A hungover follow up to last night's post

Disclaimer: Yet again, for those of you who are not so interested in my sex have been forewarned.

So...this morning? Let's just say my lips were still stained purple.


Lots of wine + no dinner = Lots of pain this morning

But wait...wanna hear the ironic part?

After all of that ranting and raving last night about the life-sucking and flame-dousing...After that drunken heart-felt co-authored post...After all that complaining and whining about hard it is to keep it all going? You wanna know what happened when my newly-named Chris and I logged off and went to get off and roll around in the shared ecstasy of the wine and the words?

Teething happened.

That's right...the one-year-old sleeps through the night 95% of the time, but last night? Nope. Shrieks. Screams. Tears. Cries of "Mama! Dada!" ringing throughout the house. At first, we almost laughed...Oh, how funny is this, huh? Well, let's just stop in the middle of our flame-fanning and just check in on him. Surely, he will settle down as he always does. No big deal. We'll be back to our play in no time.

One hour, one diaper change, 4 baby-room visits, and 1 teaspoon of Tylenol later, I hit that moment when you realize: "Oh. Crap. I don't feel too good." Next thing I know, it's 4:30 in the morning and I'm on the wrong side of the bed. I don't remember much, but I do know there was absolutely no grand ending to our drunken evening.

As much as I can appreciate Aidan reinforcing our whole point on life and marriage and sex....well, I think I would've preferred he just stay quiet and had allowed us to simply blog and bang.


  1. God I remember those days! One word of advice, Don't lose each other in this time of your lives. It is the reason I am alone today.

  2. Can't help myself. You made me laugh. Going through tums and tylenol, too. No teething, though.

  3. LOL!!!!!! I was just SO sure that you'd end up getting lucky! Ah well; such is life. Just keep each other in your sights and keep trying, you'll get there! Pretty soon those babies will be bigger and you'll have more free time. Just don't forget each other.

  4. i will be using the term "blog and bang". You should trademark it. Sorry it didn't happen for you last night.. you talked it up too much and jinxed yourself!

  5. I'm laughing. Not at you, but with you. With you 100%. And "blog and bang" is also entering my vocabulary.

  6. "Blog and bang" may become an event! Will have to find the right person so that they will understand.

    I laughed hard at this....

  7. Oh Lizzie Liz Liz. "Blog and Bang" if just absolutely fabulous! Love it in every way. Damn those children and their itty bitty teeth. Damn reality what it smacks you in the face like that. Damn 4:30 am and the wrong side of the bed. Just Damn.

    But if anything, you created "Blog and Bang" so yay.

  8. That's pretty much how it would have gone down at my house. The kids sleep like rocks , unless we have after hours plans.
    Oh well, don't give up. There is always next week.

  9. Hi again. I have an award for you so put on your party dress and come to the Awards Bash.

  10. Bahahaha! Let's see we've got drunk blogging followed by Blog and Bang...this is a wild bunch! Gotta love it!

    Great post!

  11. Kids, they really know how to toss water onto the flame, non?
