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.
A guest post over at the NY Times Motherlode blog titled, “The Sex Life Of Parents” caught my eye because, well, I’m a parent who has had sex at least three times, based on the number of my children. In the article, the author talks about the radar that toddlers seem to have - they may be fast asleep, but as soon as you head to your own room for some “alone time”, they wake up and need water/snacks/a cuddle.
I’m here to tell you that it’s true. So, so true. It’s the worst when they are in the baby and toddler stage, though. Now that my kids are school aged, they generally sleep all night unless they are sick or have a bad cold. There is HOPE, is what I’m saying.
The article talks about having a lock on your bedroom door to keep the party poopers out and while a lock isn’t going to stop them from banging on your door and calling for you, it will stop them from seeing something that will make them want to wash out their eyes, ala Modern Family. So, yes, we have a lock on our door and use it on those nights where we don;t want to be “interrupted.”
How about you? Do you have a lock on your bedroom door? And do you use it?
