"Sometimes you need to find the calm in the chaos.
One day, you'll wake up and ask yourself, what am I doing? Why doesn't this feel right?
Thats when you realize your, 'What would you like to do for fun today? Where should we go out tonight? What would you like to talk about today?' turns into, 'Will you change the baby's diaper? Can you please help me clean? Will you get up with the baby this time?' and suddenly youâ€™re disconnected from the easy going, free loving adventure your life once was. Youâ€™re exhausted, youâ€™re disheartened by the lack of attention you show each other. Most of the time, the children come first but don't forget where it all began.
The need for constant attention is real, if you don't believe me, ask my children. Don't forget that you are human too and the feeling of being forgotten is also real.
Take some time out of your day to have a conversation about anything besides the kids, work or money. Ask your partner how their day has been, and listen to what they have to say. Do not minimize the burden of stress each of you carry on a daily basis, don't compare pain.
Always, talk about the first night you met. Remember that spark that lit your romance on fire.

A simple, "I love it when your hair is all messy" comment can brighten a day quicker than the kids can destroy a room. A quick kiss on the forehead or tight hug around the waist while you cook dinner to let them know you appreciate them.
