Found a Man in my bed!!!

By August 30, 2010 - 11:50pm

I have been married for 12 plus years and the other night I just discovered a man in my bed! on the outside he looks like the "boy" I married, but much wiser, rougher and rugged (which is pretty cool :) ) Turns out that he is still pretty infactuatuated with the pretty young lassie he married and is all about keeping her happy. The problem is that the pretty young lassie has turned into this old maid with grey hair and scheduled vaccinations, kindergarden registrations, daily meal plans, horse lessons on her mind. Handsome young cowboy???? Oh if only!!! On top of the school and lessons her cowboy has turned into this stressed out/annoyed/irritable un-shaven tobacco chewing pig wanting dinner and a shower! Which to some gals is a roughneck, others it is a chore. Where is the middle? When we are single and imagine this dirty, tobacco chewing cowboy coming home, we get the fakes in the bar, hoping one day to be a roughneck. When we have the real deal working hard to give us our dreams we are too tired to give thanks. Where is the middle? The happy-medium? The sunset in the western Manitoba canola fields where the lassie and the over-worked romantic farmer meet?

Girl, I have been married just over a year and I can already relate to your post. Kids are all-consuming and life will beat a person down over time. I'm not complaining - just stating facts.
I say - just be glad your man still holds his affection for you. Many lose the desire to please their wives (in more ways than one). Consider yourself lucky!
Great post! Thanks for joining!

A collection of stories written by stay-at-home-moms, single moms, married moms ... you get the idea. It's the flip side of what most of us have seen in groups or websites so far. This group is to give mommy's everywhere a platform to be brutally honest. For example, I once wondered if there was a procedure for kids that was similar to the one that "de-barked" dogs. Don't gasp and act like you're shocked or offended just because I said it out loud. We are all human with human emotions and limits (plus hormones). This is a place you can vent and be honest without fear of judgment or criticism.
