I am NOT very pleased with the person who taught my youngest to jimmy locked doors.
I am particularly perturbed at that person when I’m in the shower and I never hear the door open – just the whoosh of my pink-on-pink shower curtain before the icy breeze grabs at my exposed body parts (for some reason, I can never remember to turn on the heating lamps).
“Whatcha doin’, Mommy? Can you make me some more chocolate milk?” My three year old’s big blue eyes blink as if she thinks I really am doing nothing.
“I will do it as soon as I get out of the shower, OK Fluffy-Butt?”
She shuffles out, and, as always, leaves the door ajar. I tip-toe out and slam it shut and scurry back under the massaging water…aaahhhhh…(crap…forgot to turn the heating lamp on AGAIN…)
Whoosh - another freezing blast as the curtains flies open, “Never mind, Mommy,” she bounces up and down on her toes with excitement, so that her blond ringlets bop like a poodle with long hair, “I’ll just do it myself.”
OK, pretty much nothing makes me jump out of the shower and into a towel faster than those words. All visions of washing my tension away disappear instantly, replaced by visions of my family-size bottle of Hershey’s chocolate dripping off my table and a gallon of milk like an ocean on my floor. Complete with ten footprints tracking it through my house, because I know no one except for me will bother to clean it up! (All in a day’s work. That’s why we moms get paid the “big bucks”, right?)
So, for this Mother’s Day, I still want my pampering, my gifts, my champagne and my trip to the Saratoga Racino. But most of all, I would LOVE a nice, long, hot shower.
