I mentioned in this post at the end of last year that I was really excited to be hosting this linky with four other lovely bloggers (and their long suffering partners, ha!). There really are hardly any pictures of just Tom and I and it's something I want to rectify in 2014.
Although we kind of expected it to some extent, I guess I wasn't fully prepared as to how all consuming the love for your little one is when you become a parent. Truthfully there are times when I didn't put as much effort into our relationship as I could have. For me I struggled with 'me time' and felt that being there and looking after the small person in our lives meant when he was finally asleep I didn't have the energy for anyone else and that was a hard process to work through. There were only two occasions in our first year of parenthood that we spent without Wilf and they were both for less than two hours!
I think we now worked out a good balance and although date nights are few and far between we even managed a night away a few months ago! That being said we have worked out we can still spent quality time together if we plan it right, a hot chocolate date whilst Wilf is napping in the pushchair can do the world of good!
I do hope you like the linky and join in too!
