So after viewing numerous blogs on blogmad I decided to write a bit on being a parent and the privacy we give up in becoming a parent.
Okay, so we know that when we get married, some instances of privacy go right out the door. Whoever said that being a parent meant that you can't go to the toilet without so much as free "wiping space"? Those that are parents know what I mean...right?
Think for a minute. You NEED to use the toilet, you attempt to close the door; what happens instead? Yes, you guessed it, "Mommy, Mommy!"
Me: Now, I am yelling; "What? I am on the toilet, can't I get some peace?"
Child: "But Mommy, I need to tell you something."
Me: "Can't I get just a moment, come on. After all, do I come into the bathroom when you use the toilet?"
Child: "Umh, no, well..."
Me: "You are how old? 10, right? Can't you wait until I am finished? Unless you want to smell something stinky? Do ya? Do you really want too smell this?"
Child: "I don't care Mommy, I just need to ask you a question."
Me: "OMG, well I care, go away, leave me alone. Let me wipe in peace"
Child: "Ok Mommy, but can I tell you since I am here?"
Me: "Oh good Lord, go ahead, you are standing right here, tell me." Rolls eyes and thinks to self: Please, Please let me crap in peace; just for once.
Child: "Bells (not real name of course)yelled at me; she is being mean"
Me: "Did you really have to come to me with this NOW? Come on, that is nothing I need hear right now. Are you bleeding? Are you dieing? Did you break something? No? Well then go the "freak" away!
I know, I know, how horrible a parent I am telling my kids to go away; but really, I am on the toilet...it can wait!
Now, I realize bathroom chat/talk is not for everyone, but it is part of life. When I go to the bathroom I expect to be able to get my business done and get out. I don't want to "smell" it any longer than I have too. Whoever said you like the "smell" of your own was sadly mistaken. Okay, so I know that wasn't necessary, but still makes me chuckle. ;)
