In Which You All Will Wish You Were Me

This morning while showering I forced to make a difficult decision. Do I:

A) shower while a screaming baby bangs on the shower door because he can't see me clearly through the frosted glass. "Oh My God, I HAVE NOT YET LEARNED OBJECT PERMANENCE, therefore my mother (and more importantly the breasts which are attached to her) has ceased to exist. Woe is me." or,

B) shower with the shower door open, simultaneously flooding the bathroom and freezing my butt off in spite of having the water temperature set to scald.

Guess which one I chose?

In other related news, I washed my bathroom floor today.

My life is so damn exciting that I can hardly stand it sometimes.

I usually just let the kidlet slip around on the floor under my feet in the shower and get soaked.

Ah, a difficult choice. And don't even get me started on Mommy-potty time. ;^) But getting back to showers, I also used to let the wee one sit near my feet and play with bath toys. He seemed to like it, and at least I knew where he was. Made for less-than-scalding showers, though. ;^)

How about the kid that just opens the shower door. And it's not my kid, it's my nephew. Just came in and opened the door and asked if he could have milk.

That's usually the one I always chose too if letting them 'join me' wasn't an option.

And yeah, I guess it's about the only time my bathroom floor would get scrubbed clean! LOL.

not for nothing?
(which is a really HORRIBLE phrase)
but I used to bring Middle IN the shower with me -- he played in the splash, got clean and was able to keep eye contact with, um, me.

oh.
see.
b.e.c.k. said it too.

That's pretty good . . . today I left my 6 week old on the king size bed between the two big pillows (I nknow, against all safety rules) where she was sort of in view from the shower, if I wipe the glass and press my cheek to it. As I am lathering up, I here from my 3 year old "Mommy, I'm holding the baby!" Heart freezes while I look quickly. (he was actually doing a good job, being very gentle!) There are indeed reasons why I shower so infrequently . . .

He used to like coming in the shower, but lately he just screams. And then the standing up by grabbing onto pubic hair put a bit of a damper on it for me too.

Actually that sounds like quite an efficient way to get the bathroom clean :-)

Pity about the chilliness factor though.

And my husband wonders why I think showering alone is such a big deal. lol

Oh, what a great idea for cleaning the bathroom! lol The boys' bathroom gets cleaned each time they get a bath, as they so thoughtfully slosh half the water out of the tub for me ;-)

Dude. When my kids grew out of it and I was technically allowed to enjoy showers again, the *cats* started doing that to me.

That Poundstone comedian has a hilarious bit about her cats standing outside the shower in complete horror that she's inside there getting *wet*. That's my life, now. A stand-up bit.
