1. My body is an uncomfortable, ever-changing baby factory. Physical love can be more difficult. Romance through wine or sushi is out. Some days my moods or fatigue can make it hard for us to get out to do anything at all. Its easy for things to get centered around me and the baby, but important to keep reminding myself that hubby has needs too. I need to help him get recharged so he can keep nurturing me.
2. Our money-munching addition will be here soon. :) This means we need to get creative about dates-without-dollars. Here are some of my favorites:
|Have an indoor picnic|
|Or an outdoor one|
|Take a walk with the pets out in nature or through the city. You could stop for |
Starbucks, or make a thermos of hot cocoa before you leave. Baby-talk is off
limits, and end the day with some good physical love time.
|Make a date all about him for once. Participate in his favorite activity and make his favorite dinner/ dessert.|
Here are some sites with good lists of cheap date ideas:
|From The RMTC|
|From The Gentleman's Corner|
|From Six Sisters' Stuff|
|From Bible Money Matters|
