Achievement unlocked: Queenhood

This morning I was followed into the bathroom by a very grumpy, very sleepy little girl (who'd kept me up for hours in the middle of the night). She shuffled into the bathroom and lay down on the bath mat, resting her head on my feet while I was sitting on the toilet (which wasn't at all awkward).

Then Benjamin, who is a real slug-a-bug in the mornings, stumbled into the hallway and collapsed, prostrate, behind Zoë, right in the doorway to the bathroom.

Andrew walked by, ignoring (and stepping over) Benjamin, and I called out, "In the mornings my children fall down to worship me while I sit upon my throne."

Andrew backtracked to take in the scene and started laughing.

"I wish," he said, "That this was an appropriate thing to take a picture of."

Seriously, though, this moment of my life needs to be immortalized somehow. Any illustrators out there?
