If there’s anything we should all be focusing on right now it’s romance. I mean, what better time?
If you live with your special someone, you are around each other every waking moment (or at least within shouting distance). Those two-day-old pjs have never looked sexier, and “did I brush my teeth this morning?” is a question you both tease each other with (“You’re so funny!” “No, YOU’RE so funny!!”). Not to mention, those cute kids you created are now home with you 24/7! If that doesn’t spell out l-e-t-s p-r-o-c-r-e-a-t-e I don’t know what will.
And since The Mom Edit team are experts on the Arts of Love, we thought we’d do the world a solid, and round up our best tips for keeping romance alive during this #StayAtHome phase.
How To Keep The Romance Alive While Stuck #AtHome, 24/7
Tip 1: Well…hello there, Jaime
Personally, my go-to tip is to simply watch Outlander…but fast-forward to all of the sex scenes. On the downside, the children have to be safely sleeping in bed, but on the upside, the husband isn’t 100% required. Perfect if you love an accent as much as I do.
Tip 2: Wear Leather & Spike Your Hair
The second tip comes from our friend Laura. She finds that adding an extra-long spike to her hair (since it won’t be cut anytime soon) has the happy side of effect of pairing nicely with leather…wink, wink.
Tip 3: Let Distance Make The Heart Grow Fonder
We have our introverts (Jess and well…myself) to thank for this genius tip: simply don’t talk. Don’t speak. Maybe…maybe just spend the day in completely different rooms. If he tries to ask for dinner, make shushing noises and hide in a closet. He’ll thank you later.
Tip 4: Try Dark Rituals of Questionable Origin
Syd claims this will work every time. If you needs more specifics, check the Player’s Handbook…or ask your Dungeon Master.
Tip 5: Light a Candle & Be Bathroom Buddies
Scotti pointed out that the bathroom already has a candle in it…why not just lock yourselves in and light allllll the flames?
Tip 6: Pitch A Tent In The Living Room
If the living room mess starts to dampen the mood, do as S suggests and just pitch a tent. In the middle. Of the room. ‘Cause nothing is more romantic than the two of you reading directions together while you work on a project that also requires clean up! By the end, I’m sure another tent will be pitched ifyaknowwhatImean.
I am feeling it. Dare I say I am getting a little turned on just by thinking of putting one or two of these plans into action?! (I’m blushing.)
Here’s to keeping that sexy isolation romance alive, ladies!
Find me over on the gram (@camilledipaola) for more #TotallyCasualMotherhood moments.
?Nailed it (ooo, or do I mean _him_?).
which ‘him’ are we referring to? The real or fiction?
I knew we could count on you Cam. Thank you lol <3
and Shana! She sprinkled some of her magic into this one, too. xo.
Hahahahahaa! Excellent 4/1 content.
You’re the first and only person to mention it. Cheers.
omg. Thank you for this. Safe to say any children created during this time will be firstborns.
BAHA! Poor innocent, naive and kidless couples…soon they will know. This isolation crap is NOTHING in comparison to the event that is having a first child. hehe. 😉
Yesssss…. so many laughs throughout this read and laughter and sunshine will get us through this isolation stuff!!!! Outlander definitely “hits the spot”?
Oooh yes. Yes, it does.
I am laughing so hard! Thanks for this!
You are more than welcome.
This was actually exactly what I need today. Amazing. Going to go pitch a tent right now.
Don’t forget the s’mores!
Just what I needed to read after a long day ??
To quote my 5 year-old, “Yaaassssss Queen!” AWESOME.
PERFECTION! And yes, tip #3, totally ME as well. Thanks for a good laugh, these are few and far between, but soooo needed these days.
