Those :oops: moments…
While I was apart for my husband for a week and a half, I thought I would treat him, since I was texting him right after I got out of the shower. With the wiping the steam off the mirror at just the right place, my face and other parts could be hidden while he got a look at “his fawns”… with a message to delete soon, since in was in his texts.
The 😳 part…. last night as we were talking about a son and some choices, it went to “covenant eyes”, which my husband and sons are “accountability patners”… I suddenly realized my son may have gotten a screen shot of my photo for his dad. When I mentioned it to my husband, he said he had already thought about it and he came up with an answer if our son said something…. “Don’t you recognize them, you’ve seen them before [breastfeeding] ;), then he would go to the truth and points to ways of the married. Geez….parenthood. 🙂
This morning DH had just come in the bedroom after our joint shower. We had lazily enjoyed each other’s company and uninhibited conversation, though I don’t recall anything overtly sexual. Suddenly, while we were both still naked (except for his underwear) DD opened her bedroom door and shouted, “I’m going to shower! Finally! I’ve been waiting for like a half an hour!” I hollered back (as a warning) “We’re both naked in here!” because our door was still open and she would have to pass it to get to the bathroom. DH hid in the closet and I got closer to the wall, out of eye-shot (too far away to get it closed without coming face to face at exactly the wrong moment) and saw her scurry by with her face covered, lol. The perils of everyone deciding we are too tired to shower at night on the same night and having only one shower!
If our new showering together habit wasn’t obvious before, it is now! 😀
Oh man. These are some funny stories. We’ve embarrassed our kids on numerous occasions with conversation and txts. Sometimes being blunt is more hilarious and just accepting that they got the truth about our relationship.
One of my fave stories was when wife asked daughter what/who she heard one afternoon while we were making love. DD1 (my step D) said she heard her mom and then she scampered off from the living room to hide in her room. We were at the table eating dinner and wife turned stage 3 sunburnt red from her chest to the top of her head. We were in tears…and W always figured it was me DD1 heard. Thankfully it was her mom and we’ll never forget that experience.
I had a portable Playstation in Iraq… my wife had loaded some pictures of herself on it before sending it to me…when I got home, it went to the donate pile for a church yard sale yet I forgot about the pictures…the following Sunday after the yard sale, the woman were all looking at my wife funny, because it had gotten around that the boy who got the Playstation saw all the pictures. While all the ladies told her in private they thought what she did was awesome… I was in the serious dog house for that one
I was watching a woman on TV discussing what makes marriage flourish, and of course one of the factors she mentioned was having a good sex life. My wife was in the kitchen, and I turned in that direction and said something like ‘…see, we need to make sure we are ‘kicking boots’ as often as we can…’.. Expecting to hear my wife, I was mortified to hear my daughter say ‘…hey Dad, I am sitting right here!….” Unbeknownst to me she was sitting at the kitchen table at a spot that was out of my field-of-view! I don’t think I said anything but I did change the channel.
This nearly happened to us, this weekend. Both of us were on separate guys (all family) and gals (all friends) retreats. We had a thread going between one of our kids/grandkids families and both of us. I sent a text meant ONLY for Mrs. Oldbear, thinking I was 1-1 with her (NOT!) that was borderline TMI. A good thing I didn’t add my last unvarnished thought 😳. Later that morning, my son-in-law chuckled and said, ‘Saw your text to Mom!’ Whew!
I doubt that you scarred him to the point of psychiatric help. 🤣 . We had a wedding (daughter number 3) at our house this last weekend. During the push for everyone to get dressed in time I ended up in my bedroom getting dressed with two of the other three daughters busy taping up boobies. Backs to me – and me to them – everyone had a giggle and got on with it. 🤷♂️
So…do tell, did your son ever say anything? Or is it gonna come up at a family dinner 2-10 years from now? Or even at your funeral as the kids reflect on memories of you? LOL! As I previously mentioned, it took 2 years for my bonus daughter to admit to what happened.
