I bet you’re busy. Who isn’t these days? We all have overbooked schedules and a to-do list a mountain high.
You keep saying you’re going to forget the to-do and just spend time with your husband, but it never happens. You keep putting it off, and putting it off….
Even if you have a few moments, after the kids are in bed, to spend time together you’re both too exhausted to bother.
Oh mama, I get it.
It’s rough with the demands of life, your kids, your home. You get busy. And more times than you’d like to admit, your marriage gets put on the back burner.
You need to stop this. Now. Seriously.
I know it’s hard, but you need to carve out some time to spend with your hubs. You have to. Your marriage depends on it.
6 Meaningful Ways to Spend More Time With Your Husband
Talk before bed
Every night, do this. Tell each other little things that happened in your day. The baby pushed up, or your oldest drew a beautiful flower. You managed to get all the errands done without a meltdown from the kids.
It’s so important to have a conversation like normal human beings and this is the absolute best way to do it.
Talk in the morning
I make a habit of starting my day BEFORE MY KIDS GET UP. While they may not be up before daddy leaves, I am. We can take even just 5 minutes in the AM to sit down together. Have a cup of coffee. And talk about our plans for the day.
It means he can leave for work with a smile knowing he saw his wife and actually got to talk to her before he had to start his day.
Go for a walk
Even if you have to drag the kids with you. Go for a walk. Go somewhere where you feel comfortable letting them run just ahead of you. You guys can hang back and chit chat. Hold hands! Watch your kiddos just up ahead having fun and enjoy the moment.
Schedule a regular date night
Once a month, plan a night together. Get a sitter and go out. Dates are so important. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant. Simple works just fine.
Do this dishes together
I love washing the dishes with my husband. It’s something so simple. But, it invites us to work together as a team (isn’t that what marriage is supposed to be?). And it opens the door for small talk.
Write each other little love notes
I love little love notes. It’s simple, but it makes me feel special. I know the same is true for my husband. So, leave a little note on the door or in their lunch pail.
It’s a moment you can share without being right there and let’s them know they’re loved and appreciated.
