Jacqueline asked:
My energy and time is mostly spent on my boy and work. After my boy sleeps, I would prefer to relax and watch TV, so how do I make myself more sexually active?

oink17 answered:
Oh yes, whether sex is important in a marriage, i would think so. Based on what i know from the marriage preparation course, it is important to have sex, so as to satisfy both physical needs. I distinctively remember the words from the wife of the mentor in that course: "you and your spouse have physical needs that need to be satisfy. You do not want that need to be left empty and hence losing that special bond. That's why it is called love making."

You may want to consider seeking help for someone to babysit your children. For me, my mom offers to help babysit my 2 children over the weekends whenever I need. That way, you can have some quiet & romantic time alone with your hubby. A special date will also ignites the passion and keeps the romance going. Keep the atmosphere at home dim on special nights and you may feel yourself wanting more.

Thank you everyone. My baby still remembers me..hee..it is nice to be back home and be able to do my own things instead of having to settle baby especially when I am super shag like what happened on friday. Not a bad idea, oink17!

How about for the next couple time, you go for a dinner, then go for dessert and no movie? Then you will have time to pick up your baby from your mum place. Like this, you will not feel so guilty then.

oink17 answered:
Jacqueline, its normal to feel guilty to be away from baby when you are out with your husband. Most mums will feel this way. Don't worry that your baby will not like you anymore, you will still be their first love when they are back to their normal routine. Having a baby doesn't mean you have to give up your time with husband or personal time. I think you need time to adjust to leaving baby care to others once a month.

Jacqueline answered:
I am taking oink17's suggestion - couplehood times. I am going to a movie with my hubby this coming Friday but I do feel guilty about leaving baby to sleep at my mum's place for the night as it would be too late to pick him up after the movie. It is as if I am abandoning him to enjoy.

Jacqueline answered:
(continued from last post, press the wrong button & post was submitted) which is probably why I do not enjoy anything that he planned for. For eg. he would suggest having a drink after my boy sleeps or play some music while having a drink. Like Felicia's hubby, mine would always like to get intimate with me but I am not one who loves sex. Hence this is an issue which we are still trying to deal with.
