I can count on my two hands the number of times Muffin has ever been watched by someone else. It’s not that we don’t trust our family with her; it’s just that we enjoy her with us. This is something that others around us see and struggle with. How can we still be so madly in love with our child ever present? How do we find time to enjoy each other and connect? I think it really depends on the couple and what each individual’s idea of love is.
Let me tell you about a date we had:
|Romance can happen anytime.|
Now, is that any less romantic if I told you we had our toddler happily worn on my chest the whole time? And to answer: no.
We believe that as parents we are appointed examples for our children. Functioning as husband and wife in front of your kids is just as important as teaching them manners. Home is where your babies learn love and how to love. We want to show our kids throughout their lives and throughout our marriage, what a healthy happy relationship looks like. If they aren’t taught how to love, respect, and care at home, where will they learn it? Who will be their examples?
