Longing For a Master Suite With Bath

One morning I dragged myself out of bed, grabbed my pile of clothes and headed for the shower.

Halfway there I was waylaid by a child wanting a drink.

Because I love them, and because I didn’t want them banging on the door while I was in the shower, I set my clothes down and poured some juice.

Halfway through the shower, about the time I was rinsing the shampoo, I remembered that I left my clothes in the other room.

After I toweled off I cracked open the door and said, “Would one of you please bring me my clothes?”

“Where are they Mommy?’

That was the second problem.  I couldn’t remember exactly where I had stashed my roll of clothes.

My 2 yo went to the dirty laundry basket, pulled out one piece of clothes and dragged it to the bathroom door.

She sweetly said, “Here ya go, Mommy.”

“Thanks dear I really do appreciate it, but one dirty bra is not going to help.”

My other 2 kids laughed themselves silly while I swathed myself in towels.

The moral of this story is: Put your clothes in the bathroom the night before.
