I love a good romantic comedy. Who doesn’t like a good laugh? So when I heard about the new Sex Tape movie starring Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz, I was totally excited to watch the trailer. It looks hysterical and I can’t wait to see it when it comes to theaters on July 18th. Just to make sure the name of the movie doesn’t confuse you, the movie is about an outrageous adventure that a married couple finds themselves on in an attempt to retrieve a home movie from the cloud. As a parent, I can relate to the themes I saw in the trailer- I mean not the sex tape part (LOL), but finding it hard to find time for the romance between homework helping, dinner, loads of laundry, fixing dinner, and cleaning the house.
Here is the Sex Tape movie trailer in case you want to watch it for yourself! It’s a “Revealing Comedy from the Director of Bad Teacher”.

Reigniting the Romance
As someone who has been married for 11 years and with my partner for eight years before that, I can say that reigniting the romance is an ongoing process. You go through phases- like the baby phase- where you are so distracted and drained that passion isn’t always top of the mind. But intimacy is an important part of the relationship, a bonding that holds you together and reminds each of you that you care for each other in a special way that you don’t share with anyone else. So when one notices a dwindling in the love romance department, one should give it the attention it deserves.
Here is my most recent personal story of an attempt to reignite romance – a time I tried to do something romantic for my husband and it turned into a funny disaster. My husband and I were texting and he threw in a cute little kissy face. OK, I thought, a little fun phone flirting but then my seven year old son popped up and said, “Seriously, a kissy face?” I explained to him that his dad was just trying out the emoticons on his new phone. “I think I will see if my phone has them too,” I said, getting ready to text back something sassy. My son starts grabbing my phone. Let me do it he says. As I explain to him that I want to do my own texting, my son is scrolling through the emoticons and he is trying to select the funny ones he sees. And that my dear friends, is the reason that parents have to work to keep the romance alive!
Did you watch the Sex Tape movie trailer? Did it remind you of a funny story? Do you have a comical reignited love fail to share?
