Parent of the Months for October and November

Sorry for not updating sooner. I missed a month so now we have a Parent of the Months for October and November and that Parent of the Months is unicorn_fart!



Kat is a 27 year old stay at home mom and lives in Augusta, GA with her husband and two girls Ingrid, 2, and Ilse, 3.5 months.

"We work very hard to make time for ourselves when the kids go to sleep," Kat says. "I also take time off a few times a week where my husband will watch the kids, and I do the same for him. When we're alone together we pretty much make it a priority to get it on. Sex is important and has a tendency to fall through the cracks when you have small kids. We actually set time aside for it each night." Kat also likes to relax in the bath tub with a glass of wine, hang out on lj, and knit.Read more...Collapse )
