  • Looks like you've got weekend evenings together. After dinner time tell your teen to go away. lol no really. tell her it's time you and her dad have some special time together. Rent a movie and chill out on the couch eating popcorn. or pizza.
    Find pics of your wedding and look through all of them all over again.
    Go for a family picnic dinner at the park.
    Lay down in your backyard with blankets or sleeping bags and gaze up at the stars together.

  • Watch the sunrise together one morning ...or watch the sunset together one evening.

  • Outstanding Love's ideas are good. You just do what you can squeeze in for now and promise yourselves to make more time in the next few years when the babies are less demanding. I have twin toddlers and a teenager, and I cannot imagine doing anything but sleeping with any freetime together if I also had an infant. You guys just have to realize this is temporary and it will get easier in time.
