Okay, as you know, the K-Y Brand Intimacy Experiment is all about finding new ways to connect as a couple and bring the magic back into our relationships. Day 5 is all about FUN! That's right! Today's day time activity is to find new activities to participate in with your partner, where you can unwind, relax, and get your goofiness and silliness out. Couples who can laugh together (and AT each other) have much better relationships then those that are always serious and take life too seriously.
I am married to the world's biggest goof. He is always doing things to make me laugh. He once paraded around in my pink, fuzzy Eeyore PJ pants, and he has been known to randomly break out into spontaneous dance. He's not afraid to look ridiculous, and normally, he can have me cracking up in a split second! Unless, of course, we're in public...We have been walking through WalMart or Target before and he has just started grooving in the aisles to whatever cheesy muzak happens to be playing through the overhead speakers. He has also been known to go down the toy aisle and press ALL of the buttons on any toys that make noise. In these cases, rather than laugh, I quickly walk away from him and pretend that I don't know him! But all in all, my husband is a fun guy, and we have a great time together. He is good at reminding me to stop thinking (or worrying) too much and just enjoy the moment.
Today, the K-Y Brand Intimacy Experiment has instructed us to think of some new activities that we can do together as a couple. This is going to be pretty challenging, because we rarely have any time to ourselves. With a 10 year old, (who will be 11 tomorrow!) a 14 month old, and a 1 and a half month old, it's very difficult to have any couple time at all. Most of our family lives in other states, so it's not like we have tons of grandparents offering to give us a much needed break from the kids. Plus, being a one income family, we can't really afford a babysitter. So what are some things we CAN do, even if it's limited to the confines of our own home?
Well, obviously, we're not going on any romantic getaways any time soon, and we can't go out and shoot pool, since I doubt the folks at the pool halls would want babies in their establishments. But here are a few things we CAN do:
Luckily, we have fun together, even when we're not doing much. We're always laughing and joking, and I think it really does help keep us close. Sometimes I might feel like the only adult in the house cause my hubby is such a silly guy, but hey...That's not such a bad thing!
Stay tuned tomorrow for Day 6 of the K-Y Brand Intimacy Experiment!
