Action Time....


Dear Parental Units (dad, carol, gladys...)-- do not read this if you do not want to be not want to read some "personal" stuff about your daughter... or just can't handle the truth. Oh and if you do read it-- don't ever discuss the story with me... too uncomfortable!!
Dear Kids (CJ, this means YOU)- as your mother, I am telling you-- DO NOT READ THIS POST... you are not allowed until you are at least 18!! FINAL-- don't even ask!! And I will be able to tell if you do read it!! There are some things that moms just don't want to share with their kids (oh, but of course I don't mind sharing with tons of strangers)!!

I guess that is the problem with a blog that everyone I know reads... I can't always share EVERYTHING that I'd like to, without fear of who will read it.... Oh well, I got the "disclaimer" out of the way....

Be sure to check out Supahmommy and Mommybrain to read more!!

This is a pretty easy subject for me..... not to sound like a wild woman or anything, but Joe and I have a VERY "healthy" time at Inspiration Point.... we visit often; are never bored with it; and are always thinking up new adventures!! One such visit, that got interrupted by one of the kids.....

Let me preface the story with this-- (Dad/Carol, if you've gotten this far; then I apologize for the next couple of lines...) When I was a little girl, I remember that somehow I found out that my dad & stepmother would take a shower together...and somehow I found out that they did that so they could "conserve water"..... and let me tell you, I did believe that... I believed that for a long time... up until I was older and realized that probably wasn't true--- but I-DO-NOT-WANT- TO- GO- THERE... T.M.I.

Ok, so as a mother of 4 children who keep me busy ALOT.. sometimes we have to be creative and spontaneous.... sometimes has to be early morning or late at night when kids are sleeping... know what I mean!!

So, early one morning when the kids were still sleeping (and I know this because I usually ALWAYS have to wake them up); we decided that since we both had to get ready for work, then we would just "conserve water".... Well, i'm not sure how much "conserving" we did because we were in there quite a while.... and when it got to be just about "the moment" I hear a little voice say "mommy, are you in there..... MOOOOMMMMYYY?" (we have glass shower doors, that were fogged up, so you couldn't really see in--- thank goodness)

Everything was put to a crashing stop and this was our conversation (mind you-- I had pushed Joe to the very corner of our shower so no chance she would see him):

Me: yes, angie- I am taking a shower before work

her: where's daddy?

Me: he's probably somewhere around the house, just go back to bed for 3 more minutes (seriously- I said 3 more minutes-- that's really all we needed) :-)

her: but I need Daddy...

Me: Go back to bed-- NOW.. I will tell daddy to come in when I see him (wink-wink)

her: can you wipe the door so I can see in?

Me: NO-- go back to bed

her: Pleeaassee...? I want to see your face...

me: NO-- Ok, Angie-- just go lay in my bed and I will be out in T-H-R-E-E minutes!!!

That did get her out of there... but not before she basically "ruined the moment".... needless to say, I had to get out of the shower, get her out of my bed and into her room so that Joe could also get out of the shower.... and then we went about our day!!!

Don't feel too bad for us, we just met back at home later for "lunch" (hee-hee)

hahaha...too funny! Though I bet at the time you were pretty 'frustrated' lol.

See that's why we don't shower together unless my boy is in bed and the door is locked...your daughter will become wise to 8 year old would catch on in an instant!

We have been trying to teach our 9 year old and our 11 year old that when our door is closed that they have to knock first. I am sure one day they will figure it out, but for now they just think that Mommy and Daddy are watching tv!

That is too funny!
John and I almost always shower together. I don't think the little kids think anything of it, it's the norm for them...the older kids, um, who knows what they think. lol
