Mommy Moment of the day!

Today's Mommy Moment addresses bathroom privacy.

Seriously. Is there any way to guarantee yourself some privacy in the bathroom when you have a toddler? This morning I actually brought my laptop in there for a few minutes (don't worry, I wasn't blogging!) and I had a cat on the sink, my dog in the door-frame and my daughter standing at the sink on her potty-stool with a graham cracker in her hand.

COME ON! Give me a minute to pee in peace, would you? Someone? Anyone? GO AWAY!

I had to remind her that we 'don't eat in the bathroom,' and tossed the dog out on his ear. The cat kind of just stood there waiting for water, but I refused and he eventually left. I barely got a new roll of toilet paper out of the vanity before my daughter came back explaining that she had finished her graham cracker, through a mouth full of crumbs.

Ah, the joys of parenting!


  1. As moms, we never get ANY privacy. I know exactly what you mean, just let us pee in peace!!!

  2. Ha ha, I'm so with you! My boys are big enough now not to actually come in anymore, but they stand at that door the whole time lol. Plus my cats know that it's the only time I am alone and they demand attention. Sigh, one day maybe we can all pee in peace. :)

  3. It's like a revolving door is installed in my bathroom. I've got no dignity left at this point.

  4. Thanks, everyone. I'm seriously considering installing a dead-bolt. But with my luck she'd figure out how to work it and lock herself in. The mess that would be!
