  • truthfully it's kind of hard!!

    there is times when me and dh would put a cartoon in for the kids and step outside and walk around the yard (our oldest is 11 so she is able to keep a eye out and get us if needed).

    my dh works 12 hr days so i know how that is. on his days off i don't do but the basic cleaning. and try and set with him and watch a movie or snuggle. when he goes back to work i do have extra work i have to do, but it's well worth it. because the days he works i don't really get to see him.

  • sometimes we don't spend time together at the end of the day. after i get my kids to bed, dh and i may play some video games or watch tv for an hour or 2 until we go to bed (dh has to be up at 4:30) we usually spend more time together on the weekends, after the kids are in bed, b/c he dosen't have to get up early

  • My husband and I make it a point to watch at least one TV show or one movie every night together. When the kids go to bed we snuggle up on the couch and watch TV together. On weekends we have more availability to do so, but during the week it's when the kids are in bed that we get time.

  • If you make your DH do some things around the house, like cooking, cleaning the house or helping out with the kids. You will have enough energy for your DH.

  • I try to get all my cleaning and dinner prep done in the morning. This way, I may be able to sneak a nap when the baby is sleeping and before I pick up the other kids from school. When dinner time comes around, I have a clean kitchen and just have to pop it in the oven. Then, I make my 16 year old do dishes after dinner :). A lot of times the baby won't go to sleep until we do so we just hang out on the couch and snuggle. On the weekends I usually can sneak an hour or two upstairs folding laundry in my locked bedroom plus a nap so it keeps me refreshed for the week.

  • My husband and I usually try to have a date night at least once an month with no kids. It seems to help us.

  • Well getting dh to some things around the house would be nice..but he works 10 hrs a day sometimes more depending on what he has to do soo...by the time he would be home to clean or whatever that would be a problem for me..lol..so as nice as that sounds..i think i'll stick to being the house wife while he works and look for another plan..lol
