What is it with kids and the bathroom?!
ME: Do you need the toilet?
ME: Ok, I, just going to the toilet.
CHILD: I come with you!
I get girlcode and how when you are on a night out its ok to share a cubicle but just dont understand why my kids feel the need to accompany me to the loo every time I need to go!
If they arent in with me they are outside the door knocking to get in!
Dont get me started on having a bath by myself! I would love to be one of those people (like me when I was 18 and childfree) who lies in the bath for ages, topping up the hot water and reading a book in peace….me now, dodging the water pistols, trying to breathe through a mountain of bubbles and aiming not to sit on the copious amounts of toys that have also gathered to watch me bathe!
Since we moved though we have an ensuite which means that although there isnt much chance of me getting a bath in peace I can get a silent shower! YAY! I can lock the door and plead ignorance to the knocking because ‘i couldnt hear you over the shower…water in my ears…’ I get to put the kids to be on a night and can tiptoe off to the loo in peace, they would hear me go to the main loo but they don’t hear me sneak into my toilet! Who would have thought there would be so much joy in something so simple! lol
The main bathroom is the one the kids all use and is filled with toys, bubble baths of every colour, shape and size bottle, bath toys that stick to the tiles and hooded unicorn towels. Toothpaste usually smeared round the sink and loo rolls on the floor! They have a bidet in there which has never been used as a bidet – its the salon basin where the dolls get their hairs washed! lol
In contrast our shower room has fluffy towels, co ordinating bottles of lotions and a pretty plant on the windowsill, toothpaste IN THE TUBE and loo rolls on a holder. We also have a mirror cabinet which I would love to replace with this illuminated one from Pebble Grey – how cool does that look, it would be like being a Hollywood starlet in my own bathroom!
When did you last go to the bathroom by yourself? Do you long for a bath alone?
