HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!! I haven’t blogged in a few months so I thought I’d post a rather funny story for my first 2018 entry. We are now the proud parents of a beautiful little girl (Kaycee). I’m a first time parent, which of course means I have NO IDEA what I’m doing, but I’m having a blast learning. For instance, today I learned a new technique I like to call, “sexy parenting”. In the 3 months since KayCee was born, I hadn’t been feeling very “womanly” (if you know what I mean). Next week our family will be going out of town for a social event so I attempted to carve out a little romance time this weekend. It took 4hrs, but I finally got our daughter down for her nap. I snuck into our master bath and lightly applied one of my husband’s favorite fragrances while he was watching football. I CONFIDENTLY walked into the bedroom wearing nothing but a pair of black boy shorts and black, lace up, thigh high boots. I was excited by the anticipation of my husband’s reaction…but he wasn’t there! I then walked into our living room to find him holding and rocking a screaming Kaycee…..time to feed the baby. My fantasy didn’t actually consist of mixing formula wearing boy shorts and thigh high boots, but that was my reality. THIS will be the “new sexy” in our household for a while. My husband would spend the rest of the evening trying to put our little one to bed…to no avail.
My sexy boots are now back in their box in the back of my closet for now. My daily routine consists of nursing, pumping, changing, cleaning, eating, screaming, sleeping, repeat. I delivered our daughter on Halloween night and while she’s very much a treat, she’s also a great deal of work. It’s so easy to fall into a schedule that only includes work and baby so I make every attempt to carve out, family friendly, dating activities with my husband. We are currently our daughter’s only childcare so dating includes daughter. I’m not giving up though, this just means I have to plan “sexy time” far in advance. Valentine’s Day is around the corner, it’s a special time for us this year because last year we found out I was pregnant a week later. Since my husband enjoys puzzles and adventure I think I’ll combine the two and plan a Valentine’s Day he’ll always remember! As for romance between now and then, we’ll just wing it!
Welcome to parenthood!
