I have never realized how much a baby changes things within a couple. I guess for starters being that I never experienced this with Charli Beth, it is such a new thing to me as well as it is to Curtis. I never realized that being so tired but not actually realizing that you are tired can make you grumpy....like crazy grumpy. Trust me. Because I am and have been crazy (with a capital C that is) lately.
I never really thought about all of the struggles that you go through with money or small spats that come out of stress. I just thought it was simply because you did not love someone, because that is all that I have ever known. But now I see the other side of this. I see this man that I love so very deeply and always will, but we face mountains each day of things that are new to us. We sometimes do not know how to deal with them and sometimes we must agree to disagree. Although, we are two of the most hard headed, stubborn people in the world we seem to always make it through to the next day and for that I am so very grateful.
There is nothing in this world that I want more than to be the best Wife and Mommy as possible. We all know that we are not perfect, and that we all fail especially in the beginning of new things. I may not be a "new Mommy" but I am a new Mommy of two, and I am most definetely a new Wife. So lets be honest, I am getting my tail whipped and feel as if I am sinking most days rather than keeping my head above the water. But I want to do better and I must do better, not only for me but for my husband and children as well.
I have had such inspiring words from family and friends that time together is a must. Yes, I am meaning date nights! I have been such a baby hog and the thought of leaving Bryar whenever he can just be with me makes me feel a little nutty but I see that it is something that I need to do. I need time wether is for a few hours or for an afternoon to focus on my husband and give my husband the attention that he needs, and that we both deserve. It seems that so many of us get such few date nights.
So my question is; When you and your husband finally get a night/afternoon out what are your favorite things to do?!
