This afternoon I amazingly got all of the boys down for a nap at the same time and decided to take advantage with a run on the treadmill. I knew I had a limited amount of time so I cooled down as quickly as possible and jumped into the bath (yes, we are still waiting for our bathroom remodel to be fully functional- so a bath it is).
I was only in the bath a few minutes when the door swung wide open and Joey and Tommy tumbled in. I pulled my legs up to my chest, suddenly aware of my recent shyness around Joey.
Tommy: "Are you taking a bath, Mumma?"
Me: "Uh-huh. Could you go wait in your room and I'll be right out?"
Tommy: "Are you just having so much fun in there, Mumma?"
Me: "Um. No. I'm getting cold now. Could you close the door?"
Joey: "You have boobies, Mom."
Me: "Yes, I do."
Joey: "That's funny."
Me: "Why is that funny?"
Joey: "I don't know."
Tommy: "There is milk in yos boobies."
Joey: "Yeah, for Benny."
Joey: "I used to drink that milk when I was little."
Tommy: "Me too."
Tommy: "Do you have a penis?"
Me: "No, boys have penises. Mummie is a girl, and I have a vagina."
Joey: "Can I see it?"
Me: "NO. That's private. We don't show people our penises or vaginas. Could you please go wait in your room now?"
Joey and Tommy: "Okay."
Joey: "You have a lot of water in there. Can I have that much water when I take a bath?"
Joey: "Okay. Now don't splash, cuz Daddy gets mad."
Me: "Okay. You two can go now. I'm freezing."
The boys finally left, but for the remainder of the 2 minutes it took me to wash up I kept seeing little fingers poking under the door, followed by, "Are you done yet, Mumma?"
Who knew I would be so sorely missed after an absence of just 5 minutes? A little annoying, yes, but also a bit flattering.
