A couple of months ago I read an article called What the Happiest Couples Do Before Breakfast, where writer Alisa Bowman shares morning rituals of eight different couples.
As moms, we all know what an impact our moods every morning have on the kids, so I liked the idea of being more purposeful in my first daily interactions with my husband as well.
So I noticed that a few mornings a week, I have just enough time to sneak Ryan a bite of breakfast right before he gets out of bed. It’s nothing fancy, maybe a bowl of oatmeal or a slice of toast, that I hand to him with a quick smooch before heading back to those perpetually hungry kids of ours.
Although I know he appreciates the gesture, I’ve noticed that the bigger difference is actually in how I feel. By taking two minutes to do something for him in the morning, I remember that it all started with the two of us, and I feel like we’re on the same team again.
Do you have any little morning rituals with your spouse?
