Today is Valentines Day, Miss Rose’s very first, and our first with a baby.
We celebrate Valentines Day unashamedly. Not in an over the top way, but we thoroughly enjoy a good excuse to buy each other a funny little gift, give each other cheesy cards, and have a wonderful date night followed by a bit of sexy time.
Since having our little baby we’ve obviously had a great deal of change in our sex life. Our relationship is pretty much the same when we’re out of the bedroom; we’ve always been affectionate people, and always tease and joke with each other, and if anything Miss Rose has just increased that aspect of our lives. She’s brought us closer together in a lot of ways, tied by the eternal bond of offspring. But now we have a baby in our bed and neither of us are the type to think having sex with her in the same bed is okay. Now my boobs, once his playthings, belong to her. He’s so freaked out by the idea he might get squirted in the eye by booby juice that even when she’s not attached to them he doesn’t want to get too close. Now my nighttime routine involves going to bed early and springing awake at various intervals to either plug her in or change her nappy… or poke him in the back until he wakes up and making him change her nappy.
Times have changed. Obviously having her in the bed isn’t a permanent move, indeed we’re planning to start moving her over to her cot gradually from next week when we’ve finished moving and are in a bigger room. So perhaps next year it will be different? I don’t know. But what I do know is that tonight things will be different. Will we get our naked jiggy time? I don’t know, probably not. But I do know that it will be a noticeable change. A giant naked elephant in the middle of the room laughing at us.
We are not letting having a baby stop us from the rest of our Valentines routine though, do not fear! Presents will be opened and giggled over, cards will be read, and kisses exchanged. A table is booked at one of our favourite restaurants for tonight, and they have said we can have a four person booth so the baby seat can fit next to us. She will be right there with us, probably getting more attention from both of us than we’ve ever given to each other, and featuring in far more kissy photographs than we will.
But really if Valentines Day is about love, either finding new love or celebrating existing love, then what better way to celebrate it than with the person we love more than anything in the entire universe; our baby? To the world she is just one person, but to us she’s the whole world.
We can get by without a night of passionate, chandelier swinging, bed breaking, carpet burning, thigh tingling sex. Having her, our true love, with us makes up for all of it.
