When you have children it's hard NOT to shift your focus to that little human. We want to raise them, pass down our traditions, teach them what our parents taught us (at least the good parts), create new memories, and hopefully not scar them in any way for life. According to scientific research couple's with Preschool kids are the unhappiest in their marriages. What about our spouses and our partners? We shouldn't have to wait til our kids turn 18 to be happy again as a couple. We can cultivate our marriages and create loving memories and traditions of our very own.

Sound familiar? January comes along, with a few extra pounds and a new focus and determination until November again. But you know what? F#@k it.
