Just In Time For Valentine’s Day; Libido Killer!
What is arguably one of the most romantic days of the year is fast approaching, and couples all over the globe have started to make their plans for Valentine's Day. But there's at least one group of folks who, at the mere mention of romance or the implication of a night of passion, laugh hysterically because of how far from their reality that is: parents.
Take it from someone who was married for over a decade with 4 small kids; the longer you're together and the more kids you have, the harder it is to keep the romance alive!
I think it's because human beings are creatures of habit, and we become so comfortable with each other--perhaps too comfortable! And that comfort, added to that feeling you get with parenthood of just having to survive the day, can put the breaks on the speeding car that used to be your love life!
The Holderness Family, who have offered up numerous song parodies about their lives have truly nailed this one. With tremendous accuracy, their Michael Jackson "Thriller " parody "Libido Killer" totally captures all the romance, or lack there of, of being married and parents.
I think a lot of people are going to see themselves represented in this one. So enjoy!
So, if you're not planning to partake in anything hot and steamy this Valentine's Day (outside of what's possibly waiting for you in that next diaper change) at least you can revel in a hearty chuckle of solidarity with parents everywhere!
