Living near a city helps with this one, but there are smaller museums of all kinds in odd places. Reading a book about history just isn’t the same as actually going to a museum, seeing artifacts and reading about them, pointing out interesting things you noticed to your partner, having a light lunch at the café close by, and maybe getting a souvenir to send to Aunt Fanny.

When the time comes to spend a moment together alone without baby, it’s important to do whatever both of you like to reconnect and feel relaxed.Every couple has different preferences – some like dinner and a movie, some like bungee jumping.Some like both in the same day!So just gauge how both of you feel, and work together to find what will bring you most pleasure.
