     I wish I could take credit for this one too, but it was sent in an e-mail several months ago.


     I actually DID hang this one outside the bathroom door.  Did it help?  Not one bit.  The two that could read would collapse in a fit of giggles outside the door, and the two that couldn’t would stand there and cry.




The Bathroom Door is Closed.
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, 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 10 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.

    Oh so funny! My kids are now too old for this, but I still get the phone at the bathroom and I’m like “What are you thinking?” Do not tell them I am in the bathroom!

    Now it is the cat that will scratch at the door and put her paws under the door when I am in there…

    I loved this! Unfortunately no one would read it at my house they would continue to barge in. Even the dog feels the need to be in the bathroom when I am in there. Sheesh people are needy sometimes.

    Whenever I get into the tub the dog sits there on her haunches staring at me, its almost like she is asking if she can come and play in the bubbles or something. Its weird because when I go to give her a bath she hides and won’t come, but run the bath with bubbles and she is so there.
