Insanity of Motherhood

Motherhood, marriage, and midlife.

Question of the Day – Am I Sexy?


New blogging year and new idea for my blog.

It is called, Question of the Day.  Basically, I will ask a question and write an answer for it.  Simple enough, right?

Today’s question of the day is,  ‘Am I Sexy?’

Being sexy is easy for some people.  The wake up with sexy hair, put on sexy clothes and walk in sexy ways.  When they enter a room people say thing like, “Wow, they are hot.”  This is not me.  Or what I should say is, it has not been me lately.

Last weekend my girlfriend and I went out shopping.  I needed candy for the boys’ Easter baskets and wanted some new makeup.

My friend suggested we do a little clothes shopping.  To be specific, she wanted to go to Victoria’s Secret.

“Why do you want to go there?” – Me

“I want to pick up a few cute things to wear.” – Hattie (fake name)

It had been years, many years, since I stepped in a Victoria’s Secret store.  Frankly, I was not interested.

As I walked into the store, I felt uncomfortable.  It was as if I did not belong.  All the bra displays showed nothing similar to the practical bra I was wearing.  And the underwear (panties as Victoria calls them) were nowhere near as comfortable looking, as mine.

My girlfriend wanted some new things.  She suggested I have a look.  I glanced down at the round table filled with hundreds of lace items.

“These are my favorite.  Look at all the great colors.  They are so comfortable, especially the thongs.” – Hattie

“Comfortable and thongs are two words that do not go together.” – Me

“Look at this pair.  They are so flattering.” – Hattie

I glanced at my friend’s size 4 figure.

“Of course they are flattering…on you.  You do not have a squishy belly.  If I wore a pair of those, my gut and butt would hang out.” – Me

“Come on.  Live a little.  Your husband would love these.” – Hattie

It has been a while I have worn anything so sheer, tiny and lacy.  I looked down at the table of undergarments.  I asked myself, ‘Am I sexy enough to wear something like that?’

I took a deep breath and grabbed a lacy item.

Turns out I can sexy and a mom.  Two words that don’t always go together.

  1. A lucky man I am to have you!

  2. ha,ha…I like this one a lot. Good question…Plus, I like that you gave your friend the name “hattie”, which doesn’t inspire visions of a size four supermodel in me…lol!

    Feeling a little passive-aggressive today, are we?…
