Thank you to those that gave entry game suggestions and other ideas for nightly entertainment. I, perhaps more so than my husband, am bored with our current entertainment options and am seeking MORE interaction with my husband, in a way that vegging out in front of the TV does not provide. I believe he feels the same, so made this thoughtful inquiry WITH my knowledge.
As for my husband, in all my precious years on this earth I have yet to meet his equal as a husband, father, and overall person. He has romanced me from day one and has not quit, even as life has become more chaotic in our current phase of parents to babies. He makes consistent sacrifices for MY happiness, more so than I do for him. He gave up gaming, nearly completely the day we got married, and absolutely completely the day my first child was born. He is the most involved father I have ever known, from changing cloth diapers, washing them, playing babies and pretend kitchen, feeding the kids, bathing them, whatever is necessary. We share responsibilities. We are at a place in life where our children are asleep for the night at 7:30pm, leaving a few hours for our relaxation and entertainment, just the two of us. For those of you who don't have that time, I am sorry it hasn't worked that way for you. We are choosing to cherish these moments - TOGETHER.
As for culture and getting to know the country, we are daily immersed with Mozambicans, have learned Portuguese fluently so that we can join them in in their beautiful country, as well as have chosen to birth our children right here and give them the opportunity and right to be Mozambicans citizens. Mozambique is more our home than any other place in this world. We have no possessions anywhere else. We LIVE here, not just on job assignment for a few years. NOT typical ex-pats. So, with all respect, you speak from assumption and ignorance.
As for being active, we have a rock wall in our living room that even my eldest child and I enjoy. That should say enough, but on top of that, we have 3 surf boards hanging in our guest room, my children who are under 2, love the beach, the park, ice cream shops, and most of all playing the backyard with their father they adore and their ginormous slobbery dog.
As for sex, while it is none of your business, it is a-maz-ing. (As 3 kids under 3 may prove.) And even if we did have sex every single night, do you really expect it to take up our whole evening, every evening? If you think that, you live in some alternate fantasy world.
Again, thank you the genuine suggestions, we are taking them into consideration.
