I showered today! And why is that a monumentous occasion? Because I wanted to take a shower and I did! I didn’t have to ask anyone to cover for me, or wait until 9PM! I even shaved! That’s a lot of exclamations! But you get the point, this is exciting stuff.
As a mom, you often feel like your basic human rights have been taken away. You no longer eat, sleep or shower on your own schedule. So today, a tiny piece of freedom has been handed back to me. Something I used to take for granted. The option to shower when I please, as long as I can keep the kid entertained for at least 15 minutes. It was glorious.
It’s a big day we’ve slowly been working up to. Today was the first time I didn’t get out three times to check on him while dripping water all over the floor. Next time I’m going to get crazy and try to shave AND wash my hair! Whoah!
Things are looking up over here. This mom-life thing does get better. You do get your normal life back, piece by tiny piece. And I’ve never appreciated those tiny pieces so much!
P.S. – I contemplated titling this “the golden shower moment” but probably don’t need that kind of traffic 😂
