was standing in the shower, face in the stream of water, when my
daughter poked her head 'round the curtain. "I can't get my bathing suit
on!" she cried. Silly her for expecting me to manage the bathing suit
while I was bathing? Au contraire, mon frere! Silly me for expecting to complete a shower with a child in the house.
I never knew I'd consider a shower a luxury. And then I had a child.
You've been there, haven't you? You became a parent and presto, change-o, things you took for granted for so long in your child-free days became parental luxuries.
Not sure what I'm talking about? Maybe this will help:
1. Pooping alone.
2. Peeing alone.
3. Drinking a cup of coffee while it's still hot.
4. Eating a chocolate bar that you don't have to share.
Just taking a walk without stopping. Lol! I am very good at going at a toddlers pace for walks, but sometimes I just want to MOVE. Without someone constantly bumping or running in front of the stroller and then STOPPING directly in front of it, causing me to screech to a halt to avoid running over said child.
I would just love some time to think. That's right, sit there and look like I'm doing nothing and think. Without all the interruptions, fights, discontent, and a sudden lack of knowledge about where anything is located.
