Experiment Rekindle

As any set of parents know, getting back in the "love" grove is not the easiest thing to do with a little one in the mix. For the past two months Jeremy Vincent and I have been quite the moody little pair. We love each other deeply and are thankful for our many blessings in life, but the combination of sleep deprivation, added responsibilities, and less time to focus on each other has caused stress in our lives. I myself go from adoring Jeremy as the love of my life one minute to wanting to stab his eyes out the next.............and I know you have felt this way at some point even if you don't want to admit it.

Due to the magnitude of our collective fussiness lately I figured a change was in order. So I have decided to do a little experiment. Tell Jeremy and we are no longer friends. I don't want him knowing that he is my little lab rat!

For the next seven days I plan to do at least one gesture to reconnect with him in a loving way. Whether it is a hug, picking up after him without fussing, or some alone time, I vow to do one thing each day. I will report what happens as a result of that nice gesture on my blog and hopefully we will rekindle the good part of our loving relationship and the effort will come a little more naturally in my busy schedule. Wish me luck! And don't tell Mr. Vincent!

Can't wait to hear if it works! I'll babysit the boys one night and you and Jeremy can have "date night." My kids would love it!!
