There are certain things promised to us as human beings and also, as Americans. But once you become a parent, I believe you give up many of those rights, whether you realize it at first or not. One being a long, hot shower. Not that any of us should be taking long showers, especially in drought-ridden California…but maybe just a shower a day? Or…a shower every couple days? Is that too much to ask? Apparently so. And the days I do manage to get one usually involve a screaming toddler on the other side of the shower door, so I have to finish in lightning speed. Real relaxing.
