me naked and the phases of the moon…

moon-phases2There are a few moments in your life when you know you are a mom. Today, my son was learning the phases of the moon. I must have explained the rotation of the moon around the earth and how the sun reflects on it to make each shape of the moon a hundred times. We were running around this morning trying to get out of the house when he tracks me down in the shower. Now, I’m used to not having any privacy…most moms are, but I didn’t realize how weird this was into I was about 15 minutes into the conversation. I was getting frustrated and trying to dry off after my shower when I finally picked up the shampoo and said “DEAN, HERBAL ESSENCES IS THE SUN, THE WATERMELON 2-IN-1 SHAMPOO IS THE MOON AND THE SHOWER HEAD IS THE EARTH”….and I grab the bottles and am rotating the herbal essences around the watermelon while the sun (or showerhead) remains constant. I then explain that as the herbal essences moves around the watermelon 2-in-1 the shadow it creates on the watermelon shampoo changes to people that are on the showerhead!! It made perfect sense!! I actually think he got it and it wasn’t weird at all…. until I realized I was buck naked, holding shampoo and explaining the laws of light, physics and science in my bathroom. In any other scenario I would probably be arrested…but today my naked-ness wasn’t even discussed. We were learning about the moon and we didn’t even discuss my naked ass. ┬áToday, I am a mom.
