The best thing we can do for our two kids is strengthen our marriage.
So 3-4 mornings a week we run together.
They may not remember these specific moments someday, but I believe they will be thankful we invested in each other.
On airplanes they always give the safety talk where they tell adults to put on their oxygen mask first, before their child. You cannot help the child if you cannot breathe.
We have to put the oxygen mask on our marriage first. Then we can be good parents….not the other way around.
Part of this parenting journey is recognizing the shifts.
We no longer have babies and toddlers. We are in a shift where we can choose to diverge or converge.
One definition of converge is to “incline toward each other.” I like that.
We are choosing to converge and they will thank us someday.
It’s definitely about taking care of yourself, so your best version can show up for others 🙂

I couldn’t agree more! We cannot give our best to others until we have taken care of ourselves!
