Freebie Friday: Slices (of Married Life)

An old adage says: A picture is worth a thousand words, and we strongly agree.  In fact the number of pictures Debi takes could easily match the amount of words she writes!  Yes, she loves her camera.  Our children even call her “The Nana-razzi,” always ready for the next best shot!

So, from time to time we may have a photo that perfectly represents a slice of married life – the good and the more challenging moments.  There will be no words – only the picture chosen.  All photos will be taken from Debi’s camera, and we will call these posts “Slices”.  We would love to hear your interpretation of the photo.  How does it speak to you in your marriage?

Below is our first Slice:

    Well, when I see this picture it reminds me of the cherished times I have alone with Joe staying away overnight or a weekend. These times come few and far between since I have 4 youngins at home but we talk of them often. Even though right now we lack finances and time to go away, we still talk about what it will be like when we can and the dreaming together can be fun. I can only put a Do Not Disturb sign on my bedroom door in a hotel. I could try to at home but when you have a little one standing outside the door waiting for the Do Not Disturb sign to come down so they can disturb you…well, that in itself is quite disturbing!!!!!! So this picture reminds me of time alone and away.

      Thanks for sharing, Shawnie! It can be fun to plan a night “away” at home…just find someone to watch your children. I agree having them stand outside your door waiting for the “Do Not Disturb” sign to come down would be disturbing! 🙂

    To me this picture impresses the fact that the parental bedroom should generally be off-limits to children. As much as I love my children, I feel that my bedroom should be a place for renewal and intimacy. That is why I never had my children share our bed at night. My little ones slept in their crib from day one. Not only it got them used to sleeping on their own, and sleeping through the night at 4/5 months, but it kept my husband from waking up at night, and get his much-needed sleep so that he could get up in the morning refreshed and go to work, while I had the privilege of staying home with my children. I’m not saying that children should never enter the parental bedroom. It is fun to relax on a Saturday morning with the whole family in a big bed, and I recommend it to everyone, but, when taken to the extreme, one has to wonder how families who have a “family” bed ever have more than one child…

      We agree wholeheartedly! The master bedroom should be a place of refuge for both husband and wife! We’re also strong advocates of a regular bedtime for the little ones so Mommy and Daddy can have time together each night. Thanks for commenting!
