Five Minute Friday: Connect

Five Minute Friday

On Fridays a group of people who love to throw caution to the wind and just write gather to share what five minutes buys them.  Just five minutes.  Unscripted.  Unedited.  Real.  Check out mine below, and then see others at  Five Minute Friday.

Here we go...Connect

After Lil' Miss Goose came along it became clear to me that it could be hard to really connect with Daddy Goose with all that babies and four year olds require.  A couple of months ago I bought a book called, "21 Days to Loving your Man on Purpose."  I bought it on a whim in the grocery store checkout and it has taken me a while to get through the short 100 page book.  It was, however, one of my better book purchases.  It was a great way to get some ideas on how to connect with Daddy Goose in a way that he needs.  In a way that I need.  I haven't done the projects yet, but I definitely intend to.  For now, I am working on ensuring that Daddy Goose and I have quality time together.  Whether its watching a movie he wants to watch or having a cold beer ready for him when he walks through the door after a hot day so we can talk about the craziness of our days.

Daddy Goose is THE MOST important, my life.  Making sure that we connect is my number one priority.  He does so much for our family, the least I can do is ensure I'm doing my part in our relationship.  Besides, I've always told him that we're going to be together until one of us we might as well make this a meaningful, fun and happy relationship.

I wonder, how we will connect today.  What do you do to connect with your spouse?

  1. Visiting from Gypse Mama's blog.

    I think this is great. It can be so hard to hold on to that connection when life gets in the way of the reasons you connected in the first place. Good luck with your projects and connecting again with your man. =)

  2. Love that! Especially the line "Daddy Goose is THE MOST important, my life." I think with kids it easy to make it look as though the kids are the most important. But as important as they are, they will grow up and they will leave. And the relationship between mama and daddy will still be there. I hope that I can keep my love story burning as I can tell you are trying to do so that as our kids grow there is no doubt of our love for one another. And so that when they are gone, and we are left just the two of us, we know how to love and treat one another. Thanks for this!

  3. Thank you ladies! I love LisaJo's 5 Minute Friday, don't you?
