I recently invited you to ask me questions to help jump-start my blog with some good topics. (Anyone else who has a question is welcome to ask it in the comments here or in the previous post.)
Question #10, from the Gal over at One Gal’s Musings: What do you and Tim do as husband/wife (as opposed to as mom/dad)?
Yeah. We don’t really get much time where we’re not on duty as mom/dad. We do enjoy watching the TV shows mentioned in a previous post, and we watch those almost exclusively without the kids. In the evenings after the kids go to bed, we kind of like to do our own thing. I mean, Tim is welcome to help me answer questions on car-seat.org, and I’m sure he’d be happy if I wanted to play Xbox with him, but really? Nah.
Once in a while my folks will take both big kids for the weekend, and then we enjoy going out to dinner and a movie, but that doesn’t happen very often. (And now that we have the baby, it’s not likely that we’ll get rid of all the kids at the same time for quite a while.)
Good grief, we sound like the lamest couple on earth. Perhaps we’ll get more exciting when the kids get older and we’re not actually “on” as Mom and Dad all the time. (And it should be noted that we do enjoy spending time with our kids, so it’s not as though every second of the day is drudgery.)
