Evening Activities

Our baby goes to bed by 8 pm. My partner and I are at a loss for what to do in the evenings. We’re sick of things like board games, cards, movies and tv. We’ve been struggling with communication lately and I was hoping to find more activities to bring us closer together and get us communicating. Any ideas?

Look on Amazon for "Table Topics." It's a collection of questions to get conversation going. I'm sure there are online/Web alternatives to this as well.

Also consider postponing your dinner together until after the baby is in bed, and cooking it together. Maybe even subscribing to something like Blue Apron or Hello Fresh. Put some Norah Jones on, drink some wine, and make the meal together.

Well, this is definitely an issue you need to resolve. Why are you not having sex?

What about art work?? Painting?? Chalks?? etc.

Although we don't live together, my girlfriend paints in the evenings. She also works with chalks.

It is quiet so you won't wake up the baby.

It seems to relax my girlfriend and fills her free time with something she likes to do.
