Yes, you read that right. I said Pee Interrupted. This was an answer to a question that was asked to me. The question was this:
As a parent, what is one thing that you can do now that you were unable to do before ?
My answer was Pee Interrupted. I can not remember the last time I sat on the toilet and someone did not open the door. And yes, I do have locks on my bathroom door, but, having little kids, it, at times is easier to just keep that door unlocked rather than trying to pee and open that locked door at the same time (I tried my friends, I tried)
BC (before children) the only person that I allowed into the bathroom while I was sitting on the pot was my friend Vanessa. But even then as soon as she came in, I couldn’t finish doing my duty. But now with kids, well nothing is sacred. The kids don’t care that I have rolls of chub. Telling me about the newest Lego toy is more important that realizing that I am in the middle of getting dressed, and I am having a losing fight with my bra.
But it’s wonderful. I would never trade the hustle and bustle of my crazy house for some quiet time in the bathroom. To be honest, I’m not sure IF I COULD pee in total silence. I really do not mind the running around and the shrill screaming of 3 kids under the age of 6. I get nervous when I am able to sleep past 7 am. When that happens, I wake with a start and run into their rooms to make sure they are actually still breathing and have not killed each other in their sleep. So even though I now can pee interrupted, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
