I needed twenty minutes to myself
to unwind from the long day.
I thought, "I'll take a bubble bath
while Daddy and babies play."
I was eager and excited to unwind.
Daddy understood; he didn't mind.
I closed the door to soak my bones
The next thing I know, I'm hearing moans.
Outside the door, little girly thing
Had discovered Mommy's lonely fling.
My much needed immersion
Was to her, utter desertion.
I avoided chubby fingers 'neath the door in despair,
I ignored her, turned away, and I washed my hair.
A minute later visits my little guy
To tell me he heard the baby cry.
Next was my oldest, full of children's news.
Ten minutes in, I still had the blues.
Four visits later, I still heard cries
And knocks on the door and handle tries.
She busted in, fat cheeks in a smile
To come and splash her Mom a while.
Babies never want to be with Mommy more,
Than when she tries to close the bathroom door.
