Have you ever tried hiding from a child just so you could get something done?
Last week I tried to get a few minutes to myself while Jeffrey was there to help out, and it was just pretty hard to do.
I would get the kids busy doing something and then sneak away for a shower and right after I turned on the water a little knock would come on the door and a soft "Amy?" could be heard.
I have come to the conclusion that all children are born with a "My parent needs quiet time, I must find them and interrupt" radar.
It is always at the most akward times, too. For example every time I got into or out of the shower I was interupted with a soft knock, crying and "Amy, Hunter just...." or "Amy, Hannah just...." and the funniest part about it is they were always upset because the one wouldn't play with the other.
Going along with that, I was impressed with my friend Emily today. How did she know I was going to talk about ME time today? It just goes to show, great minds think alike!
I declare today to be a pampering day! Even if you have to lock yourself in the bathroom for five minutes to enjoy a lemonaid in silence, do it! Ignore the knocks and the crying just for 5 minutes. Take headphones if you have to.
I started early yesterday. I put the little one down for a nap, and went into the bathroom and locked the door. I then went natural.
My hair that is.
I colored it back to the origonal dark brown that I love.
Last year I thought I would try highlights for the first time, and while they were fun for the first little while, I quickly grew tired of them. Oh how nice it is to be back to my natural hair color!
On a completely side note, I am looking out my bedroom window and I am seeing a dream of summer. I am hearing birds, and against the deep blue and white sky I see dark green leafs with red! My cherry tree looks like a perfect picture! I don't like the taste but I sure love how it looks!
So my dear friends, make today a day of memories, summer time fun, and pamper yourself just a little. Go under that darn radar.
