Sex as Leverage

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

So, last week I had a blessed hour of "me time!" I know what a hypocrite I am, lamenting separation and then turning around to laud it. Hopefully most mother's understand the paradox, as I don't think I'm alone in the irony.

Anywho, I was able to finagle a feeding, which led to a nap, during which Tony didn't have his hands full . . . so I was able to run a little further AND take a shower IN ADDITION TO making myself presentable afterwards! It was amazing to feel like myself AND a mother!

During all of this time I was able to think and let my mind wander. Popping into my head was the all important 6 week appoinment {which was actually scheduled at 5 weeks for me?} . Most people {aka hubbies} know the fall out of this post partum appointment: the all clear for sex!

Where did my mind take this though?

Me: Thanks Ton, that was amazing! All of that time got me thinking though . . . How about we strike a deal?
Tony {warily}: Oh yeah, what's that?
Me: You get sex when the bathroom is finished.
Tony: Don't think.

Followed a few minutes later by, "How about when I get sex, I'll finish the bathroom!"

In a good way, we fail at using sex as a leverage lol.

Thanks for the candor re 1st time parenting and body changes. I bookmarked the site you wrote about a few weeks ago for future use (we hope to start the baby making in a few months.) Hopefully (for non-mom readers), you'll be candid about what it is like trying to get back to that intimacy, too, as I think everyone avoids the subject, even though it is a natural part of married life after kids. The info is few and far between. :(

Ha! This is awesome! Thankfully, we fail at sex as leverage too, and strangely (apparently from what I've read/heard), I'm one of those women who actually likes sex and looks forward to it/is kind of a man about it. Don't know if this is due to my mans amazingness in bed or just how I'm wired, but there you have it. I like sex.

Well, that little bit might have qualified as unwarrented TMI, but you are honest also, so it's disarming, which must mean it's your fault that I, a perfect stranger just told you that I like sex. LOL, good post!
