Ever Felt Like an Orangutan Chasing After Your Kid? Watch This Hilarious Video! by Gail Harris

Face it: Motherhood isn’t always sexy. Well, it can be. But, right now, I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about the vomit, piss and doo-doo, runny noses, running after your child as he defiantly sticks his tongue out at you and jumps in the mud. Like an animal. Take heart, Mom. He'll soon become a teenager, and all this will seem like a piece of cake. This is what you’ve signed up for. But just watch this video – orangutan kiddos are defiant, too. As are other species. And, as always, Mom is there to respond accordingly.

My point: Make sure you’re feeling sexy, too. How? That’s not for me to tell you, but for you to find out. I will say that there is nothing sexier than a mama who knows herself. Her likes and dislikes. Who is brave, vulnerable, who struts her stuff confident in her imperfections. Having a partner doesn’t even enter into the equation.

Anyway, those are my criteria. But what are yours? Who are you as your sexy self? If you aren’t sure – and especially if you think you are – right now, look at yourself in the mirror and find the sexy you. Take your time. You’ll know when you’ve found her. Ping. Then leave a comment, and inspire other moms. OK, go! Can’t wait to check in.

This video is longer than 30 seconds, but we think it's worth it.

This video makes me LOL! I so empathize with that mama orangutan! Haven't we all been there, Gail Harris ?! For me, sexy is often all about the eyes, or about the hair. Thanks for the reminder!!

This video is hysterical! So many of us can relate LOL! For me, sexy is how I feel when I slip into my favorite dress and shoes going on date night with my husband..
Gail Harris

My most memorable worse mommy moment was when my daughter was4 and son was 2 mos. We were in Target one morning and my daughter was sitting in the cargo part of the cart when she suddenly leaned over the side and threw up. Being the type to clean up after myself, I was down on the floor with a package of wipes cleaning it up when she threw up again, only this time she was leaning over the edge of the cart, directly above me watching me clean it up. A Target worker-person saw it and came to my aid. It was a long ride home...
Sexy? Pajamas and unmentionables have to be pretty and match!

Stacey Roberts Now that's a sexy story. I think it would take a lot of will to let it go. Thanks for sharing.
