Rub a Dub Dub. Escape to the tub…

There are days when I just want to quit being the mother and run away.

Yeah, yesterday was a day like that. 

Yesterday was a day where I tried really hard but there was no pleasing anyone.

Okay, I was on the good list with one of my three kids, but the other two? I would have liked to, oh, I don't know, sell them or something.

They whined, they bugged each other, they bickered and they made impossible demands. They simply annoyed the heck out of me and the rest of the family all day long.

When I tried to retreat to my office to escape from them, for a few minutes of regrouping, they followed me.

It seemed that there was no avoiding my kid's fighting and nonsense yesterday.

So, about lunch time, I went and had a very long shower.

My kids are old enough now that they really, really, REALLY don't want to see me naked. So, I got a few minutes reprieve.

And then after dinner when my kids started driving me crazy all over again? I went upstairs and had a nice long hot bath.

Now, I'm wrinkly but I'm sane.

The moral of this story?

Thank goodness for large hot water tanks.

Sigh.

  1. Oh, I can relate. We spent spring break trapped in a one bedroom apartment, in a brand new city, with my parents. There wasn’t enough wine in Seattle to dull a week like that.
    I always thought that one day someone would find my kids standing on the curb with a sign that said “Kids. Free”
    I mean, not really….
    (well, maybe).

  2. That taking a shower so the kids won’t bother you? When does that start? My son, and all three dogs, follow me into the bathroom with my son often asking, “what are you doing?” So escaping to the bathroom doesn’t really work for me yet.

  4. Oh Yes, I can relate as I have these moments a lot some weeks. Sometimes I have to lock myself in the toilet for 10 minutes to get some quite time (shhh, don’t tell them)

  5. What I love is when they used to tag team me–be annoying one at a time but in succession for hours on end. It was a really efficient strategy on their part because it freed up so much time.
    I’m a hider-outer-in-the-bathtubber too and we have an ENORMOUS hot water tank for that very reason.
