This is me (Heather) doing serious scientific research. I needed to pick out a shower head for Aidan’s bathroom. There were just so many choices but I found one I thought would be best. I had almost made my final decision when I began to wonder if it would be too heavy for Aidan. Poor kid could get this super duper accessible bathroom only to be left with a shower head that he can’t use.
So clearly I needed to hold it and consider Aidan’s strength and muscle control. What you can’t see in this picture is that I had to climb up on a shelf to reach it. This serious scientific research is risky stuff, but a mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do.
Five more seconds and that shower head would have become my microphone, but no, I saw a sales clerk approaching. I thought, gosh this would make an interesting story to be kicked out of a store at XX years of age after being a rule follower for most of my life. I was getting my in the name of serious scientific research apology ready when the sales clerk asked…
“Can I get you a towel?”
