Hey girls, I need some woman to woman support here.
Terri, you definately aren't the only one. Right after Breanna was born, it almost seemed like I didn't care less whether or not there was time for intimacy. Now as the time is passing and Breanna is getting easier to manage, there seems to be more time for us. Granted, I only have one living child, and I'm a SAHM, motherhood is exhausting. Maybe take one night a week and cook a special dinner for the two of you, or go out to dinnner as a family. DH and I did and still do that and even though we may not be as initmate as we'd both like, we do have a chance to talk and converse like a couple should. Is there any one in your area that you could leave your children with for a few hours on the weekend so you and your DH could spend some time together? My sister is really close by so whenever me and DH both feel the need to have some time together without baby, she's always more than happy to baby sit for a couple hours. It took me a while to get used to the idea of leaving Breanna with her alone but once I was able to, DH and I really got to spend some good time together.
I hope you all recover quickly from your colds!! Being sick isn't fun for anyone!
Hey girl first of all let me say I am so glad everyone is doing well. I haven't spoken to you in a while and glad to hear from you. i can only suggest what me and my husband do. I am extremely busy with school and him with school & work and 2 kids of course are busy but we have never let that intimacy stop. We have always said that is important to us and one extremely important way we show our love. Even if we have to wait till the kids go to bed n just lay in the bed and hold each other kissing we do. When Tj was first born I was there definately but as he got older it got easier. I guess we just find at least 30 minutes out the day most days just to sit and talk or kiss or even better. I know that you are just tired because taking care of a baby is not easy but it will get better as you know with Andy! So good hearing from you girl!
