12 Days of Romance on Helicopter Mom and Just Plane Dad #KYTrySomethingNew

The holidays are hectic around our house.  Even though we only have one child, our entire extended family lives within a few miles, so there’s always an event to go to. Since our family is close-by, eliminating the need for vacations, we don’t typically take any downtime from work either.  Yes, it’s a recipe for disaster.

 

After 23 years of marriage, this isn’t our first holiday “rodeo”.  Just Plane Dad and I have come up with ways to conquer the chaos of the season without killing each other.  We go out of our way to find small intimate moments that we can share together.  Just us; without kids, work or distractions.

If that’s not possible, we offer small tokens of our love to each other so we don’t forget the reason we’re together.  These random acts of kindness are like our own little version of holiday giving.  They bring us closeness and intimacy when our world is turned upside down with hustle and bustle and foster a better relationship between us.

The last few days of holiday shopping at Walmart is when overload usually kicks in.  Hasn’t every Mom had a meltdown in the wrapping aisle?  Here’s a tip, take a deep breath and saunter over to the intimate items aisle-don’t worry it won’t be crowded. Pick up a bottle of the K-Y® TOUCH® and smile to yourself at ways to use it.  I bought mine with this $2 off coupon and can’t wait to surprise hubby.  Maybe he won’t be so afraid to shop with me next time if he sees what’s in it for him!

Add what you bought to your own little version of the advent calendar.  This is an easy way to take a break from the stress of the holiday and get a bit romantic.  Thoughtful items can be added to make it special for your spouse.  Since ours will be romantic ideas, we’ll simply put different tasks on each day.  Imagine how exciting it will be to know a surprise is waiting each evening?  Who needs Santa?
