Lately, instead of waking up an extra half hour earlier, I have been fitting my shower in after I drop the kiddos off at school. This means that Toad is on the loose. Well, he generally just stands at the shower door and cries until I let him in. Sometimes he even hops in fully clothed.
I hadn’t realized how much of a habit this had become until yesterday when I noticed that he was copying my “shower routine” nearly to the T. Yes, I have a routine. I am a bit OCD on shaving my legs and do it every day. I usually give Toad a bit of shower foam to play with while I am in there. Well, yesterday, I noticed that Toad put the foam on his legs and was trying to shave them using a plastic Winnie the Pooh tub toy. Yes, I am getting the hint that I now need to get up a half hour earlier and get my shower done before the kids wake up. The last thing that I need is to have Toad grow up and thinking that he has to shave his legs to go to kindergarten.
TMI? Who knows. Just thought that you might enjoy this part of mommyhood.
