Friday High Five

I have been reading a new blog called This Crazy Thing Called Motherhood and she has recently stumbled along a blog that has you make a list of your 5 favorite things. It can be anything from your 5 most favorite people (or most hated), 5 things you would do if it were the end of the world, etc. You get the idea. Her list was great so I think I will play along.

Five Things I Would If I Could Get Five Minutes Alone.

1. Go to the bathroom. Yep, not very creative but I would love to go to the bathroom without a knock at the door asking me what I am doing in there. Then come the little fingers under the door. Shortly followed by a screaming fit because I will not open the door so he can come in.

2. Take a cat nap. With three kids who like to go to bed late and get up early, I am always in need of a nap. Usually all I need is five minutes to just close my eyes and re-energize. Then I'm good to go again.

3. Take a shower. I love hot hot showers. They are so relaxing. Well, as soon as the little rats hear the water come on they all come running in the room butt naked. All screaming and jumping up down "I want a shower! I want a shower!" Unfortunately they do not like hot hot showers.

4. I would sit and stare into no where. If you are a mom then you know what I am talking about. Just sit.....and stare. Like you have a illness or something. I guess in a way we do. It's called motherhood.

5. I would scrapbook so my husband will quit giving me crap about how much money I spend on scrapbook supplies and gadgets and never do anything with it. I often tell him "Well, if you would take them away for a while then I would be able to." Serenity is at that age where she wants to help. But she has to dump everything and mix everything together and with me that is a BIG NO NO! Everything has its place. Other wise I get over whelmed and can not work. Silly I know but that is how I am.

Okie Doke there you go. What is your fave High Five?


  1. My kids do the same thing when I take baths. They hear me running the water, come bang on the door and scream, and when I give in and open (unlock) the door, I find them naked and ready to hop in the bath with me. (But they don't like hot baths like I do. lol)

    Good list! I could totally relate to all of them. The desire to pee uninterrupted, to use all the scrapbook supplies I have collected, and to just sit and zone out.

    I do get to take naps with my son and the little girl I baby-sit when they nap, so that is nice. :)

  2. Hmm, I posted a comment last night and it didn't show I shall post again.

    I like you list! I totally relate to all of it: the desire to pee solo, the desire to use all the scrapbook stuff I have amassed, and to just sit and stare into space...ahh, that would be nice!

    My kids are the same way about interrupting showers, although in my case its actually baths. I love to take baths...and so do my kids. Consequently, whenever they hear the water running, they run to the door and bang on it to the point that the neighbors are probably starting to wonder if I have a hostage in my bathroom. lol

  3. I moderate my comments so I have to approve them before they show up. I probably need to change that.

  4. Hi Amanda! I cracked up when I read #4! That would be on my list, too! LOL

    Came over from MBC/Follow Me group. Wanted to say 'hi' and let you know I'm following!

  5. Great list! I'm with you on the shower thing! And number 4. I mean I attempt it sometimes, but usually end up with a kid and/or cat in my lap.

  6. No, I actually have mine set that way too...I just didn't see the "Your comment will be visible after moderation" note that usually pops up, so I thought it didn't take my comment. Sorry for the repeat comment!
