I’m going there… yep, it’s time to talk about sex. *GASP* Did I just type that OUT LOUD?
I find that when I get down and dirty regularly that I feel better as a person. Crazy, right? But it’s true. We put so much effort into making sure our families are taken care of that we forget that as women we have needs too.
Ways To Sneak In Sex
After The Kids Go To Bed
This one was darn near impossible because my 3 year old still sleeps with us. I know, its a bad habit and trust me, I wish we broke it because it has been horrible trying to break this. So what we do is after we know she’s sleeping we either put her in her bed or we get creative. Living room, basement, kitchen, wherever it will be the most quiet. I know, it’s so not sexy, but when you have kids, you gotta do, what ya gotta do.
Put In A Movie
We know that there is a short attention span when we put in a movie for our 5 year old and 3 year old, so we know we have 20 minutes max. But to us, 20 minutes is better than no minutes and it is always nice having a moment of intimacy.
Take A Shower
This one is pretty self-explanatory. It is possible to do it in a shower – might not always be comfortable as we’ve learned but it works.
Do Your Laundry
What mom doesn’t want to be productive? And who doesn’t like a little vibrations (yes, I just giggled like I was 16 again). But seriously, pop a load of laundry in the wash and wait for the spin cycle. You’re welcome!
Play “Footsie” Under The Table
So this doesn’t have to be sex – it would be really awkward trying to accomplish that at the dinner table. However, if you and your yummy honey are sitting next to each other, you could sneak your hand or foot over and start “playing” with each other. Now some of you might be saying, “Gosh darn it Shay, this is awkward, weird and just a little dirty.” So don’t use your hands and use your feet to foreplay and then go hog wild later.
You have to take the moments that you can to be intimate with your spouse especially when your kids are always around. Get creative!
Sometimes, we would take the kids to my parents for the night and just do a movie and cuddle night – ok, clearly, it was more than cuddling but it was nice to not worry about kids and if they might knock on our locked door.
