A post for the Dads – what is sexy has changed.

sexy has changed

So this post is something a little bit different today.  After a number of conversations that I’ve had with other women in my life recently, I think this is something that needs to be said.  If you agree with me on these points, feel free to send this one to your man.


So for the Dad’s out there, this one is for you. I’ll keep it short and sweet because I know you’ll appreciate that.


What’s sexy has changed.


I know it used to be so easy.  When we had so much time up our sleeve and so much sleep in our lives. Then we decided that we were so madly in love that we wanted to create little miniature versions of ourselves, and they turned our world and our love upside down.


I need you to know that now… what’s sexy has changed.


Now… sexy is you unpacking the dishwasher without me having to ask.

Sexy is the way you carry a sleeping child from the car to their bed and soothe them back to sleep.

Sexy is… when I’ve had an hour, or half a day or even a whole day to myself (and actually been able to miss being touched.)

Sexy is when I come home to not just alive children, but also a house that is in reasonable order.

Sexy is… you cooking dinner.

Sexy is the tender way you hold me when I cry over things that probably feel unreasonable you who still spends a lot of time in the real world, but when you’re surrounded by children all day, they feel very real to me.

Sexy is you putting your clothes in the dirty clothes basket, rather than the floor.

Sexy is when you’re the one who gets out of bed to put the baby back to sleep when he/she wakes for the billionth time in as many hours.

Sexy is your confidence, even when I feel like I’ve lost mine.

Sexy is you sharing your funny stories about your day that happened outside the bubble of family life.

Sexy is a text message just to check in, even though you know our days look mostly the same, day in, day out.

Sexy is when you have a real conversation with me, and help me feel like my brain still works underneath the mush of motherhood.



What’s sexy has changed for me… has it changed for you?
