HUSBANDS play an important role in our lives. I must admit that if not because of him, I don't think I could survive life's challenges as a first-time mom.
I became a mom at the age of 26. Adjusting to what they call as "fourth trimester" was no joke. You have to deal with sleep deprivation, breastfeeding problems, and the like.
Despite all of these adjustments that we had to go through, we must value our relationship more with them.
Expressing our gratitude through simple ways that we know and we can is one way of acknowledging their efforts of being responsible. Spend quality time together through these ways:
1. Make innovative refreshments together.
If you both love desserts, try making a homemade ice cream using Natureal juice. I bet you will have fun mixing all the ingredients and eventually enjoy how it tastes.
2. Go out for a movie date or do movie marathon at home.
There are family movies that teach values, which are fundamental and helpful in honing better parenting skills and even relationship towards our children. One of the best movies is the sequel of Maleficent. I admire how each character portrays loving personality especially King John, the father of Prince Philip.
3. Treat him with his favorite food/drink.
As they say, nothing beats good food and good company. A good food doesn't always have to be expensive. As long as it is made with love, it satisfies our stomach and hearts.
4. Spend time for a staycation.
If you have extra budget, take your family out for a staycation at an affordable place to relax and unwind and temporarily forget about how hard parenting is. Try booking through RedDoorz app.
5. Pray together.
This is priceless and definitely doesn't require any schedules. Say a little prayer before you travel, eat, or sleep together. It feels good right after. Trust me.
