So this coming Tuesday, April 5th, it will be my 3rd wedding anniversary. I am excited! We've made it 3 wonderful years, mainly consisting of pregnancies, without killing each other! Not that we'd want to kill each other, we're actually very happy. But I'm sure my husband is very, very glad I am no longer pregnant and he finally has his wife back! No more late night Taco Bell runs or helping me roll out of bed, and no more crazy hormones to turn me into a weeping, moody mess!
So now, here we are taking care of 2 babies and a preteen, and we get very little couple time. I can't even tell you the last time we had a date night. Dating seems like a foreign concept when you have 2 babies well under the age of 2. Our life is pretty much consumed with dirty diapers, feedings, baby-snuggling, and the newly discovered temper-tantrums from my little diva who loves to get her way. Add taking care of my oldest and maintaining the house to the mix, and we really don't get much time to ourselves, unless it's to collapse into each others' arms at the end of a long day....And in that case, we usually end up passing out.
So I am trying to find something to do with my husband on our anniversary that can be done surrounded by babies...Not at all an easy task! Yes, I can make a killer dinner for him. But I love to cook, and he gets home-cooked meals on a daily basis, so I don't know how special that will be. Of course going out is more than likely not going to happen. We don't have a sitter that's very close by, and I am NOT taking a 16 month old and a 3 month old out for what should be a nice, romantic dinner. I don't think the other patrons would appreciate that too much,lol. And I don't want to watch a movie on TV. I spend enough time watching him zone out to the television, and I truly believe that the TV is the Jack Kevorkian of romance.
So I am at a loss as to how to make it special. He actually has the day off, which will be nice. I will at least get to spend the day with him, even if we can't really do anything super-special. Do any of you have babies very close in age? How do you celebrate anniversaries with babies in the house? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
