Spousal Sign Language: Staying in Touch After Having Kids


The other day, my husband came up behind me while I was chopping vegetables for dinner. He wrapped his arms around me and snuggled into my neck. I said, “Aw, hi babe. You ok?’ He said, ‘Ya, I just don’t do this enough.’

I melted.

But it occurred to me that one of our biggest challenges as parents isn’t just taking care of the kids, but taking care of our relationship too. Staying in touch, for us, is an imperative part of our daily lives.
