My Mom recently sent me a book titled “Five Minutes Peace”. Its about this elephant momma who is trying to have just five minutes peace… all to herself. Her kids end up following her everywhere … even jumping in the tub with her, jammies and all…and she ends up back in the messy kitchen with a piece of toast and the newspaper. I am very much familiar with this hide and go seek that happens with mothers and small children.
This morning I tried to take a bubble bath. Aravis had been up since 4:20 with molars coming in and neither of us had gone back to sleep. I poured a generous amount of high quality peach scented bubble bath to create a warm and fragrant froth. The sweet aroma and roar of the hot water attracted a crowd. Little sleepy heads popped into the bathroom like crocus flowers at the first hint of spring.
Their glee at the big tub of bubbles was more irresistable than my desire to soak. I quickly stripped them and slipped them into the bath. And for me?… delicious pictures to relish as I sit in my jammies…still.
