Hope you all had a great New Year! Thanks for all of the New Years greetings. I've been spending time with my kids since they've been out of school, so it's a little tough for me to be online blogging. I've got another crazy week, then things should get back to normal.
Why is it that a mom can't even go to the bathroom in peace? All I need is five minutes. Do I get it? No. The minute I go in, there's a kid shouting at me from the other side: "Mama, can you do this?" or "Mama, I need this..." Can't they wait until I'm done?
So today, when my son was shouting at me from the other side, I decided to ignore him. I couldn't hear a word he was saying, which was fine with me. (The fan has a great way of drowning out what's happening on the other side.)
When I tried to get out, I gave the door a push. But it wouldn't budge. What the heck? I thought. I pushed again and managed to squeeze my way out. What do you think I saw on the other side? A bath mat shoved against the door, and piles of towels and toiletries blocking my way.
"Bubba!" I yelled.
He came in looking all innocent.
"What's this?" I asked.
"A booby trap. I told you about it when you were in there. You should've listened!"
