There are things I love about being a mother. I love getting kisses. I love having a funny, sweet, chatty little person to hang out with all day. I love that all I need to feel luxuriously free and rested is having an hour or two without her. I love lots of things.
What I don’t love so much is fishing things out of the toilet. Today my little darling has deposited in this unsavoury location the following articles:
1 plastic donkey
2 hair elastics
1 tube of toothpaste
1 empty shampoo bottle taken from the bathroom rubbish bin (another issue we have)
1 pair of socks
And this was a day when the bathroom door was kept shut. She is a model of using the smallest opportunities to the greatest effect. That is the most positive spin I can put on things.
