Now that Miss F has come along, we find ourselves spending much less quality time together. Many days I hand her off to him and work on house work I couldn't get done with her, or space out if it's been a rough day.
The one exception has been Wednesdays. On Wednesdays, we walk to the local library, then to the farmers' market. It's a nice time, but the farmers' market isn't open year round, and at some point it'll be too cold to walk. To complicate things, I plan on going back to my part time job in a couple of weeks, and *B* starts school again soon. So one evening a week is really going to be the most we get together.
My mom took Miss F for the night on Friday, and *B* and I got to have that quality time once again. It was amazingly refreshing. It really helped us solidify the fact that we need to be purposeful in our time together. While Miss F is too young for family board games, we can try to come up with things that the three of us can do together. For a little while during *B*'s paternity leave, I would listen to him read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy to Miss F. That might be our FHE until we can come up with a new plan for FHE with a wee one.
What did you do for FHE when the kids were little?
