Hey ladies,  My name is Nathalie.  My husband's name is Jake and we have a 3 year old daughter and a 1 1/2 year old son.  About 3 months ago we moved to the Myrtle Beach area.  We had a great relationship before our move.  We were best friends and very romantic with each other...then it all disappeared.  We just got so busy with the move...getting used to the new area, taking care of the kids, my hubby was getting used to his new job.  It all piled up on us and we had no time for each other.  Well, we finally realized how bad things were getting so we both talked about it and decided we really needed to work on our relationship.  The past 2 weeks, my kids went to Maryland with their grandparents, so my hubby and I were really able to just work on us.  It has helped so much and I am so happy to say I have my best friend back.  I know things won't always be filled with romance but I think it is important to work on keeping the spark alive...that's why I made this group.  To help us find ways to put romance back into our lives.

I totally hear ya on all those things. Everything has happened so much lately and been super busy. I sometimes forget to breathe or take a shower, let a lone intimacy. I am defiantly in for some ways to spark up the relationship again!! I am Angela and my husband is Dean. WE have been together for 4 years and maried for a year. My daughter Gabriella is 15 months old.

Hello ladies...
I am Shemica I am a 25 year old stay at home mom to my 5 week old daughter Olivia. My husband James and I have been married for 6 years and needless to say we definately need to get the romance back in our marriage. We recently decided that we will both work on making time for one another and rebuilding our marriage and relationship, so I am very pleased to have found this group. Things have just been so stressful with the new baby and my husbands hectic work schedule, I am looking forward to things getting better.

Sarah, I am so glad you and the baby recovered well after your accident.  That must have been so scary.  I'm sure it is hard to add some spice into your relationship especially since all the trauma you both have endured lately.  But just remember you have to pick up the pieces at some point.  First, communication is key...you should talk to your hubby about where your relationship is now and where you want it to be as far as romance and everything else.  I don't know how you feel about leaving your 6 month old with a babysitter yet but you can have a date night every other week if your comfortable with that.  If you don't want to leave your little one with a sitter yet, try to make some alone time w/ your hubby when the kids are asleep.  Take a romantic bubble bath together with candles.  You can do a bunch of other things but the important thing is to make sure you spend at least an hour a day devoted to just the both of you.  Don't talk about the kids, or work but stuff that will bring the both of you closer together.

If your comfortable with leaving your 8 month old with a babysitter, try going on date nights at least once a month.  It's ok if you feel like it's too soon to leave your little one, just make sure to make time for the two of you.  When the kids go to bed, DO NOT turn the TV on but talk....not about the kids or work but talk about the two of you.  Drink some wine, light some candles, play some soft classical music and cuddle all night long. 
Quoting Jocelyn2706:

My name is Jocelyn. I have an almost 6 year old son and my fiance and I have an 8 month old son together. Jim is absolutely wonderful, he's the love of my life and is a wonderful father to both of the boys (he is even going to adopt my son when we get married). We are very happy together and very in love but the romance isn't what it was before the baby was born. We've only made love 6 times since the baby was born and we never go out to dinner unless it's fast food with the kids or go for our long walks or even get to cuddle together while we watch a movie at home. We want to but just find it difficult to find the time with him working so much and the kids always needing something. I'd really like to get things back to the way they once were between us. (Now don't get me wrong, I love my kids to death and wouldn't change having them for anything, I just would like a bit more romance with Jim.)
