Mommy has to go potty...

Honestly, doesn't matter if I say it or not... It seems like there's a potty radar implanted into their brains. As soon as I go in there, they are soon to follow.

When did your kids stop going into the bathroom every time you were going?

  • I have a 7month old son but prior to being a mom, I was a nanny for ten years. The children always needed to go go potty with me! I found this very frustrating and had a little talk with them about privacy. I explained that everyone needs a little privacy and alone time especially in the bathroom. Before I knew it, they were asking me to shut the door for them so they could have privacy:) They were 2 and 3 year old boys.

  • My 3 yo son is watching his favorite show on TV and as I'm getting inside the bathroom he comes running and says "mom what are you doing" if I had a nickel every time I get to answer the same question!

  • I never allowed it. I always shut the door and when they were old enough to open the door I locked it. They used to sit/stand outside the door and whine but were never allowed inside the bathroom with me.
