I miss feeling wanted.
The whole push you up against a wall in a really aggressive kiss that leaves you breathless kind of wanted.
(And yes, agressive IS the word I am looking for here, agressive can be good).
I miss lingering kisses that promise more later.
I miss looks across the room and sly smiles.
I miss feeling sexy.
I miss feeling sensual.
It’s so easy to lose these things when you become a parent.
You don’t have time.
You’re too tired.
What will everyone else think?
What kind of an example would you be setting for your children?!
To be honest, I think the example I would be sending my children is that I am a confident woman.
I am in a relationship that doesn’t need to change or lose it’s spark just because I have children.
I love myself enough to not sacrifice my sexuality just because I am a parent.
OBVIOUSLY I am not talking about having them witness to everything because that is child abuse.
But why is it so wrong for children to see a passionate kiss between parents?
I miss wanted.
My god I miss that feeling.
I will find that again.
