motherhood moments

As a family with 2 working parents, part of our "routine" is that we do our chores and errands on Saturday morning to get them over and done for the weekend.  The kids also like to have pancake breakfasts on the weekends.  We dawdled our way through our pancake breakfast this past Saturday and before we knew it, it was 10:30 am.  We hurriedly cleaned up so we could get out the door and through a jam-packed few hours of errands.

I decide that to make things faster (and because this moment to myself would only last for so long), I needed to brush my teeth AND go to the bathroom at the same time.  Ha.  As I sat on the toilet, brushing away, I thought of this post - talking about these motherhood moments where we end up doing things we never imagined we would do before we became moms.

At that exact moment, Aves walked into the bathroom, looked at me on the toilet and without even the slightest hesitation, she came over, sat on my lap and reminded me for the 57th time that morning that she wanted to go to the barbershop to get her hair cut.  We must have been quite the sight.  Motherhood moment, indeed.
