Coffee & Showers

I'm serious. Kind of.

On Monday, my husband had the day off work for President's Day. I suppose I don't get true "days off" from my job as a SAHM, but there are a few perks when my husband is home, and I try to enjoy them.

One of those perks is [sometimes] an uninterrupted shower.

I love showers. I do not forgo showers; I didn't even skip them too often when my kids were babies. I need one at some point in the day (the earlier the better) to feel like myself.

I also need coffee every day to feel human and happy.

Why not combine the two?

Here is my simple how-to on how to shower with coffee:

1. Tell the kids to please not kill each other (this is crucial).
2. Run to the best shower in the house with a hot cup of coffee in hand (be careful).
3. Two options: Place mug on countertop within reach of shower (and reach out to take your sips).
If you have a longer bathtub-type shower style, the real badass move is to place mug on the bathtub ledge across from you, risking a bit of splashing into the cup.
4. Enjoy!

That's it!

What stealth moves have you mastered since becoming a mom? Do tell!

  1.

What a knack!! it can not get any better. But it can! i know you will surprise!!And all of us will be shaking our heads , sharing motherhood and laughter. Ha ha!! Thank you for the laughs."giggles"

    1. "What could be pathos, you made laughter." Thank you! I really do try to find humor in every mothering situations. Otherwise it's just all too hard!

    2. You have got this 'mothering' thing!!! You inspire me all the time! What a relief laughter can be! And I regularly hold bed picnics. Switch on a show, fetch popcorn and fruit. As the kids watch and eat and maybe squabble , I ask them to pretend mamma has gone to camp and swiftly go under a duvet.And SLEEP for a good twenty minutes. My eight year old will set an alarm on his watch to know when mamma will be back!!Heavenly if you don't mind the crumbs !
