Basic Tips To Maintain A Sex Life After Having Kids

 

One of the most rewarding elements of being in a relationship involves having kids. It was most couples aim for, and yes, having children is an amazing experience. But they also change things, like putting a damper on your sex life. Because where you once saw your partner as a lover, you now also consider them a caretaker and a parent. And when this perception kicks in, it naturally takes away from the wild sex life you had before.

So, if you and your partner find that you are struggling to get back on track sexually, here are some secrets on how to maintain a sex life after having children.

Come Up With A Schedule

While it might sound blunt and straightforward, you have to start being practical about your sex life if you still want to have one.  It becomes more than just about finding a sturdy mattress.

Things are different now, which means you cannot just enjoy the moment when it strikes. Hence the reason for setting aside special time specifically for intimacy. But what is romantic about setting a time for sex?

At face value, it doesn’t sound romantic. Although, you can make it romantic by building up to the moment. For example, you can send each other texts about what you would like to do when the time comes. There are many ways you can hype up your partner and make them very excited about sex at a specific time.

Get Away From The House

Getting away from familiar surroundings tends to be, in itself, a natural aphrodisiac. Plus, when you are staying over at a hotel for the weekend, you do not have to worry about the kids walking in at the most embarrassing moment. Thus, if your finances allow it, try to spend one or two weekends a month away from the kids. And go to different places as much as possible. Keep in mind that you are trying to break away from the lifestyle you already know.

Get The Kids Away From The House

Alternatively, you can make arrangements for the kids to be gone when you want to have a special night. Do you have family or friends who are willing to babysit? Or why not hire a babysitter to safely keep your kids busy away from home? The point is to become proactive. Because you are not going to get out of a rut if you don’t put in the effort. Which is exactly what you need to do here if you are serious about getting your sex life back on track.

Start Talking About Sexual Fantasies

One of the best things you can do is openly talk with your partner about your sexual fantasies. Remember that people change over time, and so do their preferences. Yes, even when it comes to sex. And for all you know, you and your partner lost your sexual connection because you stopped sharing what you truly desire. So, while kids definitely have an impact on your sex life, they are not the only barriers.

At the end of the day, it takes hard work to keep a relationship healthy and sexually exciting. Don’t be afraid to explore new things, be open and honest with your partner, and start getting practical.

Severe Flooding in Metro Atlanta

Heavy rains have taken their toll in Atlanta and the surrounding area

Several homes and apartments have been damaged in the greater Atlanta metro area.

The flood moved several automobiles in a North Avenue apartment building, causing residents to wonder what to do and how to clean up the mess.

Kristin McAllister spoke with CBS46 and said she watched as people tried to get their cars off of the parking deck.

Mcallister said her and her boyfriend were in the apartment when the rains started. She said after approximately 15 minutes of torrential rain the entire road was flooded. Mcallister went on to say that those living on the bottom row of the apartment complex tried to move their cars to protect them from flooding; however, it soon became apparent that there was nothing they could do.

The bottom row was completely flooded and the rush of water was moving cars and piling them on top of one another.

The force of the flood could be seen all over the apartment complex. Damage occurred to both the exterior of the complex as well as inside more than a dozen apartments. Water removal technicians could be seen getting into different locations with pumps and other equipment.

Residents report that some of their homes had over two feet of standing water inside.

Veronica Smith went on to say that when it rains, the parking lot fills with water. In the past, the water level has gotten over a foot deep and has flooded some of the hallways in the apartment complex.

Portia Bruner of FOX 5 spoke with several residents and discovered that the water level can rise several inches per hour when it rains. They went on to say that they frequently have issues with standing water in and around their vehicles and homes when it rains.

LaShonda Williams said that residents often experience standing water and must wade through mud and water to get to their homes and vehicles.

Maintenance workers did everything they could to minimize the damage by clearing storm drains. The lady in the leasing office reported that the new management of the apartment complex is trying to solve this drainage dilemma.

Elsewhere in the Atlanta metro area, several road were close as streams, rivers and creeks rose suddenly due to the heavy downpours in Atlanta on Wednesday morning.

The water has since gone down and people are calling their insurance companies and AAA to have their cars moved. Maintenance crews are inspecting the damage to the area and working to develop ways to prevent this from occurring in the future.
