Last weekend my partner asked my mum if she would like to have Kory for us for a few hours so that we could have a little break and spend some time together.
Of course she was delighted to! She loves spending time with Kory.
We were child free for the first time in ages and not a clue what to do! After much discussion we ended up heading into town, we didn’t know what for or what we were going to do but once we got there we ended up going for a burger and a milkhake. After that we just had a walk round the shops.
It was nice being able to sit down and enjoy our food without restraining a toddler, it was a nice change being able to walk round the shops browsing without having to hurry and hearing someone else’s kid whining instead of our own. It was nice to just get out of the house and to enjoy each other’s company.
We love spending time together as a family, we’re always finding things for us to do and places to go together but it’s also nice to spend time together as a couple. We’re not just someone’s mum and dad, we’re still someone’s partner, someone’s friend, ect. When you become parents it’s so easy to forget about your other half and your relationship. Work, parenting and life all get in the way and before you know it it’s been months since you last did anything or went anywhere when it was just the two of you. And that time is important.
We’ve both agreed that we’re going to try and make more of an effort to spend time with each other. Even if it’s just sticking a film on once Kory has gone to bed.
