Have you ever had one of those days?
I sent Linus and Josie to bathroom to wash their hands. I used that time to quickly pick up the lunch dishes. I may have been hypnotized by the sound of Team Umi Zoomi, but I can assure you they were definitely not in there for more than 5 minutes.
Josie walked into the living room, drenched from head to toe, Linus sauntered in behind her, naked for the third time today.
I had a stern talking to with them and started getting Josie changed.
Linus looked at me, smiled, and said, “The water is still on.”
The waterfall sound as I approached the bathroom was not comforting, to say the least.
First, I noticed the overflowing sink. Then, I realized I was standing in about a 1/2 inch of water that filled the entire bathroom.
I shut off the faucet and noticed my foundation bottle, now empty, wedged in the drain. I managed to pull it out, but the water was still not going down. Reaching my finger further down the drain I found multiple pieces of soap wrapped in tissues.
It took a long stick and the plunger, but the sink finally drains again.
As I bent down to sop up the water that was everywhere, I noticed an entire brand spanking new tube of toothpaste smeared all over the floor. That minty fresh smell did smack me in the nostrils when I entered the bathroom, but, at the time, I was a bit distracted by our new swimming pool.
Then, I found a plethora of tampon wrappers and applicators, but what did they do with the tampons?
That’s it, I think it is time for a “mommy time out.”
I’m going to put myself in the corner (a quiet corner) for 5 minutes. I’ll reflect on the happy chaos that fills our home while I eat one or two (or 10) peanut butter cups! Then, I’ll be ready to assume the role of “Super Mom” again.
On your way home, please pick up tampons…and wine.
