Let’s just keep it real for a minute. WHY is it that when I go to the bathroom– my kids need a snack, they can’t find something they need RIGHT now, I hear a cluster eff of screaming and bickering OR that the other bathroom is being used and they can’t hold it. WHY? I literally am never in the bathroom longer than 15 minutes (that’s even with a shower) and all hell breaks loose. Do I pick the wrong time to get shit done or what? I cannot even believe how many times my bathroom breaks get interrupted. I mean, yeah, I lock the door– but the banging, the bobby pinning, the whining… It really kills my mood. Is this a mom thing?
I feel like Dads get some sort of unlimited clock. Dads, if you’re out there– correct me if I’m wrong. BUT I’m pretty sure, Dads are killing the bathroom game. I don’t even know how or why, but my kids’ response is “Dad’s in the bathroom.” Civil. Calm. A little annoyed, but they go on their merry way and wait. What in the actual fuck. I would kill to have uninterrupted bathroom time (during regular hours.. LOL), have my kids just wait or not have them at each other’s throats while I’m peeing.
How the HECK do I get on another bathroom level? (Side note- this is also probably why I wake up so gosh darn early so that I can be fully awake before my kids get up and get in some QT alone in the bathroom.) SOS.
