Girlfriend

Apparently, I do my best thinking in the bathroom – particularly in the bathtub, but I’m sure I’ve hit a stroke of genius while sitting on the throne in the past too.

Today, my stroke of genius hit me as I was rubbing coconut oil into my skin and trying to remember what I was going to do after I got dressed (I still don’t remember). As I was frantically rushing around, Red ran in with F to help him use the potty, and then the two made their way to the kitchen where Red prepared F’s breakfast.

Standing there, I realized why I’ve had so many crap relationships. I realized why I’m so happy, so in love.

I used to want a boyfriend. I had boyfriends. I was their girlfriend.

I didn’t have real relationships. Real relationships aren’t husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends. They’re made up of partners – and for the first time, I can honestly say that I’ve got one.

But, every now and again I’ll slum it and refer to myself as his girlfriend.
