Ha, you thought I was joking!!! All you facebook friends, don't know me like you thought you did!!! Now, seriously...
I once went to a baby shower for a friend who was having her first baby, we played a game here we each wrote a question a new mother might think in the first few months of motherhood. Someone, (I don't know who,and no, I can't remember what question I wrote) wrote the question, 'Will I ever be able to use the bathroom or shower by myself again?'. I have never really thought much about it. It has always seemed like part of motherhood. Well, when your kids are 9, 7, and 3 you would think one could take a five minute shower alone! I mean really!!! Can they not really wait a whole five minutes to tell me something, or to tell on someone? I love them, but seriously.
Do they think I am having a party in there? I wash off the same as they do!
Do we do this to ourselves? I remember when Jake was a baby, I was afraid to really leave him alone. I know it was only for a few minutes, but I was a new mom. Then as he got a little bigger he didn't like me to close the door and leave him out. So, being a nice mom, I didn't. And now I can't get away from any of them for 5 minutes!!!
So as I have begun pondering this major life question, I have no answers. If you do, please share with he rest of us! And you thought I was really kidding!?!
