So, My Kids Have A Problem...

They don't think I should be able to lock the bathroom door.

I have to put my plug in everyday and, obviously, I can't do that in front of them.

I try to sneak off!

It doesn't work. Not ever.

The littlest will sit there (not quietly) the entire time...

"Mom! Mom! MOM!!! What are you doing?!" (Clearly, she knows I'm not just going to the bathroom.)

"Going to the bathroom, what do you need?"

"I need to show you a trick with my nose! Right NOW!" 

"I'm almost done, just hold on a second"

"INEEDTOSHOWYOUMYTRICKRIGHTNOW!!" 

I wish I could say she doesn't bang on the door like it's the end of the world, the entire time.

Her trick was balancing a checker on her nose, in case you were wondering.
Well, they aren't missing out, but it is kinda fun... 
Ahhhhhh, the wonderful life of a mom slave.

  1. Someday, in the not too distant future, you will knocking on that door asking here 'what she is doing in there?' Enjoy it while it lasts - you are her whole world and she wants to share you with no one, not even yourself.

    2. Leigh, I'm not looking forward to *that* time of their lives, so I will enjoy this time as best as I can. I, like Bleu, also love those words--thank you very much for the reminder!

      dancing, stay strong! ;)

      Bleu, you and me both...probably too soon.

    1. Roz, the littlest comes up with the craziest of things. Love that girl, but a couple minutes in the bathroom to myself would be nice. :)

      I thought it was funny, too.

    1. Thank you, Lindy! It has already gone by so fast, but in the moment it's hard to remember I will one day get to use the bathroom in peace. I don't even remember what that's like. Lol.

  4. I'd LOVE to tell you it gets better, but I have this thing about lying. snort. Our kids are all teens, so when they are out of the house we try to partake in noisier activities. Nothing like a jolt of reality when you are on your way to subspace, naked in the basement and you hear your son trying the combination ( we took the batteries out) lock on the front door.

    Do you have a lock on your bedroom door? My suggestion would be to close BOTH doors anyway, and let her try to figure out which one you are in. OR before going into the bathroom have a back up plan/assignment for her to do if she comes 'a knockin', such as, "Sweetie can you go give the dog a treat for me? ". Of course you have to word it like it is the MOST important job EVER that only SHE can do!

    I have to give you credit though, putting in a plug with a little person not inches away. Bravo!

    1. willie, lol, I like a girl that can keep things honest!!

      Gotta love those "oh shit" moments. We've had a few of those...

      That is a great idea, I'm totally going to have to come up with a task for her to do while I'm taking care of business.

  5. Oh, the near misses we've had here. Even with the bolt on the door, it doesn't stop the bizarre conversations that happen to circumvent opening it - mummy and daddy are.... watching TV... we'll be right out... once daddy has put away all the toys!
    They'll be a time in the future when this situation will be reversed and you'll be the one knocking on the door!

    1. DF, lol! It's funny how fast we can move in situations like that.

      I refuse to think about "those" days!

    1. abby, they sure don't seem to need me as urgently when I'm not in there. :)

      I've learned to be fast, but only out of necessity.

  7. Ha! I remember those days. As annoying as it can be at the time, they really do grow up all too quickly. ;)

    1. Lilli, I am so sorry it has taken me so long to reply to you!

      In the moment, it is so hard to remember that it won't always be like this! It is funny after the fact though. :)

  8. Wilma is absolutely right! You would think when they are teens, things would get better. OH...NO...I had almost the same situation as you the other day. In my bedroom with the door locked. I am taking a few photos. Apparently, she had to show me this video on her phone right then. So I jump up, abandoning my mini-photo shoot and put my clothes back on. I guess she looked under the gap in the door because she told her older sister all about what I was doing. So yeah...it doesn't get better! LOL

    1. little girl, LOL!! So what you're saying is, I gave up privacy when I had kids? :) Even though they haven't thought of that yet, I will put a towel at the bottom of the door from here on out!!! Lol.
