Keeping up with the maintenance on anything from your vehicle, home, or even yourself through a visit to your doctor is mandatory! A lack of maintenance will lead to a lack in performance eventually leading to malfunction. Consider me time to be parenting maintenance.

How can you give 200 percent if you’re not putting in 100 percent for yourself? You require maintenance just like your car and home. You will only get out what you put in, so don’t sell yourself short. Think of yourself as a track star, sprinters get exhausted after so many yards but cross-country runners pace themselves. Be that cross country runner because as a parent you’re in this for the long haul. Make sure you take time out for some much needed “me time”, and don’t beat yourself up about it. Think of it this way, if you’re exhausted how will you be able to give your child 200 percent if your tank is only 20 percent full? Take your time, be patient, and consistent with carving out a little me time for yourself. And remember HE even rested on the 7th day.

Have you ever looked across the room and your heart skipped a beat? Think about how you and your mate met, nobody else probably thinks the way you met is romantic but the two of you think it should go in a book or movie. That’s the way it’s supposed to be after you have a child as well. The same love that you and your partner shared before the baby should continue after the baby is born. It will take the both of you to make the necessary adjustments to get back on track.

Date-night is super important, it can be something as simple as taking a ride to the ice cream shop, an evening drive, or sitting somewhere quiet just to be able to talk with your mate without any interruptions. It doesn’t have to be anything over the top. Just appreciate each other, let each other know the sacrifices you both have made are not going unnoticed. Communication keeps the nucleus of the family together. It’s not all about you, it doesn’t stop after the first date, first kiss, or saying I do. After you start your family that is really when the dating begins. Make plans together, continue to love each, and just be the parent!
