This mum's hilarious account of attempting shower sex after having kids is too relatable.

“Parenthood…constantly being touched and climbed on by my toddler and non stop nursing from my baby…When is there time for us?”

Nicole Ramsay, a mother of two from Arizona, shared an honest post about the realities of trying to find some “sexy time” with her husband that has since gone viral.

It’s been shared over 3,000 times, possibly because it’s one of the most relatable posts on the realities of motherhood we’ve ever seen.

Sex after kids? It DOES NOT look like this.

In the post - which Nicole shared on her own page and the Breastfeeding Mama Talk Facebook page - she began by musing that she couldn't remember "the last time we actually had sex when the kids were up".

"We (I) fed the family, washed the kids, brushed their teeth, put jammies on them and tucked the kiddos in bed early," she wrote.

"I ran to the bedroom...and turned on the romantic music. Found the lighter from my 2 year old's birthday party and got the dust covered candles lit. I attempted to be sexy ignoring my postpartum naked body society frowns upon. I know he loves every inch of me."

Nicole and her husband then tried to get intimate in the shower, knowing they had to move quickly because "my kids took most of the hot water".

Did you know we have a whole podcast filled with relatable parenting moments? Listen to the latest episode of This Glorious Mess:

"Kissing passionately in our shower we seem to hear phantom cries of our children about every 30 seconds. Trying to catch our footing we hear a loud "SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!" I start cursing the toy dolphin under my breath," she wrote.

"As we are desperate to keep the mood going we realise the alphabet toys below us...We are surrounded. Finally we both crack up and the sexual mood disappears."

She snapped an image of the toys lying at their feet, and shared her story in solidarity to other exhausted parents who were just "attempting to get some together time".

"You are not the only ones struggling to find adult time together...Laugh at life or you won't make it!"
