I just want to share with you something that I find funny recently. Well, we have our firstborn now, a daughter, who is almost 4 weeks old. My husband and I are still adjusting to this wonderful addition in our lives. She sleeps with us in our bed, and she is in the middle. But of course, we don’t think of her as getting in the way.
Anyway, one person in a forum asked “what is the first thing you say to your lover in the morning?”
Then I got to reminiscing that I would often hug my husband, kiss him, and tell him good morning and I love him, etc. etc.
But now with the baby, the first thing he asks is “Will you breastfeed or will I prepare the bottle?” He usually wakes up first when the baby cries, then I follow, so that is his usual line for the last 3 weeks or so.
But then after we have done everything for the baby and she is fast asleep, we try to make time for each other and give each other undivided attention, even if it is just for a few minutes. We do the same routine, hug, kiss, and say sweet words to each other so that we do not neglect our marriage.
Also, I keep on praying for my husband, much like what I used to when we were still only a couple.
