Why I Say “Yes Please” To Sex As A Mom!
It’s Saturday morning, and I am unloading the dishwasher in my baggy pj’s. Personally I am not even sure I have brushed my teeth yet. All of our children are happily playing and watching cartoons with full belly’s from pancakes.
You snuggle up behind me and start placing kisses on my neck and ear! My gut reaction is to swat you away and finish my task. I am thinking seriously right now my hair is standing on all ends and I have coffee & morning breath. Oh yeah did I mention this is probably a t-shirt stained with breast milk. How in the world do you find me sexy at this precisee moment.
As you continue to place sweet kisses and your arms wrap around my waist. I make the decision to embrace this moment and I turn into a kiss wrapping my arms around your neck. I think ” Yes Please “! I also remember in the back of my mind that men are different and this is your way of showing your love. You love and desire me and don’t see all the insecurities that come with being a mom of 3 young children.
All you saw was a woman, and I am so very thankful. We continued to make out in the kitchen and then sneak upstairs. It was a fun 15 minutes because when you have 3 young kids that is exactly how long a Saturday morning tryst lasts before someone is banging on the bedroom door. We both burst out laughing and put ourselves back together.
In the end I have to remind myself that I am first a woman and sex is important. When you have young kids there isn’t always the “perfect time”. Sure would I love a shower & clean teeth. But to feel sexy is to see the desire in my husband’s eyes for me standing in a kitchen in a stained t-shirt. I could have turned him away and caused rejection, but I am happy to say ” Yes Please” and embrace the intimacy when there are opportunities.
As a mom it’s not easy to have confidence and feel sexy because #lifewithlittlekids gets in the way. But as mom’s if we take the time to remember that deep down we are sexy women each in our own way and in our husband’s eye’s….then stolen moments might be the best sex in your life. So the next time your husband has that look in his eye, or he reaches out to snuggle say “Yes Please” & let everything else fade for at least 15 minutes or until someone needs a new cartoon.
