No matter how much a Mommy loves her children, sometimes she needs time away.
And I love, love, love my girls, but even I need a moment to breathe by myself.
In my case, it's my beloved shower.
My husband watches both the girls and I get five minutes of hot, steamy goodiness all to myself.
Some of the time.
Some of the time I get to stand in the shower and shave my legs in peace. I can wash and condition my hair and if I'm lucky, I can stand there and do absolutely nothing.
Of course the other half of the time I am bombarded with requests to wash toy dinosaurs, hold hands through the shower curtain or hounded about when I will get out so I can feed the crying baby.
And my beloved, blissful moment doesn't exist.
Of course, I love my family and most of the time, happily grant all their requests but when I get those rare moments where no one enters the bathroom while I'm in there, it's a small piece of heaven. I moment where I can close my eyes and ignore everyone.
But when that does happen I get bored after five minutes of steamy yumminess and I usually rush through my shower and get out just so I can spend as much time with them as possible.
Because like I said, I love them.
The life of a Mom, ain't it grand?
