Re: Are we stuck in the 1950's???
I couldn't even make it through the first few sentences of that piece. It was so precious it made me want to crawl under my couch.
Once I recovered I was able to scan a few points and the whole thing sounds completely insufferable. Dress up for your husband? In what? Your baggy, overworked maternity crap or you too tight, uncomfortable pre-pregnancy stuff? New dad gifts, Daddy diapering kit, oral gratification, flashing (what is this marti gras!?). After giving birth I feel about as sexy as a canned ham. If my husband really wants to witness my gratitude first hand then he can pick up Chinese food on the way home to spare me from having to step foot in my kitchen.
This in no way is any reflection of the love that I have for my husband, but I'm not going to go above and beyond to make him a happy camper when I've just produced a human being from my body.
