Two professional women: both married with kids and both juggling clients, reports, potty training, packed lunches, chores, dogs, cats, errands, husbands and …”what was that you said? SEX?”
That three-letter word that once was so frequent, so liberating, so yummy has been sidelined in a sea of life, work and snot.
It is time.
Time to put sex back on a pedestal by injecting some extra spice into our relationships.


My spawn has taken over my life. I defied him at 35 weeks to sneak in a trip to Schlitterbahn (remember, the hottest coolest time in Texas from last year, aka Schlitterschlong?) with the two older Lee children, but he got back at me by making me dilate and efface ever so slightly. And, since I’m on a mission to beat Lee 1’s birth weight – as a youngest child, I have a weird devotion to giving this child something special since the 1st gets EVERYTHING (I’m the only child in my family without a baby book, and have actually pondered only making one for this baby) – I started taking it easy as soon as I returned.

Are we?

No really, are we?

Translation: Mission: Do It’s key area of interest became a “no fly zone” for Mr. Lee. He was kind of relieved – the thought of possibly feeling the baby’s head really grosses him out, and I’m guessing that kind of introduction to Dad probably grosses the baby out too.

We’re 38 weeks this week. My ankles have only swelled sporadically. I lost four pounds between appointments one week only to gain eight pounds between appointments the following. My house is clean and I’m relatively caught up at work. I treat every Saturday as if it’s my last one to entertain the three existing Lees while Mr. Lee sleeps, which means I have now seen “The Croods”, “Escape from Planet Earth” and “Monsters University”, and have made three visits with three children, a huge tummy and no husband to Richardson’s amazing Terrace Pool. I even got my eyebrows threaded and a bikini wax at Heena this weekend, realizing that doing so after this business goes down would not be a kind thing to ask of Hilda.

And now, I’m climbing the walls, eating Tums like they’re oxygen and getting up at least four times a night to wee and down gulps of chocolate milk directly from the jug. Mr. Lee and I are passing our time together playing Words with Friends, which we’re both new to. Last week, we put 4,000 points each on the Leaderboard (I beat him by 300 overall), and helped the little Lees organize the Legos.

I think it’s time to call this hiatus official. In the meantime, please enjoy this little cupcake from Sara Hickman, courtesy of my mom’s lunch friends (love her husband, or the guy that’s playing him): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWl2Bm4oUlc
