A friend and reader who shall remain nameless, Kim from Washington, recently heard some sage advice and passed it on to me. I’m sharing it with you, because you deserve it.
“Sometimes you have to take your mommy hat off and put on your vagina hat.”
Yes, Wise Sage, I understand what you mean.
I usually refrain from discussing too much naughty stuff here, mostly because my family reads this blog, but I can’t resist. As a mom, I spend a lot of time feeling less than sexy. My anonymous friend (Kim in Washington) is pregnant, so she’s feeling the not-so-sexy-blues. Being pregnant does that to all of us. I’m sure I’m not the only one who assumed that once the baby (in my case babies) popped out that would change instantly.
As it turns out, Justin Timberlake does not live here.
The sexy was not automatically brought back.
When I was in my early 20′s an older man I worked with told me that sometimes in long-term relationships you have to “find passion.” (He was gay, so it wasn’t at all creepy.) At the time, I couldn’t understand what he meant. Passion was my middle name. On more than one occasion I remember thinking, “I’m the hottest chick in the room.”
That’s not so true in this room…
Sad thing is, there are worse photos of me. Much worse. But I’ve thrown them all away because they scare me.
I’m tired every second of the day. I have to deal with other people’s bodily functions on a regular basis. Seriously, Reese was constipated today and asked me to sit with him in the bathroom and hold his hand while he pushed it out. That’s my life. It is decidedly un-sexy.
In what can only be mother nature’s great sense of humor, men seem to have little to no interest in feeling sexy. I think the longer it has been between showers, the more interested they are in getting busy. If they haven’t showered or shaved in four days and have sat around the house all day eating Doritos and watching football, you’d better watch out.
Embrace it. I’ve discovered that one thing that is always sexy to Dallas is my willingness. Even when you have formula or snot stains on your shirt or you feel fat, if you tap him on the shoulder and say, “wanna do it?” he’ll think it’s sexy.
So do it.
Take your Mommy hat off and put on your vagina hat.
Just not this one…
