See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
just let me have 5 freaking minutes!
I go in the bathroom to get 5 minutes of peace and quiet... I leave the door cracked so I can still hear everything in the house and keep an ear out for any trouble... DS, 7, perfectly content watching his cartoons so I think I will get 5 minutes to myself. WRONG! The darn dog sticks her head in and looks at me...I closed the door all the way so the dog can't stare at me... she panics! Scratching, putting her paws under the door and pulling the bathroom rug out into the hallway UNDER the door, whining...then here comes the cat. OMG kill me now...he starts reaching under the door, I'm watching this paw and leg come under the door and make a batting motion like "come out come out wherever you are"...then all of a sudden the paw disappears, the cat is slammed into the door by the dog who thinks its play time.
5 minutes are up... "mom!? can I have... (insert object/food/drink)"
*facepalm* oh well... get up and go get DS what he is asking for... dog and cat find something else to do, try to get 5 minutes again... and it starts all over again!
I just want 5 minutes, 5 minutes with no interruptions, no screaming, no animals, no nothing...
