I agree.. definitely new and exciting.. but not so much at the same time. We've been doing this since november and have settled into a life together-ish.
The communication is the biggest thing, especially with their being kids involved. Our life is dictated by the kids and its hard to be assertive about our needs without feeling selfish.
You are absolutely right about not neglecting our partners.. I will say its difficult. H and I have similar schedules.. T and C are all over the place.. H and I are best friends and it's hard to keep us separated and focused solely on our partners because of the NRE. Besides.. I think we feel super comfortable and used to our partners.. that we often take them for granted.
Any tips on communicating?
