I just had my first child in April. While his presence in our household has changed everything, it has yet to impact my sex life with my husband. Sure, we’re a bit more tired these days because, you know, babies don’t sleep, but we try not to let that get in the way of our one-on-one time.
Fortunately, we don’t have to worry about our son walking in on us doing the nasty – but a recent post that went viral showed me glimpse into our future – when our precious little boy catches us in the act.
Irish mom and blogger Emma Lou Harris recently took to Facebook to share the cringe-worthy moment when her 3-year-old daughter Frankie walked in on mom and dad doing the deed.
After a couple of beers and watching her husband empty the dishwasher (you know it’s hot when you don’t have to ask!), Harris was revved up and ready to go. So, she and her husband, Joe, quickly put the kids to bed.
“Things were getting heated,” Harris writes. “We were just getting to the bit of the act about half way through where you actually consider going professional and you wonder why you ain’t teaching these kinda moves on some sort of intense weekend course for beginners.”
Then, midway through their horizontal mambo, it happened: a voice was calling for mommy from inside their bedroom. That’s right: mom and dad’s mid-mambo interruption came from their little girl who simply needed mom’s help finding her pacifier.
While Harris was busy hoping the sound was coming from a poltergeist, dad was leaping off her and onto the floor. “Joe is huddled in the corner of the room under a white duvet, rocking back and forth like he’s going through an exorcism all the while muttering pleads to Jesus under his breathe that this isn’t happening,” she writes.
Can you blame him for that reaction? I’m pretty sure most dads would do the same thing!
While the experience was traumatizing for these parents, their little girl didn’t seem to notice. She just needed her pacifier and was back to bed without any issues.
I’m pretty sure their daughter won’t remember this moment, but it’s not any less traumatizing for the couple. In fact, mom and dad are still recovering from the incident.
“Myself and Joe are due to finish our Trauma Counselling sometime in the year 2045,” Harris says.
How would you react if your kids walked in on you having sex? Has it ever happened to you? Tell us in comments.
