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.
I was out for dinner with a few of my girlfriends two weeks ago to celebrate the birthday of one of them. Towards the end of the evening, one of the girls mentioned that she couldn’t wait to get home so she could get naked. We all remarked that she must have a happy sex life. She agreed that she did, but she was just referring to crawling under her sheets, sans clothing. She asked if we slept in the buff or not.
I used to, back before we had kids, and I loved it too. But then babies came and with them, leaking mammary glands that needed to be covered. There was also all of the getting up in the night and who wants to fumble for a robe or something when you’re running on no sleep? As my kids got older I stuck with wearing pajamas and now that my oldest boy is old enough to be scarred for life by remember the sight of me if he sees me naked, I’m not about to sleep in the nude anymore.
For the record, I don’t wear a big old-fashioned nightie with a high neck or anything. I have cute winter jammies and a summer tank and shorts that I don after my husband and I have “fun time” and before I drift off to sleep.
How about you? Do you sleep in the buff?
