with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
Emily: “Look at my special trick!” *Unsnaps button of her jeans, with flair*
Me: “I do that special trick for Daddy all the time.”
Leah thought I was kidding and a few others wondered the same. The truth of the matter is that my husband and I speak in innuendos to each other all day long, much of which is sparked by things our kids say.
As they are getting older (Our oldest just turned seven) we’ve talked about whether we should curb this kind of talk when they are around. We’ve come to the united conclusion that no, we should not. What better place to learn what a healthy, loving, flirtatious relationship looks like than by watching their Mom and Dad in action. (Not that kind of action. We do keep some things for the privacy of our bedroom.)
We hug each other throughout the day and give each other quick kisses hello and goodbye. If we really want to make the kids squirm we’ll do a long, drawn-out kiss. They always shriek in horror, but you can see that they kind of love seeing their parents, well, in love.
We’ll continue to make comments and remarks to each other that make us both laugh and will one day (probably soon, once they understand better) make our kids a little embarrassed. We get the fun of making them cringe and they get to see what it means to be happily married. Win, win.
How about you? Do you talk about sex in front of your kids?
