Summer is all about family and spending quality time with the ones you love. And the more skills you develop the more time you invest in your family and your relationships. First Things First (FTF) is an award winning not-for-profit organization dedicated to strengthening families
Below is one movie I found from FF that spoke to me and I wanted to share my thoughts about it with you.
Date Your Spouse:
With 3 young children at home the idea of getting out of the house with out a pint sized tagalong, or 3, is about as possible as seeing a UFO. Robert and I are coming up on our 8th year anniversary and I tend to laugh abut our ideas of how we would spend a weekend away at least once a month just to reconnect. Oh to be young and unaware again . It was a fabulous dream full of great intentions, but it became just that, a dream. Finding a reliable babysitter you can trust is about as hard as finding a needle in a haystack. I’m sure those of you with children can relate. BUT the idea of dating your spouse isn't something we have just tosses away either. Its just a bit more complicated with children in the mix. *I couldn’t help but notice they overlooked the parent aspect of dating in the video. So we don’t spend weekends away with each other, although I still hold out hope that maybe it will happen for our anniversary, but we still find ways to ‘Date’. Sometimes its as simple as putting the kids to bed 30 minutes earlier and watching a movie with each other. We try to go to plays together or steal a night out when a babysitter falls in our laps. We find ways to keep the spark from our dating days alive today.
