Welcome to My Shower

The kids didn't have school today because of Teacher Development Day. So, we lazed around all morning. The kids were all getting along and playing so nicely letting me surf the net. Finally around 11:30 I decided it might be a good idea to get in the shower. Welcome to the first 3 minutes of my shower:
I get in and barely get wet when S walks in.
"Mom, someone is on your phone but I don't know who."
Me: "Go ask"
20 sec. later, nothing.
Me: "S, who was it."
S: "I don't know, but Oakley is here, can I play?"
Me: "Maybe in a little bit."
S: "Okay"
2 sec. later
M: "Mom Kiley's on the phone she wants to know if me and J can play."
Me: "Where"
M: "Umm, I don't know let me go see. Nevermind it's not Kiley it is Ebanie. They want to come over here."
Me: "What?"
M: "I don't know."
Me:"Tell her you'll call her back."
10 sec. later
J: "Mom?"
Me: "Whhhhaaaat?"
J: "Ummm, uhhh I love you."
Me: "I love you too"
5 sec. later
J: "Mom?"
Me: "WHAT?"
J: "Look"
Me: "I can't."
J: " I see your leg"
Me: "Go out and pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeease let me shower."

Wow, it seems like the second I need to do something everyone needs me for something much more important.

You need to install a dead-bolt on your bathroom door. My 6 year old poked her head into my shower today to show me how many crackers were left in the box....PRIVACY PLEASE!!!

Its true, no one needs you unless your in the bathroom. Then all bets are off!

How funny!! Luckily my hubby is home most of the time, so I can take showers in peace.

I think they wait around till you are on the phone or in the shower. They have this little list bouncing around in their heads waiting until you think you might get a moment alone.

Wanna know how I know this? I did it to my mom.
