ADD A LITTLE BIT OF ‘SPICE’ THIS VALENTINE’S DAY
No, we are not talking about dinner at your favourite Curry Restaurant (although it may be a good place to start, nor are we referring to being heavy-handed with the garlic)!
Being a Mom on Valentine’s Day sometimes makes things a bit more challenging, especially if you have planned a lovely romantic dinner and just as you are about to serve your delicious meal, baby decides it’s time for a quick nappy change.
PROBABLY MORE THAN A WEE-WEE AWAITS
What’s more, it’s probably not only going to be a wee-wee but guaranteed, we could escalate that to an impromptu baby bath, with duckies and all!
Oh well, those are the joys of Motherhood, which we wouldn’t change for anything in the world! Well, not until they become teenagers!
SUGAR AND SPICE
Valentine’s Day can be really exciting – especially for new couples.
For couples who are a little more ‘seasoned’ (oh no, not seasoning again!) it can sometimes feel that celebrations have become a little stale, boring or worse, even predictable!
Regardless, adding a bit of spice goes a long way, so If you feel that this ‘day of love’ just doesn’t do it for you anymore, it’s definitely time to spice it up!
ONCE A YEAR IS NOT ENOUGH
Couples need to show appreciation and affection to each other all year round and not just on Valentine’s Day. Buying flowers or chocolates and going out for dinner is great, but that alone once a year, is not adequate to sustain a loving relationship.
LET’S HAVE SOME FUN
- Book a getaway
If the 14th of February happens to fall on an inconvenient day, choose a place together ON the 14th and go later in the year. It will give you some time to arrange a babysitter and something to look forward to together
- Hit the road
Go for a nice drive. Choose somewhere scenic but safe where you can spend special time together, chatting and focusing on each other.
- Start All Over Again (This is cute)
‘Pick Each other up’. Arrange a babysitter and leave home separately. Meet your partner at a bar or restaurant and go over and offer them a drink and let the games begin. Stay up late, dance, laugh! The kids will appreciate you even more when you get home!
- Be different
Get a few friends who know you both well and ask them to write down a few suggestions of something new that you can do together as a family. A sure way to get everyone out of their little comfort zones
- Re-create your first date
This one depends on whether the first date was good or not. Some first dates are disastrous! But hey, you have managed to get this far together, so it couldn’t have been that bad. If it was, now’s the time to remember those ‘butterflies’ and fix it!
- Work towards a common goal
Put together a list of ‘to do’s’ and pick something off the list to do this year. Plan how you will accomplish it and start working together towards it. Working towards a common goal is exciting and lots of fun for the whole family
- Create a fantasy bedroom
So, for this one, you don’t even need to leave home. Decorate your bedroom to set a romantic tone. Dim the lights, light candles and play some romantic music. Maybe even some rose petals sprinkled on the bed?
Hopefully, this time no nappy changes or impromptu baths will be needed!
FEBRUARY IS THE MONTH OF LOVE
AND MOMMY WELLNESS LOOKS FORWARD TO WELCOMING THE WHOLE FAMILY!
