After we became parents a lot of things changed in our lives. Well, you know how it happens.
I’ve read tons of articles with catchy titles like “is there sex life after birth?” and even “wife or mother?”. I was preparing to repair our relationship from some kind of wound. To “restore fire of love” and blah blah blah. Some of those articles encouraged to face the change, that you will never be the same hot couple anymore.
Just a little tip. NEVER EVER READ THOSE ARTICLES!
Becoming parents, doesn’t have to mean that you are loosing something. Especially that you are loosing something private and intimate. In fact, you are not! Having a baby is the most unifying and intimate act, that I could ever imagine.
Becoming parents definitely means getting even closer.
Since Avi was born my hubby started calling me “mommy”. It happened naturally. And of course he became “daddy”.
But these change had only made us even more united. We still feel each other, talk to each other. We are still interested in each other.
The main trick is to stop perceiving the baby as a drawback. Because it’s not so. Having a baby is all about giving. Yes. But it’s about getting as well. You can obtain real unity and a true love through mutual care. But only if you’ll see this incredible opportunity.
It’s all about perception.
