Matt and I have just started taking a parenting class at church and last night was our second meeting!  It’s been a while since the last classes that we took and with the kids growing way too fast we were ready for our next dose of parenting wisdom :)  While we have been gleaning some wisdom about instilling morality in our growing children and discipline issues, the biggest thing that we focused on last night was spending time as husband and wife that the kids can see!  We were challenged to have ‘couch time’ – 15 minutes of husband and wife together on the couch talking while the kids are around to see.  So often it is easy to get caught up in meeting the kids’ needs since their needs are much often much louder, seem more urgent and can even be easier to ‘fix.’  We forget that our relationship as husband and wife is the first priority ALL the time, not just after the kids go to bed.  It’s good for me to remember that my role as wife to Matt comes first and that it is okay (and a good thing!) to let the kids see that!  They need to know (and see!) that Momma and Daddy love each other even more than we love them.
