Lock and Knock

Monday, March 2, 2009

You didn’t ask but I’m just sayin’ …

Is it karma, payback or God’s sense of humor that every time Husband and I lock the door to get our groove on one of our children comes knocking on it?

OK, maybe not EVERY time, but enough that it makes me wonder. Do children have some sixth sense that alerts them when their parents are about to embark in some good ol’ fashion love making? Don’t they know that when Mama’s happy everybody’s happy and they should let Mama be happy every now and then?

It’s hard enough to find the time to lock the door so when I finally do the last thing I want to hear is a knock on it. And it doesn’t matter what time of the day or night it is – a midnight night escapade or a 6 a.m. quickie – I’m always prepared to hear:

Knock, knock, knock … "Mama, why is the door locked?"

To keep your little ass out!

No, I don’t really say that – out loud anyway – but soon their going to be old enough to know why the door is locked then my conspiracy theory will be confirmed. Until then, I’ll continue to shoo them away with the quickest – and cleanest – thing that comes to mind.

Do your kids come knocking as soon as you turn the lock? And what do you tell them? Door lockin’ mamas want to know…

Winks & Smiles,

I have to admit we had no locks on any doors in my house growing up. But we knew that if the door to my parent's room was shut we should get our short selves elsewhere! We didn't know why - but we knew. LOL

I'm with Cairo Typo; we didn't have locked doors growing up, but a closed door meant to knock or better yet, STAY AWAY. As for my husband and I, we never locked doors either, but sure received an uninvited guest every now and then and had to pause our passion. Now that the boys are older (10,13), we don't have a problem with it. I guess our closed door time is a time for them to get into something without us looking at them (LOL).

I can't remember if my parents locked their doors, but I do remember seeing it shut - and when I got old enough to know why. But, yes, my kids are 7 and 5 and I'm truly thankful for my locks ... I'm teaching them the classics, "If the house is not on fire or if your not bleeding don't knock," but until they get it I'm locking it down. Smiles!

Awww, you have me cracking up!!! I love calling my hubby home for lunch. The kids are at school and the house is ours. That works best for us. But when they were younger it seemed like they did have a six sense.

Ladies, I'm with Wifey on lockin' the doors! However, when I do hear that knock..."love" evaporates and my husband says, "GO TO BED!"

Then hubby attempts to continue on as if, "the dew is still on the grass!"

But anyway, just keep lockin' that door and put some earplugs in! ha-ha-ha

smooches,

As a new visitor to your blog with my youngest son now 14, when he shouts, "Mom," I find myself answering him with a loud voice, as though I'm just reading in bed.

No my kids don't knock anymore I think they are aware of the sound MaMa's making through the door, they don't even bother. They just laugh when they see me:)

Oh, indeed they do. I like to think of it as my children's Spidey-Sense.

What results from that knock is hilarious in my house. My husband and I freeze...like deer in the headlights or teenageers caught by their parents. Then we whisper...what should we do? It's funny.

YES!!! dammit. That's why we sneak dates in the bathroom.

Vodka Mom March 3, 2009 at 5:07 PM  

wait, did I actually tell you that? dammit.

I only wish we had a door that locked. Thankfully, the door -- a slider -- squeaks when opened, so we get a bit of warning. But only just a bit.

KC Mom March 3, 2009 at 9:59 PM  

There is something to that...I believe it!
Thanks for visiting my blog today...:)

LMAO! We havent had the knocking yet (thank goodness) but it seemed that out little angel would be knocked out with the mouth wide open, drooling and all and as soon as we were naked we'd hear "Mooooommmmyyyyy"! Glad to know it's not just me!

I know exactly where Christie's coming from...

Our kids have no sixth sense when it comes to these things. Then again, my husband and I make out in front of the kids all the time, so I'm sure subconsciously they don't sense that something "big" is happening...it's just Mommy and Daddy kissing again. Bo-ring.

No, they save up their sixth sense for when I'm sleeping--that seems to happen less often than we have sex.
