Importance of Couples Time...

On Tuesday I got the opportunity to have a date day with my wife.  It has been a long time since we got to spend significant alone time together.  While I love my children, the opportunity to go for a walk together and not have to worry an assortment of children related paraphernalia and keeping a constant vigilance on someone else's behaviors and movements.  It was nice to be able to hold hands with someone, that I don't pretend to know where their hands have been.  Further, it was nice to have a dinner whereby I didn't have to 'walk' someone around a restaurant because they are bored.

Most importantly, it was nice to spend some time reconnecting with each other.  In the parenthood world it is easy to lose focus on being a couple when your so focused on being a family.  It felt incredible to spend quality time in which the conversations didn't involve organizing schedules, homework or chores.  It was a nice reminder of just how special that last 13 years has been.

So thanks to both sets of grandparents for keeping the kids overnight.  I know it is challenging for you.
