Have you ever locked the bathroom door with your kids on the other side, just so you could have a moment to pee in peace?
It doesn’t really work, does it? Babies tend to cry and sometimes knock sadly on the door … While toddlers have their own versions of persuasive objection.
Anneliese said all of these this morning while I took 90 seconds to use the toilet without small people climbing on me.
- Mom, I need to visit you.
- I lost you, Mom.
- It’s stuck… It’s locked. Help?
- I need to belong to you.
- …I miss you.
What does your toddler say while you’re using the bathroom in solitude?
