You know that you and your kid know each other just a little too well when...
My morning shower is usually pretty perfunctory - I get done what needs doing and then I'm out. Usually in about 3.5 minutes. This morning, hand poised to turn off the tap after my shower, I instead found myself simply standing there for an extra minute or so, luxuriating in the heat. It was a calm and relaxing moment...what I imagine to be a zen-like centering, getting ready for the day.
A little while later, over breakfast, Matthew commented: "so, Mom, I noticed that you took an extra long shower this morning. What's up with that?"
Yikes. Clearly I've gotta become a bit less predictable...maybe tomorrow I'll do something really radical - like taking a full eight minutes in the shower - wonder what the reaction to that would be? Sheesh.
