A few weeks ago Alex and I went away two days without the kids.⁣
For two days, we didn’t talk. They didn’t ask to call us, not even in the evening. We didn’t feel the desire or the need to call them.⁣
Complete detox.⁣
We didn't take it personally.⁣
Nobody questioned each other’s love.⁣
We knew we were all fine and that was enough.⁣
We respected, welcomed, accepted each other, and the love grew.⁣
There is nothing wrong with needing and wanting to stay away from your kids. Alone or as a couple.⁣
Affections also require a detox.⁣
