Marriage Monday - What Are You Wearing?
On cold nights, there is nothing better than slipping into a pair of flannel pajamas and warm fuzzy socks. Maybe even a big fuzzy robe to go with it.
Don't throw out your flannels yet! Try this: wear something for your guy under your flannels. Then when the kids are in bed and it is just the two of you, slip off the flannels to reveal something just for him. (It is even better if you can convince your guy to go to the bedroom to watch tv, read or play games, that way you are in the privacy of your room in case a kiddo decides to get up.)
Now I am not necessarily telling you to reveal all of Victoria's secrets, but you can wear a silk or lacy cami and matching panties under warm flannels. And to stay warm, snuggle up close to your husband. He will love that you are close and wearing very little.
I can hear you now. I can't dress that way because I am too big or I'll dress like that after I lose another twenty pounds or my body is just not pretty. Girls, hear me out. Your man loves your body. It doesn't matter if you are a size two or a size twenty. Your man loves you. To him, you are sexy. To him, you are beautiful. Please never let feelings of insecurity get in the way. Your man loves you just the way you are. Where you see an overweight, tired mom, he sees one hot mama!
If you don't have anything to wear under your flannels, you don't have to spend a small fortune at some department store. Places like Walmart, Kmart and Target have pretty camis and matching panties that won't break the bank. You can buy one set a week for the next few weeks and build up your "for him only" drawer. This is considered a wise investment.
So to sum up ladies. Dress warm and modest. Then when the kids are safely tucked into bed, ask your hubby if he wouldn't mind watching tv in the bedroom tonight. Then slip off the flannels to reveal something special for him and slip into the covers to snuggle while you relax. He will be pleased and you will have done something special just for him.
This winter, don't cover completely up. Give your husband something special to look at. Remember he loves you.
