'Tired mom' writes about the power of quickie sex for her marriage
Quality time between the sheets with your significant other is often few and far between if your children are young. Sometimes it's painful, other times you're just too tired to get busy.
Blogger Mel Watts knows that feeling all too well. The self-described "tired mom" managed to get a quickie in with her husband and then posted about it on Facebook. It might sound like oversharing territory — and it kind of is — but fellow tired parents are giving her plenty of likes for her honesty.
"With one child at the neighbors and a baby asleep in the cot it seemed like a perfect opportunity," she wrote on Saturday of how they got the opportunity. "I mean I've been turning him down for long enough I actually felt bad. Knowing it was only going to take a few minutes and I'll have a day of any food I want to eat, listen to any music I want and an early night. Sounds delightful right?!"
"...I would hardly say it was romantic. I may have to admit it was quick and slightly obligated. I was definitely not prepared and thankful I was in my period undies (which have now become the daily undies), which have barely any elastic for quick removal. We picked who would be first to get up in case of 'Surprise I'm home' children turned up."
Afterward, she took a few seconds for a "slight make-up fix and hair fix" to get rid of the sex evidence. She doesn't exactly make it sound like the most passionate sex in the world — nothing like the sweaty, passionate quickies we see in the movies — but it got the job done.
And her husband looks pretty happy about it, too.
"I'm not normally your day-time quickie kinda person, but today I thought the amount of effort he has put into every sexual advance it would just be plain mean of me," she continued. "Now I sit here in my pjs eating a block of chocolate watching a movie knowing I can go to bed without feeling bad.
"Totally worth it."
