Before my morning coffee....

I sneaked (snuck? whatever) to the shower, while Adam watched "Little Einsteins," in my bed (where he slept for the majority of the night!).

Matthew was not awake. I had ten minutes to shower.

I happily skipped (ok maybe not) into the bathroom and started my shower.

Scalding hot water was soothing my sleepiness, when all of the sudden I hear....


"MOM!!!!!!! MOMMMMMMM!!!! MOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!"


Me, sticking my head out of the bathroom, into the VERY cold air: "Adam get in here right now! If you wake up Matthew, you are in big trouble mister!"

Adam: "Moooooooommmmmmmmmmm my elboooowwww.... I neeeeeed a bandaaaaaid!!!"

Me: "There's no blood. No bandaid."

Adam, stops crying, and sulks away.

Ok, back to showering bliss... for a whole five seconds.....

Adam: "MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!"

Me: "Adam Frederick, get your butt in here now!"

Adam: "I can't! I am STUCCCCK!!!"

I stumble out of my shower, grab one of the kids' hoodie towels (hey, it was the closest), throw on my monkey towel, and run to the cries.

Me: "You better be bleeding this time, because your yelling woke up Matthew; now he's crying. Are you bleeding? Where's the blood? WHERE are you????"

Adam: "Mommy! I am stuck up herrrrreeeeee!!!!!"

Up where???

Somehow he climbed up Andy's armroir (sp?) and was STUCK- very STUCK, at about 6 feet off the ground. sigh.

I get him down, one handed, because I am holding my monkey in place, and proceed back to the shower. Matthew was screaming. I was sulking. Adam was still crying.

I turned off the shower. I'll try again later.

Ooooh no. That is VERY bad! I keep thinking to myself, "Someday they'll be big, someday they'll be big." And then I kiss those soft cheeks and think, "The Sharpie can be painted over."

What? You think you're allowed to shower in peace? What do you think you are? Single with no kids?????
And what is an armoir?(or whatever it was)..........
