This 7-Day Romance Challenge Will Remind You That You're More Than Just Tired Parents

PopSugar Logo By Kate Schweitzer of PopSugar | Slide 1 of 9: It's normal for relationships to ebb and flow over the years, but when you've got kids, there's mostly just a lot of ebbing. What were once quiet weeknights cuddled up on the couch are now loud and frenzied evenings that involve scarfing leftover mac-and-cheese over the stove and nodding off in a toddler bed while reading Rapunzel three times in a row. And weekends? Forget about recharging one's relationship batteries – most couples spend those days waking up even earlier to shuffle kids to and from swim classes, run errands, and triage whatever temper tantrum inevitably erupts. It's impossible for most coparents to even imagine spending time focused on the other. With that in mind, we enlisted Kim Anami, a holistic sex and relationship expert and founder of the Anami Alchemia sexual wellness line, to help create a practical, sleep-deprived-parent-friendly program to rev up any couple's romance in just one week.What's great about this 7-day challenge is that you can start any time, you can tackle the days in whichever order suits your chaotic schedules best, and you don't even need to book a babysitter. So put down the ladle of cold macaroni noodles, grab your partner, and get back in the flow.
