Breakfast had been eaten.
Kiddos were busy playing.
I needed to pee.
So I went to the bathroom.
Dare I close the door?
I'm sure you can relate: as soon as they hear that door click shut, it's over.
But I risked it. The potential for a few moments of quiet was worth it.
Wow! I got to go pee and wash my hands without interruptions.
I look at my face in the mirror.
Wowzers! My eyebrows are getting gnarly!
I become reckless with the few moments of peace I have been given!
With the speed of a lightening bolt I reach for the tweezers!
One, two, three, four....I get to pluck a good number of those obnoxious eyebrow hairs!
I keep going! Maybe I can get both done! I'll alternate between the two so I don't look uneven!!!
"Momeeee!!! Momeeeeeeeee! MOMEEEEEE!!!! Sharky Boy coloured on my paper!!!"
Door swings open.
I have one tidy eyebrow and one half-gnarly eyebrow.
Sorry hairy-one, you will have to wait till my next elusive moment of peace.
