Day 1 The First Big Smile

It happened! A big laughin' smile! 
After a rough morning of getting my boy off to school and trying to figure out why my girl hasn't been feeling well, I needed a moment. I wasn't sure when it would happen or if it would feel forced, but I was on the look out for the chance to really let go. Kids were both home and settled in so I thought I would hop in the shower before heading out to my son's social group. While turning on the water I started thinking about why it takes my 9 year old son so long in the shower... He gets distracted and just hangs out in there. He's come out countless times with dry hair! What a waste of a good shower right? Maybe not... That got me thinking about ways to make showers more worthwhile. How could I really benefit emotionally from my shower? The answer came with music! 
One good song came on and I decided to let loose! Even the confined space of the shower didn't deter me from having a good ol' time right then and there! Arms were flying, hair was flinging water and I loved it! I lathered, rinsed and repeated all while shaking my groove thang! I continued my dance-a-thon while I dried off and when all was said and done, I felt goooood! All that was left to do was to laugh at myself and blissfully wonder if I could get a bigger shower...
