Remember those days when you were dating and you couldn’t wait to see your significant other? Those timeless dates where you just kept falling more in love? Keeping the spark alive may take a bit more effort now that baby(ies) have entered the picture, but it doesn’t have to end with baby nor does it have to break the bank.

5 Everyday Ways To Bring Back Some Romance

  1. Write a love note and put it in his lunch. It doesn’t have to be long. It can even be a silly word that has meaning and memories only between you.
  2. Find something to compliment her on. She will appreciate that you still find her attractive post baby.
  3. Stop to take the time to really kiss each other when you come home or leave for work.
  4. Remember how you used to hold hands when you went for a walk? You now are pushing a stroller & have a toddler in tow, but you can be creative on how to hold hands and baby.
  5. Your day is hectic, but take a minute to think about your partner and what you love about him/her. Send a short text saying how much you can’t wait to see him/her at the end of the day.

    Eye contact is very important. We often talk & do household chores etc & focus our attention away from our spouse. We must sit or stand facing our spouse when we talk to them & make that personal eye contact. Look at each other’s eyes & see the color of his or her eyes & see the twinkle & see that light dance off her/his eyes. Make the connection & keep it for some time.

    Every night we spend a few minutes talking and cuddling before bed. Sometimes this is done on the couch, sometimes in bed, but it helps me keep more connected with my hubby.

    I always make sure to compliment my husband every time he looks nice or helps me out. I think that really helps keep a strong relationship πŸ™‚

    3, 4 & 5 would be great.. if hubby would only realize lol. He’ll hold hands if I initiate & kiss if I initiate, but texting would never occur to him. And he just isn’t very romantic or sentimental, so initiation isn’t his strongest suite.

    Mrs. Smitty,
    Thankful you are initiating to keep the spark alive! πŸ™‚

    Yay for you Melissa! It’s the “small” things that make all the difference.

    I love your 5 ways, and it is vital to any relationship. Everyone needs to be nurtured. I once heard a counselor say anything less than nurturing is abuse.

    Thank you Carol. So true that everyone needs to be nurtured. So important to remember that our relationships teach out children so much!

    Those are great tips! It’s also nice to have a date night once a month just to reconnect without the kiddos.

    Great tips!! It’s nice to connect with your husband or wife, without the kids once in a while!! Love Date Nights!!

    These are super tips. It is all too easy to let a relationship sour when both parents are juggling work, kids and life in general

  14. MichelleH August 1, 2011 at 10:11 am #

    Thanks R Hicks – we couldn’t agree more.

  15. MichelleH August 1, 2011 at 10:12 am #

    While date nights aren’t the easiest to pull off, they are well worth the effort!

  16. MichelleH August 1, 2011 at 10:13 am #

    We agree Kerry!

    I love the note idea! Lucky for me, after six kids, my husband and I are still madly in love. Maybe that’s why we have six kids, lol.

    Awww that’s sweet Melanie!
