In the interest of over sharing, as bloggers do, I’d like to paint you a picture of how much time I get alone. In fact as I type two children are hanging off my elbows.
A moment ago I went to the loo, all I needed was a mere two minutes alone. I had hardly begun to warm the seat when I was joined by three children and the dog. All wanting something from me, or had brought me something to open or do for them. Business concluded I left the toilet three children & dog in tow, and one bottle of cordial, two sippy cups, two dvds and a bag of cookies under my arms. I swear these kids have absolutely no boundaries. I now know why my mother would call out from the loo when she was in there; “I’m in here!” if she heard the slightest bump in the house (or the house next door even), a kind of veiled ‘piss off kid’ I’m sure.
One day I will miss all this right?
