OCD Shower

So as you know our little Toad has a bunch of "isums" and well, I made a HUGE mistake the other day as a parent of a child with "isums" or OCD or whatever you want to call it.

It was Saturday and Rob and I were getting ready to head out for the night, we were in a rush (as I always am) and I had left very little time for a shower. I put Lovely in her bouncy chair outside the washroom and jumped in, oh here we go...
Mommy where are you?
oh Mom are you in the shower? Can I have a shower too?

HMMMM.. A) this could be a great way to keep him busy for the next 10 mins as I get ready? B) this could be WAY more work then I have time for? C) He hates showers what the heck?

Sure I said.. This boy will take about 15mins to 20 mins to get out of his clothes before his bath each night but this day he was done and waiting to get in with in seconds.. we have a tiny stall shower in our en suite so I was going to get out and let him shower for a few minutes.. I did that and when he was done I turned off the water but still needed some time so I said "buddy can you do me a fave?"
Yeah what  Mommy?
"Can you squeegee off the door?"

YES 25 minutes later, a glass of water and me beggin him to get out later! This kid was working so hard he had to ask me for a glass of water.. He was so obsessed with getting every last drop of water off that door.
That kid cracks me up! He and I are in for a LONG ride...

  1. Aww that was cute. I know it is easy for me to say that and sometimes you must be ready to pull your hair out, but, I got a chuckle out of the story.
