Revitalize Your Relationships
Your new (or renewing) role as a mom and your parents' roles as grandparents give you a means to reconnect or better your relationship. "Sharing the mothering experience brought back memories for my mom and helped me understand what she went through with five kids," says Kathy Ward, mother of three.
This is also an important time to connect with your spouse, but don't just spend all your time talking about the baby and parenting issues. Add a little romance, even if it's just going out for a decaf latte after Lamaze class.
