When I got married, since we are not a nuclear family, we rarely got any private time between ourselves. The emptiness in the relationship grew over a period of time and soon as they say in mumbai, you get used to it and accept it as a part of life. Now with my daughter, I wanted my hubby to have a special bond where he would get to enjoy his fatherhood apart his office work and tensions.
I actually planned a quick and short vacation which was just 2 nights and 3 days to Lonavala. That was the turning point in our lives and I could actually see the difference in him. There was a spark in our relationship, as well the bonding with my daughter was vibrant. After this trip, there was no turning back, he now himself plans short vacations so that he can spend more time with us. Madikeri and Goa were other two memorable trips that came later. These trips actually made us realise the importance we play in each other's life.
My daughter loves adventures. Trekking, beaches, visiting wild sanctuaries have become part of our itinerary. She has been an inspiration for us to enjoy nature and nourish our relationship as parents.
