But it's sometimes fun to go off the beaten path. It reminds us of a more carefree time when we were younger, before kids, back when a little thing called romance actually existed.
It allows us to be silly, to be ourselves, to laugh, which can be very romantic. Not in the stereotypical roses-and-chocolate way, but in the making-memories-with-your-partner kind of way.
Why don't you ... act like a kid.
- Go to a playground and swing
- Play video games
- Challenge your partner to an old-school board game that you both love
- Throw a baseball around (it's finally nice weather!)
And if you can, do it without the kids. It will give you guys a much-needed break from playing the mommy and daddy roles.
Do you and your SO ever do something silly together? What's your favorite "kid" activity?
