~~~ Tip of the Week ~~~

A Close Shave
by Jill B
http://www.TheRomantic.com/

Every so often my husband and I steal of little private time in the
bath. And what started as a practical solution during our pregnancy
(we have 6-yr old twins), often continues to drawn us together
While extremely pregnant, it became next to impossible to shave my
legs — and so it wasn’t a priority for me. But a good soak in the
bathtub was heaven. (Water relieved the extra weight I carried, and
our antique claw-foot tub could hold lots of water.) Though at times
I resembled (and felt like) a beached whale, it was a neat time of
togetherness as I eased my aches and chatted with my hubby seated
close by.

He thoroughly enjoyed watching the children (i.e. my belly) shift
and roll. We still comment on the time our daughter (it was her
usual location anyway) stretched and kicked me with a movement that
“punched out” a good two inches. My husband excitedly asked, “Did
you see that?” I reminded him that I not only saw it, but I FELT if
as well….)

On one of these occasions, he shared that he’d appreciate me shaving
my legs. When the difficulty of this was made apparent, he
volunteered to do the job himself. Talk about needing to trust
one’s partner!

Long story short: He really enjoys doing this — and takes great
pride in his work. It’s become a real win-win situation. He easily
reaches what are (for me) awkward angles. He also makes a special
point of reaching areas that can “rub him the wrong way” in bed if
overlooked (something he’s usually to polite to share with me).

We have a small four-legged, plastic step-stool that fits over the
edge of the tub, providing him with a comfortable, front-row seat
for the proceedings. He soaks his feet at the same time. We’ve
learned one of the kids’ water sprinkler buckets/bath toy does a
great and focused job of rinsing the newly shaven leg.

Though this is not something we discuss with the general public,
it’s a very special time for both of us. We talk about anything and
nothing and just have an enjoyable time together. There’s nothing
overtly se.xual/sensual; it’s just time spent together without
physical barriers, literally.

(Come to think of it, I can remember as a child that Mom would often
sit by, chat and scrub my Dad’s back, etc., on those few occasions
when he took baths instead of his usual shower. Maybe it’s
genetic!)
