My husband & I have been married almost 10 years. That is a lot by today's standards. We have been together 12 years & have 2 girls ages 11 & almost 3. Here's the deal....I have NO privacy.

My husband works offshore so he is only home half of the year so he isn't so bad. Its the little ones. Every time I go to the bathroom somebody walks in. I have to wait till the oldest is in school & its the little ones nap time before I can go potty alone. I also love the announcement from my youngest that it stinks. She comes in & says "Mommy stinky." When I tell her to get out her reply "No I sit here" & she perches on the step leading up to the tub. *Sigh* But when its her turn she tells me to get out. Which by the way I do.

The oldest too does not understand the concept of a closed door. And she want to have a conversation between the closed door. Oh for Pete's sake leave me alone. And I don't even want to talk about showers. I usually wait till 10:30 or 11pm to shower when the husband is gone so I can shower in peace.

And don't expect me to answer my cell in there either. That's my time. Leave a message & I'll get back to you. Nothing is that important. It bothers me when people get annoyed that I don;t answer it. Hello people....can't a girl do her thing in peace????


  1. LOL! A few times, somehow, the whole family has ended up in the bathroom WITH ME. 3 boys, a husband, and 2 cats. WTH! Seriously, leave me alone! LOL Luckily it doesn't happen often, especially since the boys are getting older. Boys don't belong in the bathroom with girls. lol.

    Just lock them out and let them whine by the door. Eventually, they'll get the point, MAYBE!

    My thing is to wait until all the kids are in bed so I can eat dinner in peace and then enjoy a skinny cow ice cream! :)

  2. I decided to draw myself a bath yesterday since I wasn't feeling well. Michael tried to climb in fully clothed! I sympathize completely!!
