If you saw yesterdays post you will know me and Dan had a little date night. It was actually a surprise birthday meal for one of my closest friends so obviously I couldn’t write about it then but it was so lovely to have an adult conversation, good (hot) food and time as a couple.
Tomorrow we will be pumpkin carving with the kids so here are some ideas on what to do with your pumpkins.
- Harry Potter (my favourite)
2. Jack Skeleton
3. Mike Wazowski
4. Cheshire Cat
5. Skull with brains
6. Bats and Stars
8. Oogie Boogie Man
As parents we often forget how important it is to not be parents for a bit, of course, we are still parents but finding time to just be Dan and Charlotte is equally as important as spending time with your kids.
When you become a parent you often lose yourself (not like Eminem) but you lose your identity, you forget who you were before you were “mum” and “dad” as much as you love those little darlings with all your heart and cherish the moments you have with them (some more than others) it can get you down just doing the same thing day in day out and not getting any “me” time or any time as a couple. Children are made out of love (mostly) so don’t forget to love your partner just as much as you did before. Make the effort to have date nights or play a board game at home when the kids are asleep. Keep working on your relationship, children don’t always bring people together, sometimes children tear couples apart. Nothing to do with the child itself but due to stress, lack of time as a couple and little effort with each other.
Today’s post is a little shorter than usual because I’m practising what I preach and we are going for a date night.
We all make time for what we feel is important in our lives
