  • The door is open unless my husband or oldest is home. Otherwise I still have to supervise.

    The other day I was in the bathroom for an extended visit (damn Taco Bell!) and I heard the front door open. I hurried to finish and ran out to find my 2 year old outside naked, some how he figured out ow to unlock the dead bolt. If the door had been closed, who knows what would have happened.

  • Um I am confused why this question is for SAHM. I work but I also close the door. I like my privacy.

  • I can't remember the last time I shut the bathroom door. When I first had kids, I would no sooner get in & get started, before the door would open for a multitude of reasons. If it wasn't the kids, it was the dog, so I gave up on having it shut. My oldest is 25 & my youngest is 3, so I don't think I'm gonna be getting to close it anytime soon!

  • If I leave the door open I can't get to the toilet - when it's open it's barely an inch from the front of the bowl. So no, it's closed, but not completely shut.

  • It depends on what they are doing. I normally leave it open but the bathroom is a room or two away. They normally follow me anyway so what's a door to them. lol

  • Open if I am the only one home. My son is 1 and can not get into the bathroom because we keep a gate up so he cant get into the litter box. But that way I can hear if he is doing something he is not supposed to. Or I can hear if he got hurt.

  • Bathroom door is open, but the bedroom door is closed they way I can still hear them.
