The Bathroom Door Letter

Our MOPS Speaker this week shared this, and I thought anyone can relate!! How many times have you wanted to say this...

Please do not stand here and talk, whine or ask questions.

Wait until I get out.

Yes, it is locked. I want it that way. It is not broken, and I am not trapped.

I know I have left it unlocked and even open at times, since you were born, because I was afraid some horrible tragedy might occur while I was in there, but it’s been 8 years and I want some PRIVACY.

Do not ask me how long I will be. I will come out when I am done.

Do not bring the phone to the bathroom door.

Do not go running back to the phone yelling “She’s in the BATHROOM!”

Do not begin to fight as soon as I go in.

Do not stick your little fingers under the door and wiggle them. This was funny when you were two.

Do not slide pennies, LEGOs, or notes under the door. Even when you were two this got a little tiresome.

If you have followed me down the hall talking, and are still talking as you face this closed door, please turn around, walk away, and wait for me in another room. I will be glad to listen to you when I am done.

And yes, I still love you.

Mom

I LOVE IT!!!!!! That was just too funny! I also "escape" to the bathroom sometimes and my girls know the word "privacy" now :)
