As a kid the only time I would get to talk with my mom was in the bathroom. Than again their were 7 of us so fighting for moms time we took it when could get it. So sometimes it was sitting on the bathroom counter talking to her about whatever was going on.
Now that I am a
mom the bathroom is my quite time away from the tiny humans who go
hunting for me the second I step out of their line of site.
tried the whole come on in while I take care of business but soon my

their bedrooms. They never came looking for me in their bedrooms Go
In the famous words of my 5 year old (Counting down the days until she is in ALL day Kindergarten)

use the bathroom? Why do you always pee? Why do you have to poop. I need
you to stop that and listen to me!
