There are a few universal truths that become apparent immediately after having children: you’re not going to sleep for about a decade, you’ll develop a newfound appreciation for stretchy pants, and your sex life? Well, that’s gonna be a little … different, let’s say. If not totally nonexistent. (Please see: lack of sleep and appreciation for stretchy pants.)
But even if we’re not getting much action, at least we can find a way to laugh about it, right? Which is why we are loving this new video by Meredith Masony of the blog That’s Inappropriate called “Are You Serious: It’s a School Night.” In it, she pokes fun at all the reasons why she (and pretty much every mom ever) is so not up for some action mid-week.
Some of our favorite excuses (that we may or may not have used ourselves at one point or another):
Are you serious? I had a chili dog for lunch, OK?
I haven’t showered in three days and I smell like a bag of onions.
I don’t want to cuddle. I know what cuddling means. Cuddling means that at some point your pants come off and I have to do things.
Are you serious? It’s a school night.
