How has motherhood changed your marriage? Part I

Bill Withers’ song really says it all: “Just the two of us. We can make it if we try. Just the two of us. You and I.”

Sounds lovely and perfect. But Bill stopped at two and didn’t dare add a lyric about “When there’s three of us.” Honestly, that’s when things get complicated. Once you become parents and there’s a third, screaming, wet, demanding newborn in the relationship – all bets are off. Date nights are a thing of the past (at least for awhile) and you’re often too exhausted to share much “intimate” time together.

Which leads me to location sponsor Laurie Morrison’s question for the mommy guests: How has motherhood changed your marriage? Just thinking how to answer that question makes me cringe. Motherhood, the pain, the stretch marks and lack of sleep have had the deepest effect on my marriage. A.J. is our “honeymoon baby.” We were married about two months when I found out I was pregnant.

Here’s how Felicia Walton of Sassie Babies embroidery and maternity product inventor Michele McDonald (@wefit2029) answer in Part I. Check back Friday for Part II when me and Laurie Morrison offer our responses.
