J and I had been in a bit of a rut with getting home from work, eating, getting M to bed, and watching TV. We started playing Sorry one night, and I had so much fun I got him another game for Christmas-- Forbidden Island. This game is collaborative and we've been having a lot of fun playing it. It's nice that you work together to achieve something instead of competing against each other, but I also have a competitive streak and enjoy those kinds of games as well. Do any of you have games you love playing as a couple? Any other ideas for ways to spend time together at the end of a long day that don't involve staring at the TV every single night? M is 8 months old today, and I'd say it's been a tough few months, but we really want to keep our relationship strong and feel like more than just co-parents.
