Mine! Mine! Mine!

In an effort to take better care of myself, I have a liter-sized water bottle that I keep filled. I try to drink two a day, besides my usual 2-3 cups of tea, and the occasional pop.

There is nothing special about this bottle. It's just a TyNant bottle that I refill. And yet my family can't seem to leave it alone.

"Iaa soooommmmme!" Little Man says every time he sees it.

"Can I have some of yours?" Ella asks after I offer her her own bottle.

Bubblehead walks by and swigs off of it.

I have told the kids no, this is Mommy's water, and they are welcome to their own. I have explained to Bubblehead that I use the bottle to gauge how much water I drink every day, and when he drinks from it it throws me off. I thought that would be enough.

Last night he drank out of it, and then refilled what he had drank.

Why is it so hard to have something that is all mine? Just mine to share with no one? I have to share everything else - just give me this bottle of water, okay? It's not about the bottle, it's the principle. Let me have this one thing!!

I'm the Mom of two. They drive me crazy. I love them dearly. I want one more. I'm not insane, yet. My hubby says I'm a snob with an inferiority complex. There is more to me than being a mother. I just don't remember any of it.
