I have a little secret – mommies can be naughty too. Not much of a secret to you but you'd be surprised how many people are shocked to hear it. Although we spend much of our time shuttling our kids back and forth and making super responsible decisions there is still a woman inside of every mom. Our husbands (hopefully) are privy to our naughty side and we might confide in our best friend but what brings out the naughty is as unique as the woman. After all, we haven't been mothers forever and we used to be highly charged sexual singles, the thought of a long-term relationship, dirty diapers, and carpooling never even registering. But now as we live the life of a parent our naughtiness has to go a bit underground.
So, I'm going out on a limb and assuming I am not alone here. I have a confession, a secret crush (well, not so secret now). Just to clarify, I am NOT looking to find a new man. This is not about acting on your crush but about crushing on someone totally, unrealistically out of your reach. My secret? I lurve Henry Cavill who plays Charles Brandon, The Duke of Suffolk, on The Tudors. Can you blame me?
My husband and I have been addicted to our nightly viewing of this soft porn series. We've seen season 1 and are now part way through season 2 on DVD. Although we all know how it ends and most of what happens in between who knew that the 1500's in King Henry VIII's court could be so hot!
Well I decided to check out the real Charles Brandon to see if he was as easy on the eyes as the handsome Henry Cavill. Needless to say I think I'll be sticking with my modern day crush. Standards in the 1500s were, well, a bit, um, different. Decide for yourself:
