Yelling @ My Son

By M Davies   /     Feb 22, 2009  /     Mommyhood  /     1 Comment

Before I left for work the other morning I needed to take a quick pee…I usually lock the doors when I’m in the bathroom because my son is a peeping Tom.  I figured I’d be able to get in and out of the bathroom quick enough that he wouldn’t have a chance to notice I was missing from the room. 


I was in mid pee when he opened the door…ALL THE WAY.  I then yelled at him to get out and close the door.

When I came out of the bathroom it was time to get coats and shoes on, the car was already warming up outside.  I used the few minutes to lecture him about how its not nice to barge into the bathroom when someone is already in there…..

"OWEN."  I said  "You do not go into the bathroom when Mommy is in the bathroom.  You do not go into the bathroom when Daddy is in the bathroom.  You do not go into the bathroom when Gabby is in the bathroom.  Do you understand?" 

"Yes" he says in his usual quiet shy voice with a patheic puppy dog look on his face.

From the peanut gallery across the room, Gabby decides to throw in her two cents.  "YEAH AND YOU CAN’T GO OUTSIDE WHEN TRUMPY IS GOING POTTY EITHER!" 

It was just so random and she was so serious when she said it, I cracked up.  I told her that I don’t think the dog will mind if someone is watching him go to the bathroom.
