Spooning Barbecue

Nearly every night, baby girl and I fall asleep spooned together, on our left sides, me behind her, her head resting on my left arm, and me holding her by one or both wrists. Whether we've just had sex or haven't had it in days, we both find that this helps remind us of our respective roles... and it just feels right.

During the night, we nearly always shift positions in our sleep such that we're no longer intertwined like that and I'm no longer holding baby girl's wrist or wrists. When I wake up -- which is always before baby girl -- I'll often pull her to me and resume our sleeping position while we still have time before the alarm goes off.

If I'm feeling like taking baby girl that morning, sometimes I'll reach around with my right hand and put a finger in her mouth for her to suck on. Baby girl is very oral and loves having fingers (and other things) in her mouth, and I love the feeling of her sucking on me like that -- if I'm not already hard, it will make me so in moments.

A few weeks ago, we were having a morning just as I've described above. We were spooned together; I was holding baby girl's left wrist in my left hand, and I had my right thumb in her mouth. She had fallen back asleep in that position and it was quite satisfying for me as I enjoyed the moment, thinking about things that would push me over the edge and decide to wake her up by rolling her onto her back and fucking her.

Baby girl had been asleep a few minutes when she bit down on my thumb, fairly hard, between the first and second knuckle. I made a growling sort of "ouch" noise and told her no and to be gentle. She woke up and stopped biting me.

Later on, when she was fully awake, baby girl explained what had happened:

"I was having a dream and suddenly there was barbecue in it. I thought, 'Yum!' and chomped down on it."

This has led to an inside joke of ours, just four words:

"Barbecue? Yum! Chomp! Ouch!"

Of course, we can't share this joke with anyone else, because for it to make sense, you'd have to understand that we sleep with a finger or thumb in baby girl's mouth, and, and... we just don't want to go there. It's nice to be able to tell the joke here.


  1. That came out of nowhere. :) Welcome back?

  2. Yes it did come out of nowhere. I debated whether to open with a post about being gone for so long but just decided to say "screw it" and start blogging again. The should-I-or-shouldn't-I-blog, I've-been-gone-but-now-I'm-back, I'm-back-for-good-this-time-I-swear stuff gets old when I read it, so I think it would be old to write it, too.

    Hopefully we'll keep it up! And thanks for reading.

  3. I just have to say, wow! It's been awhile. Welcome back!

    love, squirrel
