Early this week, I went out to dinner with a work-friend of mine. She was in town for a meeting planner education event and being 7 1/2 months pregnant with her 2nd child, wanted to get together before her maternity leave started. In full truth, she is really just anxious to hear if my boss has chosen her city as the host for our 2008 convention but thats another story!!!
We talked work for a little while but the fun began when the conversation turned to kids and husbands.
Is your kid potty-trained? How are you doing it? Why isnt there a Potty Training 101 class that all toddler parents are required to attend?
Sure, you say the husband helps around the house but is that really true? (In my case, yes, most of the time. Thats another post for another day!)
I miss the happy hours after work most about the pre-baby life. Let's plan one after this baby gets out of me (that was her talking and me agreeing!)
Last but not least..........Do you french-kiss your husband anymore? Not talking about baby-making time or the similiar times. But after work, you walk in the door.....do you give him a quick kiss or get all hot and heavy in the foyer of your house? You remember dating right? Didnt you french kiss him all the time then? But as soon as you are married, the french kisses stop unless procreation is the goal. Sucks, huh?!
Yep, that is what the dinner conversation revolved around. But its so true. And it was great to know that is happens to other couples too. We are not alone!!!!!!
When Hubby and I were dating, we were That Couple. The ones who were always holding hands, kissing, etc etc etc...making everyone else sick! I loved it. A good ol' make out session on the couch......weren't those the best!?Even got a little tongue action on the altar after the Pastor announced us man and wife.
However, 2 1/2 years and 1 baby later....the french kisses seem to be regulated to "bedroom only" and even there, only when we are "excercising" together. We dont just sit on the couch and kiss for the pure joy of it anymore. Or surprise each other with a big wet perfect frech kiss in the middle of the kitchen. Why? Are we afraid that it might lead somewhere (like the bed!) or is it that we are so used to our life together now that it just doesnt happen? Well, that sucks and I think it should change.
I dont know if you still read this blog, Hubby, but if you do......BRING IT ON!!!! :)
