How to Keep the Spark Alive After Having Children
It can be hard to keep the spark alive in your relationship after you have children. The demands of children can take so much out of you that you just don’t feel like you have anything left for your partner. If the attraction in your relationship has fizzled out, there are things you can do to rekindle your romance.
Having a date night is essential to keep the romance alive in your relationship, especially after you have children. Find a babysitter for the kids, and have a night alone together. You can go out to dinner or have a romantic night in. The key is to enjoy each others company, and don’t talk about the kids. Ideally, you should have a date night once a week.
Take Advantage of Nap Time
If your children are still young enough to take naps, resist the urge to catch up on the housework and have an afternoon delight. The change in your routine will help spice things up.
Sending naughty texts can help you keep the spark alive. It only takes a moment to send a text that will put a smile on your partner’s face and have them anticipating bed time.
It is important to stay connected to each other, and touch is a great way to connect. A pat on the back, a kiss, or a hug can all let your partner know you love them and make you feel more connected.
Take Care of Yourself
It’s hard to feel sexy if you haven’t showered in days. Take a little time to put on makeup, perfume, sexy underwear, or whatever makes you feel sexy.
These tips are sure to keep the fire burning. Enjoy your children, but don’t forget to enjoy each other too.
