Yesterday I woke up with a stuffy nose and was sneezing. My head felt stuffy for most of the day. Last night after Paige had been in bed for a little bit, I decided to take a shower to see if the steam would help clear my sinuses. I snuck into our room (our place is small and Paige shares a room with us) to get a clean pair of underwear for after my shower, and it turned out she wasn't asleep. She rolled over and said, "Is it time to get up?"
Momma: "No, it's not time to get up - I'm going to take a shower."
Paige: "Can I take a shower too?"
Momma, "No, it's too late. I'm getting some clean underwear so I can take a shower to make my nose feel better."
At this point I was leaning over her bed. She sat up and put both of her hands on either side of my face and looked at my nose. Then she told me, "Momma, when my nose is achoooo (little pretend sneeze here) I will get a Pull-Up and take a shower to make my nose feel better." She then allowed me to put her back to bed.
Fast forward to this morning, when she woke up at 5:30. I was taking her into the bathroom to use the potty and she asked to take a shower to make her nose feel better. So I told her ok. Then she wanted me to join her. So I did. Then she wanted us both to sit in the tub under the shower spray. So we did. I splashed her a little, and she splashed me.
"Momma," she said, "This is so much fun."
These are the moments that make a crazy Momma smile.
