Saturday afternoons are for hubby and me. Well. In theory. Cause we don’t always manage to make them happen. But we try.
We try to take half a day per week ‘off’. A few hours, during which we are just him. And me. This can seem selfish. But really saved our couple. At some point, we were losing ourselves. And each other.
Cause, yes, being a parent is wonderful. But it’s a fact that being a parent sometimes makes you forget that you are also a husband. A wife. And so much more…
So, we decided that Saturday afternoons would be for us. For him. And me. For the two people we used to be. Before we became a mummy. And a dad.
Do I feel guilty for not being with the kids during this time? The answer is yes. Terribly. But I also know that they are in good hands. That they are having fun. And that they love seeing us happy and relaxed when we are together again in the evening.
