What is it about kids and animals that they don’t want a momma to pee in peace? No seriously is there some logical explanation that would make sense to us mommas why oh why we can never cop a squat alone…ever!
Literally we are home all day, our kids have the pleasure of having our presence all day and all night, and that’s still never enough for them. They can’t seem to get enough of us because they want to stay connected at the hips even we need to just cop a squat! As terrible as that sounds its true. I am trying to figure out tricks on ditching the kid and the dog to have a moment of silence in the restroom. I can’t even fart in peace. That would create a bunch of ewww comments, jokes, our son probably announcing he heard me fart to any and everyone that will listen to him. It would just be a debacle.
When and how can we set ground rules for having private time that they will actually listen to? Or is that wishful thinking right now…please enlighten me because I am still trying to adjust to being a stay at home mom that can actually go to the bathroom without hearing…
“Mom where are you going?”
“Mom how long are you going to be?”
“Mom can I have food?”
“Mom can you watch me play my game?”
“Mom what can we do fun?”
The list goes on and on and on…it never stops. I don’t know when it will and how it will. I guess when he’s closer to a teen and wants to have his own space. Until then I will dream about having a private and quiet bathroom trip.
