Bathroom Lament

Why is it when men "hide out" in the bathroom it's okay, but when a mom actually has to use it legitimately kids pound on the door needing an immediate audience from mom??!! It's the only room in my house with a lock, and still I can't be in there for more than a minute without my kid (or dog) NEEDING ME?!!

 If you figure it out, let me know. Nobody, not my 10yo, 11yo, OR HUSBAND, lets me even CLOSE the door most of the time, much less LOCK it, since one of them is always on my heels wanting/needing something.

You get a minute?  You're lucky.  *L*  My son seems to think I need a chaperone to go to the bathroom despite the fact I've been doing it on my own for over 30 yrs.  Our door doesn't latch closed and the lock doesn't work, so I can't even lock the door for privacy.

When my daughter was about 3 years old, I sat down on the toilet and asked her if I could have some privacy.

"Ok," she said, "I'll grab my private seat."

She pulled up as stool and sat down.

 LMAO!!   But mom's have been asking themselves this same question since Ozzie and Harriet got married.

Quoting fraujones:

LOL - when I was babysitting I decided it was easier to just leave the bathroom door open
