WIBU to do this to my DH? <lighthearted>

We have a baby (months old) and I am pretty close to exhausted and would love nothing more than a good night's undisturbed sleep.

DH, on the other hand, is overly amorous and being a bit pesky with it (waking me up etc.)

Today I received a bit of very good news, and DH told me very seriously that his celebration present to me will be that "I can do whatever I want to him tonight."

WIBU to lure him onto the living room couch, tie him up, then bring him a pillow and a blanket, and get a good night's sleep to myself on our double bed?

(Disclaimer: I do love him and wouldn't actually do this probably , but its the first longing thought that popped into mind when he said what his 'gift' was!)

Shave his eyebrow off. Just one.

Then every time he gets inappropriately pointy you can say "sorry, your eyebrow is really putting me off".

YANBU. I'm assuming this is your first baby. It took DH until well into my DC2 pgy (third pgy) to work out how closely tied my libido always is to my hormone cycle and exhaustion levels.

Aww, he doesn't 'demand', honest. I'm feeling a bit guilty I may have put him in a bad light here. He is very respectful of my boundaries when I lay them down, but I just haven't done with this particular issue yet, as it hasn't got to that level of bothersome.

I have no doubt he would back off if I asked him to. I just haven't got to that degree of irked yet. I'm really just having a little light-hearted gripe, while kicking back (he has baby atm).

I don't know, the kind of man who demands sex from a new mother and repeatedly wakes her up for it probably thinks this'd be a right old treat.

Lol! With any luck you'll be in such a good and happy mood you can have a bit of fun and then get a good nights sleep while he sees to the baby.

Solari Fri 28-Jun-13 18:35:15

Oh, confused was exactly my inner expression when he said it! But I think in his somewhat-overly-lusty-atm, beer-fogged mind, I'm betting he thought he'd love it if I gave him that free pass, so he gave it to me, thinking not quite clearly that I'd feel the same!

nbee84 Fri 28-Jun-13 18:32:43

That sounds a bit wrong - meant as in your present should be that he can do whatever you want him to do to you

nbee84 Fri 28-Jun-13 18:30:52

Your present is that you can do whatever you want to him. Shouldn't it be the other way round? confused

Solari Fri 28-Jun-13 18:30:21

Too much detail about good news might out me unfortunately (quite specific), but we are finally seeing some hard work pay off. smile

In all seriousness, I probably should do something nice for him, but this is more fun!

Solari Fri 28-Jun-13 18:27:08

Well I'm now I'm also going to have to think up an excuse for why I'm giggling like a madwoman at the computer before he wants to come have a look at what's so funny... maybe I should let him. <feeling mischievous!> grin

Congrats on your good news smile Are you sharing??

I'd gag him then lock him in the spare room with the baby & bottles of milk to last until at least mid day tomorrow - if I was feeling generous I'd leave him something to eat and a bucket grin

Shellywelly1973 Fri 28-Jun-13 18:23:56

Definitely do it!!

Kafri Fri 28-Jun-13 18:19:39

lead him on for the evening and then when you crawl into bed, tell him exactly what you want to do to him - absolutely nothing!!! then turn over and get a good night's kip! grin

X-posts.

You are much, much nicer than me smile

Marcheline Fri 28-Jun-13 18:14:06

StuntGirl agreed.

OP, He needs to wind it in. You have just had a baby. You need sleep. He can cope without sex.

Book into a hotel by yourself, and leave him to look after the baby for a night.

And congrats on your good news!

picnicbasketcase He would never forgive me!

StuntGirl I would do if it were all the time, but fortunately he's not always like this, just episodes of random "over-interestedness". He's very kind and considerate in daily life, and helps out as much as he can despite working long, hard hours, so I don't mind putting myself out a bit. If it got too much, for too long, I would talk to him about it, and am sure he would take note. However, we've not gone beyond petty irritation yet . smile

StuntGirl Fri 28-Jun-13 18:00:24

I know its lighthearted an' all, buuuuuuut... have you asked him to stop? Waking a new mother who is exhausted just so he can have sex is pretty fucking shitty.

Glittertwins Fri 28-Jun-13 17:58:23

DH here is looking worried about what I am reading grin. Do it!

picnicbasketcase Fri 28-Jun-13 17:53:00

Tie his hands behind his back and put makeup on him

phantomhairpuller Fri 28-Jun-13 17:51:44

Absolutely definitely DO IT grin

Buzzardbird Fri 28-Jun-13 17:24:03

Oh, you can get so much more out of this if you interpret his word carefully...how about turning him into the sole childminder for the evening and you go off and have a relaxing evening in a hotel? <wishful thinking>

ha ha ha , sounds exactly the sort of thing I would have wanted to do at that stage. have a nice evening wink

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Fri 28-Jun-13 17:21:30

Don't tie him up, he won't be able to get up all through the night to see to the baby! Unless of course it's with a bungee cord, that might work?

AllIWant85 Fri 28-Jun-13 17:20:55

Oh and YANBU! smile

AllIWant85 Fri 28-Jun-13 17:20:31

Do it! grin
