Balancing Kids and Romance

I am sitting here with my wife and kids watching a television special about a family with sextuplets. It reminded me of the little things that we would need to do to keep romance alive in our relationship. Taking a bath together late at night. Giving each other a back rub. Bringing home a nice bottle of wine and curling up together to watch a movie. We had very little time or resources to leave the house and had to be as inventive as possible to make time for each other.

I have mentioned this before, but doing the little, thoughtful things for the one you love can be very romantic. The other day I brought my wife a card -- it wasn't her birthday or our anniversary but just a "I love you" card and one of her favorite candles. What can you do?
