How is everyone making time for their significant other? Do my best but we really haven’t spent much time together alone since our daughter was born. I’d love to know how other couples balance their relationship and being parents.

Planning, Involvement, and family. I’ve been where your at. And with my first I thought I could juggle and handle everything by myself.You know that moment where all of your family members want to help? Take them up on those offers. And plan a night out with your SO. Every Friday night we would have play the PlayStation, go out and watch a movie, or do something he has been waiting for. I know it seems like forever being a mama bear 🐻 but Saturday morning around 12 when we pick the kids up we both feel refreshed. We both got some time for one another, and a couple extra hours of sleep. It will help. So don’t be afraid to ask around in your family ring to babysit baby bear so you two can have a night out. Trust me it will be a refresher doing so. Good Luck 🍀 mama bear.

We usually get in bed each night and put a movie on and cuddle. We also plan a date night at least once or twice a month. Our youngest is almost 10 months and she sleeps in our bed. Luckily our older 3 are 12,10 and 9 so they help out a lot and our 12 year old will watch the baby while my husband and I watch a movie together. Or we'll watch a movie as a family and we'll still cuddle. Being affectionate is really important. We hug eachother several times a day. Kiss several times a day. And when its time to relax, we cuddle or at least hold hands or I'll wrap my leg around his. Spending time alone together is hard sometimes so we try to be affectionate as much as possible. There's been a time when we weren't spending any time together or being affectionate and intimate and it really put a strain on our relationship.

We spent time together every day. Make dinner, eat together, have a drink and play some video games, talk about our day.
