Women's attitudes seem to be that when their kids need water they're thirsty, but when their husband wants lovin' he's a jerk!
My husband and I have a great marriage and an amazing love life. When friends ask how to get their husbands to look at them the way mine looks at me, I tell them it's simple: sex for men is a need. If my kids are thirsty in the middle of the night, I get them water and take care of their needs, so why should my husband's needs be any less important?
I hear women tell me how tired they are and I laugh. I'm a stay-at-home mom with 7 and 9-year old children who I homeschool. I double as the teacher, housekeeper, gardener, chauffeur and chef. When friends tell me how tired they are, I tell them, "I'd be much more tired if I were doing this alone, which is more likely to happen if you don't take care of your man (and besides, a little lovin' helps everyone sleep better)."
Thanks, Dr. Laura for all of your great advice over the years and, on a personal note, thanks so much for supporting home schooling: knowing you were supportive really helped give me the courage to do it and it has been amazing! Thank you so much!
