April 22, 2008
I told Ami around 8:30 that I was going upstairs to take a shower. She came up here at 9 and – as I expected, said, “Did you even take a shower yet?” She knows my procrastination habits!! “Ha! I KNEW you were going to ask me that!” I laughed. “No, Ami, not yet. But I did pick out my clothes. I always do that first.” (And check my email, and put away some of your toys and pile up the things I am taking to work today). “the thing is, Ami, I would rather do pretty much anything rather than get ready. I just don’t like getting myself pretty. There are so many other things to do.” She stood still a minute, then turned and walked out of the bathroom. She paused in my room and said, “Mom, you have to take a shower. Or – - - I’m gonna kick your butt.” Poor thing didn't know what to say but felt there had to be some action taken! When she was well out of sight I snuck out of the bathroom over to the computer to write this. What's a few more minutes? Family memories are more important than getting ready, right…..

I love Ami, she is so cute! I am glad to hear that I am not the only mother that tells my kids I am doing one thing and then end up doing something completely different! Are you going to come hang out with my kids this week? They will be at Cathy's Wednesday and Thursday and then again on Saturday. Hopefully they can play with your kids. Talk to you soon!
