1538002819232So decided to take a bath with my daughters today and as we were relaxing and playing with their toys, my youngest suddenly shots up and yelled

“mummy spider!”

I turned around in the direction of  her little finger and  came face to face with the  longest creepy spider resting on the edge of the bath tub looking like it was ready to leap into the bath.

I shot up just as quickly as my eldest who was sitting next to me in the tub. I grabbed hold of both girls to stop then from falling as they tried to get away from the spider and we all let out loud squeaky screams.

Looking around I realised that I was  the adult and  had to do something.

“mummy, take the cup and put it in there”. That wasn’t a bad idea actually. Looks like my older baby was thinking more straight than I was, lol

After I disposed of the spider. She started giggling at the way I shot out of the water. I looked at her in shock which just made her giggle even more. I felt so embarrassed. Living just as 3 females, well we have to look out for one another. lol. Obviously I am the adult in this case but it is amazing when your little ones care for you just as much as you do for them and can share such moments together.

I have always said throughout my blogs that I can never understand mothers that give up their children for the love of a man or just give them up to start over somewhere else. I could never live without my babies. They are my rock, my life, my oxygen. I would stop breathing if they were taken away from me.

This moment in the bath is one that we will talk about for a long time and giggle about. (#Precious moments) Create beautiful moments with your little ones. Its the smallest ones that they will cherish the most, something as simple  as a bath and spider panic.
