I love to make out with my husband.
(OH HAI DAD! CEASE AND DESIST! CEASE AND DESIST!)
After eight years Cody still does it for me.
Sometimes even multiple times.
ARE YOU BLUSHING?
You shouldn’t be, really. It’s completely natural and frankly if you have a kid EVERYONE KNOWS YOU DID IT AT SOME POINT. All this talk about us trying to get another tax deduction in my belly for the last three years? GUESS HOW WE’RE TRYING TO GET THAT BABY THERE. I dare say next to the scent of lilacs and donuts, sex is the best gift God ever gave us mere mortals.
As long as we treat it with respect.
You go messing around with something as sacred as procreation and things get dicey.
If you’re married sex is important. Not only to get those babies in our bellies but to share a part of us that is only meant for one other person who means the most to us, whomever that may be.
In my case it’s Cody.
And I crave Cody on a regular basis.
And I’m not ashamed to admit it.
There’s something about being so desperately and trusting in love with someone even though they know what you smell like in the morning, look like after giving birth and sound like when you’re screaming about buying the wrong kind of cracker.
Our shapes have changed over the last eight years. Some parts have travelled south, a lot are squashier, but we’ve been with each other for every bump, bruise, scar, ingrown hair and new freckle.
Diaper Diaries has an all out challenge for those of you who feel up to it***.I’m not here to offer suggestions on what you should do, everyone’s situation is so different. I’m just here to say that being tangled up with your significant other on a regular basis can cure a lot of hurt, solve a lot of stress and grow a lot of love.
Plus it’s fun.
***Diaper Diaries challenge references the New Living Translation of the Bible. While I don’t use that particular version in my personal bible study (I use the King James Version) the underlying point that sex is a good thing is the same. And that is my point. Not that anyone is wrong or right when it comes to what version of the bible they read.
