TMI alert! TMI alert! TMI alert! TMI alert!

You’ve been warned.

Of all the things I never anticipated about motherhood, this most recent phenomena is something that I never, in my wildest dreams, considered might be a problem.

I want to finish going to the bathroom.

Seriously. I live in a small one-bath condo and have a daughter who is well potty trained, but still very occassionally has accidents. Lately, the past three weeks or so, it seems that every time I sit down to go to the bathroom — NOT peeing, you understand — The Child needs to use the potty. So I need to hurry up and finish. Or stop in the middle.

The Husband has occassionally interrupted, too.

Finally, this weekend, I sent the Child and the Husband to the basement to do laundry so I could get five necessary minutes. Alone. To finish! And the fucking cat, the goddamned fucking cat, starts meowing at me and scratching at my bare legs.

I swear to god, I’m tempted to get a babysitter some days.

    my girls are 19, 16 and 8. i STILL have a rule: when i’m in the bathroom and the door is shut, leave me alone! for AT LEAST 10 years of my life i was interrupted every friggin time i went in…
    now, i relish being alone, even if all i’m doing is putting on mascara.

    now, when i’m showering, its a free-for-all. EVERYONE wants to shower with mom…
