Who's next in line?

This weekend, we discovered the key to helping our kids ( and the parents) be more content with our single bathroom for ten people.  (Okay, so that only counts for showers, since only 8 of those people use the toilet.)


So what secret did we discover?  I'm sure anyone with only one bathroom is longing to hear.


Attend a family reunion ... with only one bathroom for as many as 75 people.  Okay, so not everyone was there at once, but it still makes for some complications.  "Who's next in line?" was a common question.


We are home now, taking turns in our bathroom to wash off the sweat, the dust, and for some kids ... the fish grime and pond scum.  And you know what?  It really isn't too bad.   In fact, it almost feels ... luxurious!


Remind me of that the next time I have two children doing the "potty dance" in the hallway and another one taking their time in the bathroom.


It was a wonderful family reunion, but it's good to be home.

Rejoicing in Family,
April E.
