A lot of moms say "the kids come first." But Ericka Souter, Editor of The Stir, is here to help us figure out how we can balance our priorities to leave time for Mom and Dad too.

There isn't t anything that happens in my life that I need to choose my children or my husband! My kids have their basic needs day to day,that's a given! We also focus on our marriage we believe in a strong,healthy foundation that keeps our family together! And if there is time were we need to take time for our marriage,kids don't suffer from it! They enjoy mom&dad 'dating'! :-)

I think they both come equally in my life. Dd's needs are met but she isn't the only thing we focus on. We still focus on us as a couple and have our little bit of alone time here and there even if it is just conversation while dd is sleeping (she's 8 months).
