OK, this is one of my biggest ones. Something that makes me want to SCREAM loudly like a lunatic.
WHY, oh WHY, when you are in the bathroom, do the kids feel the need to wiggle the door knob as they talk to you!??!?! ARG!!!
First of all, I have just recently been able to shut the door again, after years of needing it open and having NO privacy. The kids panic. People with small children know exactly what I am talking about.
So after years of putting in my time of peeing and showering for the entire house to see, now I get a break. I get to have a closed door. I almost forgot what it is like and sometimes still forget to shut it, out of habit. This greatly distrubs my older children, so for their sake, I try to remember to shut it.
Their father is home, but for some reason, suddenly when I shut the door to the bathroom, they feel the need to come talk to me. Not only can I hardly hear them through the door, but as they talk, they stand there hanging onto the doorknob!??! I think they are doing some manner of acrobatics or something, from the sounds of things. Sound like the thing will be ripped out of the door sometimes.
WHY!?!?!? ESPECIALLY if their father is home. WHY DO THEY FEEL THE NEED TO COME TO ME ALL THE TIME!??!?!
And why can they not just stand there and talk?? I don't understand that.
For some reason it drives me bonkers.
Have a great day!
