so important for you to know each other's love languages. Mine is acts of service, and although Braden may not always want to be doing things around the house to help me or whatever, he knows that if he does help me, it is easier for me to reciprocate and vise versa. Aside from that we do things together that we both enjoy, we play board games, Mario Kart (my favorite), watch TV (although we hardly ever do that), etc.

How do you connect with your spouse and keep the romance alive? I would love to hear some of your ideas! And yes I know... we need to go on a date ALONE. We will. Some day... ;) But we really just love spending time together as a family and Boston is just the cutest, most fun kid ever.

Don't forget to check out the other moms and how their keep their marriage strong!

  1. Love languages are so important! One of the reasons I put Nathan to bed at 8 is because if I didn't Alex would hardly have any time with him when he got home from school/work. We all love quality time here at my house! :)

  4. Love languages are kind of life changing especially with your spouse. I love the way you two make time for each other and your son. And home dates rock. Less stress=more fun! And cheaper of course! ;)
