The View From Here

Every parent deserves a couple of minutes of peace and privacy in their day. For us, that can sometimes only be found in The Royal Lavatory. With capitals. For those of you who are unfamiliar with my husband's code name for his reading room, it is the the bathroom.

Owen and Will haven't got these rules figured out yet. No surprise there, but I never dreamt that we would need to implement a program to teach that a closed door means 'don't go in'.

Yesterday afternoon, I was out of the house for a few hours as I ran a bunch of errands before picking up the boys from school. Add to that a couple of cups of coffee and a couple of meltdowns on the drive home and you can understand why my couple of minutes on the throne were a couple of minutes I was looking forward to.

Here was a view from my sanctuary, don't worry it isn't labeled NSFW (Not Safe For Work):

Owen charged in the moment my cheeks hit the porcelain. He wanted me to find Sesame Street on YouTube RIGHT NOW! and he proceeded to scream bloody murder to show his upset. Will ran in to pull Owen's hair to let him know he wasn't happy about the noise. It didn't help. Jess the dog ran in to lick my face in her anxiety that the world was ending.

Where's the peace? A couple of seconds to pee. Is that too much to ask?

Wow! When you can't get away from it all in the bathroom then you really have no privacy!

That's sooo funny!!! I'm sure it wasn't funny at the time lol. I can remember when I was little that every time I needed my mom really bad, she was in the bathroom so we'd all (me and my 3 sisters) would kick and scream at the door. And I can remember her saying "Can't I pee in peace?" Now Ethan does the same thing to me. I can remember the day I realized I was going to have to start locking the bathroom door because he opened it and walked right in lol.
