I'm just gonna come right out and say it

Dads have it easier when it comes to getting a few uninterrupted moments to accomplish those tasks that make us look and smell better to the rest of the general populace.

For some crazy reason, (and I know I’m not alone here… I’ve read my share of other mommy blogs) within a few seconds of me stepping into a shower, my kiddo finds some urgent task that only mommy can do.

This morning I snuck to the bathroom, eased the water on, tiptoed into the hot spray, silently slid the curtain shut and sighed.

My hair was barely wet when I suddenly felt a crash next to me and something hit my leg.

Stifling an urge to shriek (since these kind of unexpected things happen a bit more often with a 28-month old around), I jumped and looked down.





Until I realized that I was indeed showering with five famous guys… one of whom happened to be a law enforcement official.

Confused yet?

This is how my audience looked after they were thoroughly cleaned and dried:

Itty Bit had the brilliant idea that mommy needed company, or at least some automotive entertainment while showering.
Actually… I think it was more of a subtle hint to get out of the shower already and let him have a bath.

MAN, who runs the show around here anyway???

Thanks to Chicka, Lightning McQueen, Snot Rod, Ramone, and Sheriff for their guest appearance

(and if you're a dad who knows what I'm talking about... set me straight and link up your kid-interrupted story!)

Oh, Rachel, I can SO relate! I don't get Lightning McQueen and friends in my shower, but I do get a little girl that likes to play between the shower curtain and the clear liner most times when I am in the shower. Except now she just discovered how much she likes to take a shower, so now I don't get to shower alone much anymore.....I guess that's okay. :)

I loved what you shared on my blog about what your pastor said. I wrote it down...I'll be sharing with others. :)

Happy Sunday!

Oh, Lordy, do I know what you are talking about. My kids at least leave me slightly alone most of the time now (it does get better!), but I usually get the door opened during the shower so all the warm air escapes the bathroom and I step out into the cold, cold air. Just a *teeny bit* frustrating. ;)

There is no privacy with the kids. ;) I can't even go to the bathroom without W.W. trailing after me. When I make jewelry I give him his own set of pony beads to play with otherwise he's into mine.

Although sharing the shower with the characters of cars is too funny!
