Never Alone

I thought I had done it.

I thought that the monkeys were occupied with something else, and wouldn’t notice that I was going to go to the bathroom.

I thought that, for once, I might be allowed to take care of business like an adult.


In private.

Then, it was so quiet, that after I was done, I sat on the edge of the tub, for just a moment.

Listening to the silence.

Then, I saw it.

Reminding me that I am never alone.

And what a wonderful way to be!

(Baby Monkey was kind enough to do a reinactment for me, so that I could snap a picture, because…well, let’s just say that my camera comes with me almost everywhere, but not quite.)


  1. This made me laugh! I don’t have any kids, but I do have an unruly kitten who does the same exact thing.

  2. Aww, Amy. They just love you so much. Don’t expect any peace and quite until they are grown and gone…. I am still waiting to hear the news though that another monkey is on it’s way! LOL

  5. Okay, I figured it out Amy. You have to LOG OUT of wordpress and then enter your URL manually to get it in your signature. Like this, voila!

  6. I read a biography about a women from the early 1900s. One of the things she talked about was how happy she was to go out to the outhouse because every once in a while the kids wouldn’t follow her and she would have a few moments peace. So I guess historially it’s always been this way.
