time alone!

All of the boys took a nap at the same time today, and my husband and I actually got some time alone! It was wonderful. I miss those quiet moments. I guess I never really appreciated them enough before we had kids. That's just the way it was, and honestly at times I found it kind of boring. Funny. Thinking back I am glad we waited as long as we did to have kids. We rarely get time together, just me and him, now days. But we had 10 years to stock piled those moments of togetherness before we had kids. So now when we barely have a moment to spare for each other, we can pull from the memories of a time when it was just the two of us, and it helps keep that spark alive. Sometimes when the house is really loud, and the boys are everywhere, getting into everything, my husband and I just look at each other and those memories, and the stolen moments we find, flood back into our minds and pull us together,. Keep us going strong. I am more in-love with him now then the day we met, but the day to day noise has a tendency to drowned that out. When it's quiet and he turns his beautiful eyes to me, I can think of nothing else.

I can totally relate to this! Husband and I were married nearly seven years before the birth of our first child. I've never regretted waiting and having all that time together before we introduced children to our union. Every so often amidst the chaos of child-rearing, we look at each other wistfully and say, "Remember when we used to be able to take an entire day off once in awhile and just veg and have a movie marathon on the couch (and the movies were NOT animated or made by Disney!)"

Wouldn't change a thing in our current lives, but I'm fond the memories of the "old days" as well.
