It’s our responsibility as mamas to “keep it real”, right? So here we go: About 98 percent of the time, relationships between husbands and wives take a hit after the baby or babies are born. As in… not as much time to hang out together and really talk, not as many spontaneous romantic moments, and not nearly as much sleep as we were used to. Mamas get pulled in a zillion different directions and sometimes all we want at the end of the day is some time alone when no one needs anything from us. Sound familiar?
If so, join us for our Thursday morning radio chat on Magic 107.9 with hosts Jennifer Irwin and Guy Westmoland. We’ll be there from about 7:40 a.m. until around 9 a.m. You can listen to the radio live on your computer by clicking HERE or on the graphic on the right.
Call in to the show because we’d love to hear your thoughts about what it’s like to go from being a couple to a full-fledged family. How did you and your spouse adjust to the change, and what do you do to keep your relationship on track, even in the midst of all those parenting duties? Call in or click the word “comment” below to post your thoughts on the subject.
We don’t claim to be relationship experts… just ordinary mamas facing everyday challenges. But we’ll do our best to talk honestly about some of the following dilemmas that lots of married moms experience after the baby is born:
- My husband? Is he still here? I’ve got baby tunnel vision right now.
- Dude, you’re in my space. (Shifting out of “Mom-Mode.”
- If he loved me, he’d unload the dishwasher! (The dangers of scorekeeping.)
- My whole life has changed, and he just doesn’t get it. (Identity Crisis)
- Will we ever get “back to normal”?
