Sex after having kids can be more challenging than trying to get your wee one to eat a green vegetable. So here’s a thought – why reinvent the wheel? Put your super duper veggie feeding skills to good work in the bedroom.
Dress it up
Take your boring old side dish and turn it into something mouthwateringly good – a little trim here, a little extra lace there. After a bit of TLC, your main course will be hard to resist, and hopefully someone will get their plate licked clean.
It’s in the sauce
Doesn’t everything taste better with a little dip? Get creative and add your own extra “ingredients” (yes, those kind) into your sexual repertoire. Condiments optional, but highly recommended. Just don’t forget to shower after your meal, preferably together.
Sneak it in
If you’re waiting for the one night where you have an extra few hours with nothing to do, your toddlers might be driving. Set your Tivo and and hit the bedroom between laundry loads. You’ll still have the whole night left to crash on the couch and catch up on everything you missed, and your partner might not even know what hit him.
