Bye, bye love

My youngest daughter drew a picture of me and my husband. We're standing hand in hand, and between our heads there's a floating balloon. I was pleasantly surprised. Obviously, we make quite a loving, and harmonious couple!

But then she said: 'That was before you had us, mummy!'

  1. Awww, sounds like a lovely photo. Don't be saddened by her comment, martial relationships change as children come along. The love is strong, dutiful and romantic but not as young love. I believe children know can see love and know it, in all its forms :0)

  2. I agree that relationships change but it still can be strong and romantic if we work at it.

  3. At least the two of you are still the topics of her artwork. Not only that, but when she thinks of you, the fist image which comes to mind is a pleasant one. Whenever my wife and I go out for an evening (ummm...right in 2009), we are very straightforward about telling the kids we need some time not being parents. A popcorn and a movie seems to cure them of heartsickness pretty quickly:)
