The biggest struggle about parenting according to one mum isn’t what you would expect.
The mum behind Breastfeeding Mama Talk Facebook page has opened up about her latest battle: sex.
"Constantly being touched and climbed on by my toddler and non-stop nursing from my baby.... When is there time for us?" she wrote.
"I am not sure when the last time we actually had sex when the kids were up?!"
Sharing a very private moment, the mum recounts her last attempt at sex with her husband – and it’s hilariously relatable.
"We (I) fed the family, washed the kids, brushed their teeth, put jammies on them and tucked the kiddos in bed early. I ran to the bedroom turned off Blippi and turned on romantic music.
"Found the lighter from my 2year olds birthday party and got the dust-covered candles lit. I attempted to be sexy ignoring my postpartum naked body society frowns upon. I know he loves every inch of me.
"We get into the warm shower that is quickly losing heat because my kids took most of the hot water. Kissing passionately in our shower we seem to hear phantom cries of our children about every 30 seconds. Trying to catch our footing we hear a loud "SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!" I start cursing the toy dolphin under my breath.
"As we are desperate to keep the mood going we realise the alphabet toys below us.... We are surrounded.... Finally, we both crack up and the sexual mood disappears.
"We get back to best friend mode, laughing so hard we are barely able to catch our breath.”
The couple decided to take a photo “to remember parenting is a crazy ride.”
While some might accuse this mum of oversharing, she believes this is all part of having kids. "If you can’t enjoy your kids and laugh you will never survive being a parent," she writes.
“So here is to the exhausted mums and dads out there trying to be parents every minute of the day attempting to get some together time. Lol! Laugh at life or you won't make it!”
