Life as a parent can be demanding. Whether you work outside the home or stay at home. Our children touch us, sit on us, even hang on us. We spend the day cleaning messes, answering questions and dealing with problems. By the time the kids are finally in bed the last thing we want to do is be touched yet again. At a time when we should now be focusing on our spouse and marriage, we are ready to crash.
Caring for our children and building a relationship with them is so very important. But it is temporary. One day they will be grown and move out. And that day, we will find ourselves alone with our husband.
Now, I am not telling you to spend less time with your children. Please do not misunderstand. Take care of them. Be a good mother to them. But remember to save some energy and time for your husband.
