Who says romance has to be reserved for one special day or a certain part of the week? There are plenty of ways that you can squeeze in a little romance into every single day. Everyone understands that life gets in the way. That just happens. You have to work, maybe you have kids, sick parents and who knows what else. That’s still okay; you can get in a little romance without a lot of extra work.
You still find time to take showers don’t you? I’m sure you don’t walk around stinking all the time and more then likely if you’re a parent, you shower after your kids are in bed for the night or perhaps in the morning before they even wake up. So why not jump in the shower together. You can help wash each other and catch up on what ever you might need to catch up on.
Late Dinner Once a Week
Once a week, feed the kids their own dinner and don’t eat with them. Sure you can still sit with your kids and talk about the day if that is normally what you do at the dinner table. Keep the leftover food warm for after you get the kids ready for bed. Put the kids to bed, light a few candles and have a nice dinner with just the two of you. It’s a great romantic thing to do with your spouse and without the children chiming in all the time you two can actually talk to one another. Maybe use this time to tell each other one nice thing about the other.
If the two of you happen to work near each other then why not meet for lunch? It might only be an hour long or even a little less with drive time, its still some time alone with your spouse. Maybe you could meet once a week for lunch. If you don’t work and you use a sitter, then let the sitter know you will need her once a week. Make it a weekly thing to have lunch with one another.
No Baby Talk
While you’re out on your lunch date or in your shower with your spouse or anything else that you might be doing, don’t talk about your children. You have all day to talk about the kids. Parents will often realize they haven’t even talked to their spouse in weeks unless it has been about the children and this is defiantly not romantic. So when your focusing on your “our” time and not your parenting time.
