He said he was tired from walking over 13,000 steps yesterday but he still drew us a warm bath to soak in together once the girls went down hours past their bedtimes. It would be our first silent moment together all day and that white, porcelain claw foot tub was calling our names. We forgot to dim the lights and the cheap plastic bathtub toys I bought the girls on the way to our vacation spot were strewn on the floor rather than lit candles. It wasn’t romantic or sexy but rather sweet & still...a moment to connect and of course talk all about the highs and lows with the girls that day. Even before our fingers could turn pruney, our oldest daughter walks in the bathroom and goes straight to the toilet. She takes a seat and gets all comfy then says “you guys do your thing, I’ve gotta poop”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And that my friends is the perfect picture of vacation as a parent. We laughed so stinking hard and I asked my brain to remember this forever so just incase it forgets, which it probably will, now my instagram journal has it jotted down.
