Tag Team

Raising children isn’t easy – it brings a whole new dynamic to your relationship. As much as we love our little ones, there’s no doubt that when a baby arrives there are parts of your old self and your old relationship you will grieve; the freedom, the spontaneity, the flexibility, the long lazy lay ins together, uninterrupted dinners…

Despite the changes children inevitably bring, the success of your relationship will come down to how committed you are at ‘working together.’

Last night, after a four hour tag team struggle to wind our little one down for his bed time routine, I sobbed into my cold dinner.

Thankfully, my man was there for me reminding me that I’m doing a great job and the best I can.

Who do you have working together with you? Raising little ones requires us to work as a team. If you don’t have your partner around, assemble your team of friends, family, neighbors.

You needn’t do this alone.

But for those of you who ARE working together as a couple, remember that it is precisely this ‘working together’ that will lead to the ongoing success of your relationship and your growing family.

What are your top tips for ‘working together’ for a successful parenting relationship?

Love always,

Hayley xx

  1. Top tips are to read from the same script and always have each other’s back. That way you are united as one. Finish the day on a snuggle and tell one another you love them. Appreciating each other and the simple things that you do for each other. Lyndsay said don’t get addicted to an app called sandbox of which she is struggle to come off 😂 xxx

  2. Hi Hayley … it’s tough work and am so glad your man is part of your team. I’ve often been part of that extended team especially if bub was colic or had behavioural issues or later on giving the sex and drugs chat … there are many friends and neighbours who will step up so please always ask for help as needed.
    Hang in there, it’s well worth it 🙂
