Between changing diapers and household chores, dates with your spouse might seem like something from the past now that you’re a new parent. But making time to rekindle the romance is just as important in my book. Five months after our son was born, the hubby and I finally went on a date. Here are a few tips for planning a date with your honey and enjoying it too!

Our son was born with a serious head of hair. Flock of Seagulls type hair. So much so, nurses at the hospital were stopping by our room just to see the baby with “all the hair.”
Needless to say, haircuts are quite the topic of discussion in our house.

My son recently turned 3 years old. Originally I wasn’t going to have a big party for him, since we’ve had big parties the past two years (a nautical first birthday and a safari second birthday). Throwing parties takes a lot of work, so I was planning on keeping it simple this year — but then he ever so sweetly asked if he could have a Spiderman party, and I couldn’t say no!
Thank goodness Spiderman is pretty popular right now, so planning it was a cinch. I was able to find a lot of Spiderman goods at our local dollar store and we chose to have pizza (easiest party food ever!) for everyone to eat. Since it’s also summertime in Miami, we decided to have a lot of outside water games for the kids to enjoy, including a big inflatable water slide.
Liam is recently obsessed with superheroes and his favorite is, obviously, Spiderman. It really warmed my heart to see my son so happy.
Check out a few snapshots from Liam’s Spiderman party.

I don’t really remember telling my oldest daughter that we were having a second child. She wasn’t quite two when we found out, and I’m not sure she really understood the whole thing (although she loved going along to hear the baby’s heartbeat at all my doctor appointments).
But this time, we knew she’d understand what we were talking about.
And we really hoped she’d be excited.
