Amen @EY1! On a serious note, surprise getaways seem to work in my house

Get the inlaws to take the kid and get away for 3 days, Monterrey, One of the FL Keys, somewhere secluded

Write he a nice letter about raising a family together and how much you love her blah blah blah she'll eat that shot up

Shit*

To add onto Ey2 - if you can send her with a sister/friend, even better.

You drunk, EY3? Haha

I have been married for 8+. My next anniversary is around the corner and i have done all of the suggestions above including the wood. I am hopeless

Yo ZS, give them a different type of wood ;)

Vacation

A new girlfriend

You can go for a carpentry class and self carve a bracelet for her. Be sure to pair it up with something expensive 😜

YES D4. That one never gets old. Just try to keep some variation and don't consistently raise the bar too high or something low key could end up being a disappointment in the future.

Thoughts on timing baby number 2? The original plan was two kids less than 4 years apart; I was planning on trying this summer, but decided to delay because COVID. My daughter just turned 3, and I'm back and forth between just giving in and trying now so they're more closely spaced, or waiting until there's a vaccine even though they'll be further apart in age than I'd like. Thoughts? I'm 31 so biologically I'm not in a huge rush but I'm really starting to feel the baby fever.
