Can you get the kids from school?
OMG, I had to clean up TWO poops from the floor today. It was disgusting.
Oh hey. How was work. Here’s the kids. Bye.
Any of this sound like familiar conversation with your spouse?
You know how it goes when you chat:
- You cover the basics.
- You figure out who’s-doing-what.
- You text about poop, and 2nd grade teacher assignments, and grocery lists.
Yeah. It’s not exactly the sexy, flirtatious banter that once existed between you two.
And I get it. I’ve been there, done that. THIS. IS. SUPER. COMMON.
It’s normal to lose that flirtatious edge when you’re surrounded by kids and mess, and when your daily conversations are about “the details.” And it’s really, really hard to talk about poop in a flirtatious way. (If you can figure that one out, please let me know in the comments!)
The truth is that the kinds of conversations we HAVE TO HAVE as parents, just to keep the ship running smoothly, can pretty much MURDER the flirtation between you.
But if you’re not careful, the absence of flirtation (and the ensuing loss of romantic connection) can become a bigger problem. It can leave you and your partner feeling like your relationship is stale and flat, like you’re more roommates-than-lovers. And is that vibe really sustainable for the next many, many, many decades? No. It’s not.
And that’s why you gotta REMEMBER to do start flirting with your husband/partner again. But flirting doesnt have to super erotic or serious – it’s not about seductively licking your lips or throwing down a pick-up line at your spouse.
