Open Letter Friday - Dear Kids

A blogger I follow started this idea a few weeks back, and today, when I was having my shower interrupted for the umpteenth time, I thought I'd play along with her. Feel free to play along too. I bet you will feel better when you get it off your chest. And please link me up so I don't miss your post!

So here is my first open letter....

Dear precious, beautiful children of mine,
     I love you more than life itself and would do absolutely anything humanly possible for you, which is evident by the sports practices and games we sit through, movies we watch with you, annoying friends of yours that we put up with, minivan I drive, etc, etc. etc. I love you so so much! Remember that. Now, here's the dealio, unless you are experiencing a life threatening emergency (ie. fire or blood), I don't need you to visit me every time I am in the shower. Think "absence makes the heart grow fonder" and give me that 10 minutes a day every other day. Seriously, guys, what do you expect me to do when I am mid-rinse and you come in yelling that your brother is a meanie? And is it really necessary to tell me, again while I am IN the shower, that you are hungry? I am not Kramer and I'm not hiding all the good food in the shower. Go find something....or better yet, go do what I told you to do before I jumped in and I promise you won't starve before I get out. Guys, work with me here...surely it is not too much to ask to have a nice peaceful shower in the morning (or afternoon, depending on the day!).
Hugs and kisses,


  1. I so feel your pain! I've started taking my showers when two of my three are at school. Saturdays and Sundays on the other hand I find locking the door works very well.

  2. Haha. LOVE it. I'm glad to know we all go through similar things as moms! :)))

  3. You always make me laugh when I read your blog.. SJ thinks it is hilarious now.. give her a few years and she will be writing her own letter.. the day will come soon when you only have the wondermutt pawing on the door... haha.. love you , Mom


I would love to hear your thoughts!!
