Today's question is...
With all the demands of working and motherhood, how do you manage to make time for your husband?
I must admit that now that my kids are older finding time to spend with my husband is much easier than it used to be.
I am blessed to have every other Friday off from work and so we spend those Fridays together. Sometimes we just hang out at the house and watch movies. Sometimes we go out shopping and to lunch. Sometimes we use the time to clean. But whatever we do, we do it together.
We also try to run errands together (like grocery shopping or dropping off/picking up the kids). Most evenings just before bed time we retire to our room and watch TV together and spend time unwinding. That is usually the time when we talk about whatever is going on at the moment and talk about whatever is on our schedule for that week. One of the blessings of having teens in our family is, we can leave the kids at home alone when we want to go out for an impromptu date night. Which we do on occasion when we find that we are feeling disconnected or just missing one another.
When our kids were smaller it was a lot harder. Thank goodness for grandparents and family who babysat for us during that stage!
Making sure that you get quality time with your husband/wife is very important no matter what stage of life you are in. It's not something to be neglected. This is a very good question. Thanks Julia!
