We’re all adults here.
We know there isn’t a stork in a USPS hat that drops off little pre-diapered babies at our doorsteps, right?
(Dad, this is your cue to stop reading).
So it should come as no surprise that my husband and I created Declan the old fashion way.
We had sex.
But just like those frisky dolphin cousins of ours we like to have said relations recreationally as well.
I know that people say sex goes out the window once you have kids but in our case that just isn’t true.
Sex didn’t leave; it adapted.
Sex Before Declan:
Sexy attire, music playing, and a neat bookshelf.
Sex After Declan:
Pizza with ranch and baseball tees.
But with all kidding aside I will say that we have had to get a lot more creative.
I mean, what are you supposed to do when your baby not only co-sleeps but sprawls out over the entire bed?
I’ll tell you what.
We call it Chateau De Franklin.
As you can see, we decided to go full-blown luxury with this baby.
There’s the leopard print side for a flirty night or you can turn it around for a cozy cabin feel.
I’m thinking of opening my own shop on Etsy.
Are you tired of having to restrict sex to the shower while your kid is in the bathroom with you, awkwardly watching?
Do they hog the bed and make it impossible to even scoot to one side and be intimate?
Do you wish you could have your very own space for you and your partner to get down and dirty?
Well now you can with My Sexy Chateau!
Since I’m sure Derek and I are the only parents on the planet that have ever made a sex spot on their floor with a blanket, I don’t think getting it patented will be a problem.
But seriously, you do what you’ve got to do right?
How do you keep intimacy alive after having kids?
What is your sexfession?
Whether you had sex with your kid in the bed or had your dog come up and lick your butt mid sesh, I want you to confess!
(Confession: Both have happened in my home).
