I caught a moment on camera as the sun went down tonight.
Hubbie had decided to wash the car in the evening, and baby girl as usual had decided to ‘help.’
If you have a child that wants to help you do anything, you can imagine what the above would be like… much less what it’d be like when a HOSE is involved.
It was all well and good for me as I was taking a momentary pause and snapping away at them… but Hubbie turned to me, mid-snap, and said “I have just gained 10 grey hairs.”
After all of the shared soapy sponging of car, and shared washing of the car, baby girl pulsing water from the hose in the air like a gazillion times, and then deciding to water ALL the plants in the front yard 3 times each, she then decided she didn’t want to give the hose back.
Hubbie stood there telling her somewhat calmly that she had to give it back.
And that’s when I went snap! snap! snap!
Because I knew, in no time at all this would be a funny story. It would be one of those things that we could look back on fondly and say “remember when she would hog the hose?”
Only we wouldn’t have to wait ’til next year, next month or next week…
Foresight told me that it was only a matter of a change of scenery.
I took a final pic that showed baby girl complying –
Happy for once, that despite all my positivity, it was him, and not ME.
