Union and Family
Choosing the right balance between spending time with your kids as well as your husband is challenging. Naturally, I'm together with my children more since we are dwelling together. I simply see my husband at the evening/nighttime as well as the weekends. On the rare moments we have together. We cherish it and love one another. To make certain our relationship remains strong we make sure to maintain the 5 stages of familiarity.

With this kind of busy lifestyle, I need to have priorities to balance marriage and family. This means you sometimes miss your favorite show, or don't always have to go out with your friends. And this also applies to my marriage. At least once a month, Andrew and I go out on a weekend date. If my parents can't help, we hire a babysitter. I run a background check on Kiwi searches before bringing anyone around my children.
When Andrew and I do have a date, we usually move to a great dinner or a movie. Our favourite form of food is probably Italian, I know I could eat pasta every day. It is also a nice shift in my cooking the majority of the week. If we aren't in the mood to really go out to dinner, then we all choose a picture. The final one we watched together was A Quiet Place which was really scary. I had been grasping the pop corn cup the entire time in anticipation.

Just as we'd like to really go out on adult dates, we love going out with these kiddies. Ordinarily for walks in the park and playing on the swing sets. Andrew gets helpless from Chuck E. Cheese so we stay away out of this. Though I love their pizza, but union is just a compromise right?
