Log this under things I can't believe I am sharing. Last night one of the Wild Ones needed help in the shower and I didn't want to go to bed with a wet head...so...I put on a shower cap and started to get undressed (for the shower, remember?) But for some reason-which escapes me now-I wondered into the kitchen in my shorts and cap. Of course the Big Guy was laughing so hard he couldn't manage to ask me what I was doing, but did figure out how to follow me into the kitchen and suggest that I NEEDED goggles and gloves-which he just happened to have handy. Well something was missing so he decided I also needed flippers (also handy...three kids...summer time). Just as I was standing up from adjusting my elongated feet, I noticed the Big Guy standing there with my camera. After striking the mermaid pose (covering up the girls), I waddled back into the bedroom to surprise the Wild One. In true princess fashion I was going to jump around the corner and try to spook her. Have you ever tried jumping in flippers? I landed against the door frame and the Wild One turned around and rolled her eyes at me. It's a little anticlimactic when you have to ask, "Aren't I funny?" She said (and I quote), "A half naked woman with goggles and a shower cap? Not so much." Well the Big Guy walked in and we rolled around laughing. I guess it's a good thing we can still entertain each other-when the Wild Ones leave we will just have each other!
