Mommy Moment #475 & #476

#475- Yesterday I was trying to have a few moments to myself in the bathroom when the following incident took place.

Essie, "MOMMY, Where are you?"
Mommy, "Downstairs."
*little footsteps bang down the stair*
Essie, "Mommy, what are you doing?"
"I'm going potty, honey."
Essie, "I'm hungry, mama."
"ok, honey, when mommy is done going potty, I will make lunch."
Essie, "But mommy, I'm hungryyyyyyyy."
Mommy, "I know, honey, but mommy is going potty right now. As soon as I'm done, I'll make lunch."
Essie *while opening the bathroom door*, "But mommy, I'm bery (very) hungry!!"
"ok, honey, PLEASE shut the door. I'm almost done." *Essie sulks away from door.*
Before Essie is halfway up the steps, I hear another set of foorsteps coming down the steps.

Chloe, "MOMMY, where are you?"
"Bathroom, honey."
Chloe *while cracking the bathroom door*, "What ya doing mommy?"
"Going potty. Please shut the door and give mommy some privacy."
Chloe, "you goin' potty?"
"Yes, Honey, please shut the door!"
Chloe, "ok, mommy." *Chloe sulks away.*
No more than 2 seconds later I hear another scratch at the door. At this point, Mommy is exasperated and gives up on having a few moment of peace in the bathroom. I open the bathroom door in utter frustration to see our dog, Caesar, standing there. Are you kidding me? Even the dog won't let me pee in peace.

Moment #476
Today, Essie relays the above story about mommy being in the bathroom to some of my clients.

Amy--that's when you know you're a real parent. NO bathroom privacy! They sound like such fun girls--who clearly have fun parents, too! --Kara C.

Hilarious! I understand!!! When I'm desperate for some privacy I lock the door, but that doesn't provide silence. LOL

So funny, yet sooooo TRUE! I am right there with you, and it really cracks me up when H now says to me "Go out, Mom, I need my privacy!" when he is going.
