If your kids are anything like mine, they have a sixth sense for when their parents want to get a little hanky panky going. I'll lean over to kiss my husband and my 8-month-old will wake up just in time to stop us from smooching. It's a total mood-killer. Nights like those, we generally give up on any thoughts of sexy time and just stick to the Netflix part of "Netflix and chill." That's when I'm glad I've already added the steamiest shows to watch on Netflix to my queue. Who has time to waste hunting down shows to watch when you're already grumpy because you can't have sex?
I mean, if the baby is going to block me from doing much more than cuddling up with hubby at night, I might as well take advantage of the mood. It's the only chance I have to see grown ups doing grown-up things on television. Having two older, curious children means my husband and I can't watch sexy Netflix shows until after their bed time (we don't want to have to answer the loaded question, "Mommy, why is he on top of her?")We just put our own steamy thoughts on pause while we live vicariously through these characters. At least, until the baby goes back to sleep.
