Parents, how do you manage??

Lu

How do you manage? I feel like my husband and I are still struggling to find a good routine even though our daughter is already 2 1/2 years old. Life just feels hectic and overwhelming on a regular basis, but maybe that’s just part of being a parent?

Here are the things we struggle with most. How does everyone else handle these things? 

1) Our marriage. It became our lowest priority after we became parents and it has suffered tremendously. I honestly feel an emptiness inside when I’m with him which makes me so sad. How and when do you find time for each other??

2) Dinner. Usually one of us makes dinner while the other plays with our daughter. Is this how everyone else does it? Sometimes we even throw on a show and we both make dinner but I’m wondering if there’s any other way to do this better. Dinner always just feels like a pretty hectic part of our day, especially after we’ve both worked all day.
