Our Journey Home

( Daddy and Wubs stretching during soccer practice.)

It wasn't until I became a mommy that I truly understood the importance of multi-tasking. I enjoy a good challenge, such as folding laundry while simultaneously playing Pet Shops with Wubs, changing a diaper while listening to my voicemail, cooking dinner while playing hide-n-go seek...the list goes on and on. This morning, however, I attempted to take my multi-tasking to a new level. wink. Wubs wanted to take a tubby and Bella wanted to eat breakfast, so I thought, "Hmmm, why can't we do both?" I prepared a plateful of waffles, and then I got the bath ready. I helped both girls get into the bathtub, and I cut up the waffles into delicious bite sized pieces. It was going really well until... Bella's tummy got full. I held the fork out for Bella, with a yummy waffle bite dangling. Bella pushed my hand away and said, "All done, mama". It was then that a 'terrible' thing happened. That little waffle piece flung off the fork and splashed into the water. You would have thought a tarantula had accidentally fallen in the tubby! Both girls began splashing and screaming, "Ahhhh! Get it, mommy!!!!" I was doing my best to fish out the waffle, but it began to break apart into even smaller pieces. Bella started to cry. Wubs continued to shout, "Get it, mommy!!!That's nasty!!!" Although it seemed like a good idea at the time, I don't think I'll be serving breakfast to our little girls in the bathtub again. (Daddy giving Bella a quick sugar during a time out!)
