Time For A Towel

I turn on the shower...undress...step into it, and then realize that I have no towel in the vicinity. I'd have to go downstairs (two flights down) to the basement to get a clean towel, since the linen closet has none to be found. Darn it. I'm already wet. What to do?

Georgie. My constant shadow. She will save the day! I tell her through the closed door, to run get momma a fluffy towel in the basement...please! She says "O'right!" and I hear her little steps disappear.

I continue my shower without worry, knowing that I will get a nice fluffy towel in a few minutes.

I am finished with my shower. Still no towel.

I yell for Georgie...again...and....again. Still no towel.

I spend much more time in the shower...waiting...hoping that Georgie will come. No such luck.

I finally get out..dripping, and dry off with... a baby blanket. I call for Georgie, to find out what kept her. She is blissfully playing downstairs, not a care in the world...or a towel to be seen.

The next morning, I know better. I make sure I have a towel before I step foot in the shower. Ahh...minutes go by as I bask undisturbed in the steaming hot water. But wait...the bathroom door is opening. I look out from the shower. George pokes her head through the door, throws a big towel on the ground, and says "Here ya go mommy. You're welcome." and shuts the door.

I bust up laughing, and promise myself to teach her the concept of time.

So funny! That Georgie is so cute!! This brings me back to your paper towel post. A baby blanket is WAY better than that at least!

Hahaha, that's a good one. At least she followed through... eventually!

So I am at school in the "very quiet" library reading this. Lets just say my laugh was so not following the rules. That is so funny, and yet sounds so right for a 4 year old to do. Loved it! xoxoxo

What is "time" to a little four year old?

And my kids act like they can't remember anything for five minutes. She remember for a whole day! That's pretty impressive.

That's awesome. A similar thing happened to me once with Ellorie and toilet paper. Let's just say we had a long talk after that one.

Tonya said...
