Cupid’s Advice: 

The littlest feet can make a significant footprint in one’s life. Ensuring that your relationship is ready and stable for a child is important. Cupid has some advice to share with you:

1. Be more organized: Having a planned schedule may be the best way to stay organized. While having two children, a job, and other extra activities going on in your life, there is the possibility of your day becoming hectic, so it is important to be organized to avoid any obstacles. This can include creating a calendar and posting it in your kitchen or downloading a useful scheduling app on your phone.

2. Accept the change that is about to occur: Work together with your partner as a team to come up with a game plan in order to make your lives better. That may include getting a weekly sitter, scheduling intimacy, avoiding criticism of each other’s parenting skills, and so forth.  It can be a tough time, and being there for each other can make things run more smoothly.

3. Communicate often: In a relationship, being open and honest is vital. Discussing topics avoids criticism and being blamed for certain outcomes. Take time to talk to your partner and listen to their “parent’s perspective” before jumping to conclusions. Make an effort to be understanding.
