Our New Normal
Our New Normal
05/28/2020

I've been a stay-at-home mom for the past 14 years.  We have four children, ranging in age from 7 to 14.  Before this global pandemic and quarantine our lives we really busy.  Too busy, in fact.  Kids were overly involved with sports, school, dance and school activities.  We rarely ate dinner as a family.  I ran the kids all over the area.  Everyone was overwhelmed, miserable and exhausted.

Now, we eat dinner together, and the kids help prepare and clean up our meals.  They've learned how to fix toilets, do laundry, clean bathrooms and pull down shelves.  They're outside right now, playing silly games, swinging on swings jumping on our trampoline and having water-balloon fights with each other.

Best of all, I'm putting my marriage first, which I haven't in a long time.  I've taken your Marriage 101 course and read your books, but I somehow got caught up in the rat race of trying to be the perfect mom and I forgot about my husband.  I've re-watched the course and was reminded that I need to put my husband and our marriage as my top priority.  We now have coffee together every morning, we take walks in the afternoon, watch shows together and have more sex.  He's much more relaxed and happier.  Thank you for reminding me again that I am my husband's girlfriend.
