Do you ever find yourself wondering, “Uhh, where did my sex life go, and why is it so hard to bring it back?” I have a person here that I married, and I SHOULD be able to have sex almost as much as I want, right?
Well, it just isn’t as easy as it sounds.
One night, my husband and I had DECIDED that we were going to have sex later that night. Yes, it was a decision. A very exciting decision.
But, first, before exciting things could happen, we had The Bed Time Ritual to get through. The little maniac relaxes on the couch with a cup of milk and watches a show on our Tivo list before we go upstairs to get ready for bed. This particular night, he chose a rousing episode of Chuggington. Titillating stuff. Anyone getting excited yet?
I decided some wine was in order, but, oops, I had a little too much. Perhaps I was trying to take the edge off the DECISION and the anticipation it had caused. I was sitting on the couch, and I kid you not, I had to shut one eye to focus on Chuggington. This is a sorry, sad state of affairs when you find yourself watching Chuggington with one eye closed because you have had too much to drink. (Trust me, it didn’t make the damn show any better either.)
So with Chuggington as our foreplay, upstairs we went. I will leave the rest to your imagination, but I beg of you, how do you bring sexy back on a semi-regular basis without taking too much time or staying up too damn late (Let’s face it, I’m pretty sure there are many studies to support the fact that a tired mother will choose sleep over sex 10 times out of 10). And we wonder why we don’t do this more often…
