I'm joining Capital Mom today by blogging about a moment from my life based on a theme she has provided. This week’s Monday Moment theme is Peeking.

Can I come in?
Our weekday mornings are fairly predictable. The alarm goes off and one of us makes the first move - either leaning over to take a peek at the child in between us or peeking in his bedrooom door to see if he is still sleeping (depending on where he slept that night). When the coast is clear, that parent makes a mad dash to the bathroom to have an uninterrupted shower. While that parent is showering the other cuddles and wakes the sleeping child, convincing him to get up because it's time to get ready. The child is usually more interested in pretending to sleep with the blanket over his head and playing a silly game of peek-a-boo. But eventually he will hop to his feet when promised his morning vitamins. Instead of running to his room to get dressed he runs to the bathroom and the parent showering can hear his little feet approach the tub. He pulls the shower curtain back and peeks in. There's no Good Morning or Hello, but always a, Can I come in?
