‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

I was just getting out of the shower moments ago. I didn't realize Anastasia had come in to use the toilet. I opened the curtain in all my middle-aged nakedness to find my daughter there, and she looks me up and down with a big smirk on her face and says,

"Helloooooo...........(long pause).............YOU!"

I'm still laughing.

Maybe you had to be there :)


  1. My daughter once asked if she would have to "roll her boobies up and tuck them in too".


  2. I can beat that! a few years ago i was in the shower, having turned round and bent over to shave my legs - clearly this was before i did my back in, not just for the bending but also for the leg shaving! Lol! - not realising that Little Miss R walked in and had stood there watching me for a bit.
    "MAMEEEE!!!!! Do you know you've got hairs up your bum????!!!!" she yelled. Of course it would be a warm day and the bathroom window was open. From next door I heard my neighbours, who were sat out on the patio OF COURSE!, splutter and half choke himself whilst the rest of the family disolved into a fit of uncontrollable mirth. Guess what i got for my birthday? A gift card from a beauty parlour over in the town, guess what it was for? Yep, that's right, waxing treatment!**blush**
    To prevent any future shower trauma for my daughter do you reckon? The irony of it being, two days after my birthday my back gave out so the voucher never got used. I wonder where it is and if it's still in date?? Hmm..........

  3. Ha ha!!

    So great that you two are that comfortable with each other.

  4. Jupiter has critically informed me: "Mom. Your bras are hanging down." Probably why I'll never be in the fashion show.

    Well, she couldn't exactly get up and leave, could she? LOL

    I come from a family that has our share of whoopses - what can you do but laugh? You might as well, it's good for the soul!
