I have been craving a hot bubble bath all day long. I actually haven't taken one all week, and these old bones were aching. So at 7:30, Denny was about to go to bed and Grace was playing in her "princess world." So I headed up to my bedroom where the BIG, DEEP tub is. The one I begged and pleaded for when we remodeled the upstairs.
I got the water going and the bubbles were foaming up perfectly. I laid down in the tub, cracked open the first page of "The Devil Wears Prada," and took a nice deep breathe. I was so relaxed, it felt amazing. As I began the second sentence of my book, I heard the patter of footsteps coming up the steps. Then I see Grace's big smiling face, hands filled with all her doctor kit accessories. "Ready for your check up Momma!!" I guess she must have gotten past my security. Normally in this situation I would scream downstairs for said security to come and bounce this girl out of my "15 minutes." But damn, she looked so cute and excited, that I didn't have the heart to make her leave me alone. Instead, I closed my book, got my checkup and had one of the best conversations I have ever had.
