I don’t know if we have it all figured out, and our life is definitely a work in progress. We tend to change our approach as the season of our family changes.  However, one thing that we have kept consistent since our oldest was just a baby is that we use nap times on Saturday as our time.  It’s our own mini date time at home.  We put the nappers down and those who are old enough to avoid nap time find a quiet activity.  Then, Rob and I sit on the couch or porch and we just spend time with each other.  Saturday afternoons are our time to dream and reconnect.  16 years in and that is still really important and one of our favorite times.
