Our kids really do provide us with so much joy and laughter. There is never a dull moment at our house…and rarely ever a quiet one either. Jaxon, who is three and a half, is such an outgoing, active, funny, wonderful kid. We had a very “interesting” exchange this morning, that I thought was worth capturing in writing.
I was washing my face and he was in the bathroon with me. Nothing unusual about that.
As I had my face all lathered up with soap, Jaxon said, “Mommy, I need your help.”
“Hold on a second, sweetie,” I replied. With my eyes tightly shut to avoid the sting of getting soap in them I felt around the basin of the sink for my washcloth — but I couldn’t find it.
Suddenly a sweet little hand offered it up to me. I took it and finished drying my face with it.
“Now,” I said afterwards, “What was it you needed my help with?”
“Oh, nothing now, Mommy. I just used your washcloth to wipe my pee-pee off the toilet seat.”
I guess it’s true, in the job description for moms — you’ve gotta wear some pee, throw-up and a little bit of everything else to get the job done. I just shook my head and laughed outloud at Jaxon…
…and then washed my face thoroughly again.
