I Can Read A Book,Make A Sandwich and Sew A Bear.
My kids take a shower or bath at least
They are familiar with the concept.
However, when it comes to MY shower/bath time, I am always amazed at what exactly they think I am doing in there.
It never fails, I get a knock on the door.
"I can't hear you! Come in here and tell me!" By this time, I'm irritated and certain this must be the emergency with which I told them was the only reason they could interrupt my
Enter mumbler: "Can you read me my book?"
"Ummm.....Not right now? I have shampoo on my hair!"
OR: "I'm hungry, can I have a sandwich?"
"Yes, only if you want your bread extremely soggy."
OR: "Princess Bear has a hole in her!! Can you fix it?"
"I'm afraid of what I would poke if I had a needle in here."
My favorite actually occurred about 8 years ago, when Jayce was about 3 years old. He was a very imaginative child and LOVED Woody and Buzz.
For some reason, we had his car seat in the living room.
I went to take my shower, putting on Toy Story for about the 3rd time that day.
This was "Pre-JosieJarrettJeven days" so my shower time was a lot less interrupted. However, I'm about 5 min. into my shower when I hear all this banging around.
"Thump. Thump. Thumpthumpthump"
"What in the world??"
Pretty soon, I hear Jayce "Mom?"
"Yes, dear child?" Again, it was pre-JosieJarrettJeven days so I had waaayyy more patience back then.
I peek around the curtain to find Jayce with his car seat strapped to his back.
"I was in my rocket ship, getting ready for blast off. I buckled myself in but now I can't undo it!"
Did I rush right out of the shower and help the poor boy?
Of course not!! I still had 5 minutes left of my shower!! And, half of my sandwich left.
