Wishful Thinking

The Family Joy was gathered in the kitchen.

The Mayor and The Rooster were involved in some made up game where The Mayor repeatedly covered The Rooster with a blanket.

The Mayor, wanting to switch the game so that the blanket would cover him, turned to The Rooster and said,

"Hey! DO ME!"

The Rooster, responding to her brother's request, said,
"OH-KAY!"

K was sitting on the kiddie play table and I was smooching on him.

K, hearing The Mayor's comment to his sister, broke apart from my kiss and said,

"Hey! DO ME!"

...and I, kissed him again and said,

"OH-KAY!"


But let's be real.

Did we see any action at The House of Joy after this looooong day with the short people?

cute ;)

...kids get too much of the fun, don't they!

Jenifer said...

Oh and they are long, better luck next time!

Reality, parent-style.

;)

Mary Alice said...

My advice? Get in all the sex you can while your kids are between grades 2-5...that's when they go to bed when they should and you'll be less exhausted....once they hit the teen years they're back to weird toddler sleeping patterns and coming home late in the evening. There is no way you can out-stay-up a teenager to get some quiet nooky time with your spouse!

Janet a.k.a. "Wonder Mom" said...

You are too funny.

At least I'm not the only one too tired after a long day with the short person!!!

Little Miss Moi said...

Dear oh the joys. Hahaha! Out of the mouths of babes come words that grown up use for a totally different meaning. As a childless wife, I can't give any recommendations about 'quality time' when the kids are in grades 2 - 5, but I'll be checking back on these comments and writing notes for the future!

WILLIAM said...

That is so sad. Especially for K

Twisted Cinderella said...

Too cute!

slouching mom said...

Poor, poor y'all.

I think you'll find a way, though.

QT said...

Woman with kids said...

At least the idea was there...

Shannon said...

Gotta love the double entendre.

radical mama said...

I hail your photoshopping skillz!

Paige said...

Action? What's that? I don't remember.

mcewen said...

It's more of a modern architectural conspiracy = no locks on the doors!
cheers

aimee / greeblemonkey said...

Ha! Love it.

Life As I Know It said...

LOL...better luck next time ;)

Lisa Milton said...

Weight Watchers is paying off - you look quite fetching in your black get-up.

Thanks for the laugh.

May 'love' find a way.

Mrs. Chicky said...

Wow, your waist is really small.

Christina_the_wench said...

Sex and a kiddie play table? Whoa. Never tried that one.

health watch center said...

Hello Joy,

Lovely blog... I liked all your posts and rest of the posts..........
He is very nice person try to siviot

NotSoSage said...

Next time, just tell them mommy and daddy are going to play the blanket game in their room for a while...

Sigh.

DD said...

First off: if one is going to spam blogs, take some effing grammer lessons (yeah, I'm talking to you Health Watch Center).

Second off: yeah. I'm usually the second off on the Do Me game.

jen said...

long days with the short people, indeed.

does chip away at the something something.

Kevin Charnas said...

Once again, your boobs look fantastic in that pic.

Heather said...

Where there is a will, there is a way.

urban-urchin said...

"He is very nice person try to siviot" ? Sounds kinky- perhaps worth investigating this siviot.

I can never let my husband read your blog because then he'll see that there are women who have a sex drive where he is married to a woman who's sex drive died while giving birth....

Bon said...

you just come on over dressed like that anytime, friend. purr.

but, um...wait until a day where the baby's in daycare, okay, cause i'm, like, expending all my affection in that direction most of the time.

sigh.

Gingers Mom said...

You sound like non stop fun. LOL... Better luck next time. It is amazing how they can just suck your will to do it right out of you.

The Queen Mama said...

Man, do I know that feeling. At least ya'll are keepin' the romance alive, whether the deed is done or not. And that's half the battle!

Stephanie said...

Bethany woke last night in the middle of the night with a fever of 102. I medicated her, and then she insisted on coming to be with me. That was fine. But then she wanted all her toy bunnies in bed with us. That, also, was sorta fine. Then she sat up and kissed each one. Okay. Then she insisted I kiss each one. Alrighty. Then she insisted her Daddy kiss each one. He went to the couch.

Yeah, the only action around here is with stuffed bunnies. Pathetic.

cronznet said...

Being a Scorpio I simply insist that the wild sex happen, even if it has to be scheduled. Keep tryin', find some good babysitters and until then please keep the laughs coming (since not much else seems to be)!

Queen Karana said...

LMAO!!!

flutter said...

No Bow Chika? Damn the luck!

Aliki2006 said...

LOVE the picture!!!!!!!!!

creative-type dad said...

I'm liking the 'fro. It's a nice look.

Lawyer Mama said...

Ah, sigh. It sounds like so many of our nights too!

Stepping Over the Junk said...

HA! Very cute. You gotta take what you can get sometimes!

Catizhere said...

Maggie asked me to "bite her heiney" last night.
Joe says, "Me Too!!"

Mag got her nibble. Joe, not so much.

Funny, I was thinking about you last night... not *that way...
I was watching tv and a commercial for AXE Body Spray came on & the girl sings, "Bow Chica WahWah....." SIGH, I'll never hear porn music again in the same way.

BOSSY said...

Bossy doesn't mind getting busy in the morning - unless she has too much to do, which is always. And she doesn't mind getting busy in the afternoon - unless she is still too busy, which is always. And she really enjoys getting busy in the pitch black dark i mean you can't see anything of night - unless she is too tired which is always.

Augs Casa said...

well you hit the nail on the head. This is the everyday happenings at Augs Casa.

jennster said...

WHORE! LOL
just kidding.. lol

Biddy said...

that's so funny! think i'll get some nooky in your honor tonight ;-)

Kyla said...

Hahahaha! Too bad.

Biddy said...

oh, p.s. when the kids are old enough to bathe themselves without much supervision (you know, i can hear them splashing so they're not dead...or make them sing in the tub..if they stop singing, go lifeguard on em)...GREAT time for a quickie..

don't ask me how i know this... :-)

Chris H said...

I bet ya DIDN'T...

Amber said...

Ahhhh yes. The ultimate aphrodesiac...

Shauna said...

Love it. Too bad, though.
At least you had the idea. I can't remember the last time I had such an idea...

notfearingchange said...

you make marriage and family sooooo cute! i love it.

Slackermommy said...

You're killing me! Can't wait to have a cocktail with you at Blogher. Love the photo.

Flawed & Disorderly said...

Better luck this weekend! :D

Terri said...

Oh boy!

FENICLE said...

We have a pillow on our bed that someone gave us as a wedding gift. One side says "Not tonight" the other side says "Tonight".

Can you guess which side it's on 99% of the time????

moosh in indy. said...

I almost got some until I looked down to see a hair, you know where, then I thought of you and dolmas. Moment shot and my husband would have never understood why.

King Isepik said...

We don't have a pillow here in the castle, but I hear you, Fenicle.

I'm sad to hear that there will be no chicken in the House of Joy. What makes me sadder is there will be no chicken in the castle either. :)

Keep on tryin', eh? :)

kara said...

ha! Good luck next time!

Nancy said...

I get it. Those little people just tire you out so all you can do at the end of the day is just crash in bed. (And I don't mean Crash like the Dave Mathews song, if you get my drift...)
