Potty time!

For mom, or dad or any other person brave enough to enter our little sliver of space. Every single time I try to enter the washroom (for typical washroom duties or otherwise) my child has a freakin' meltdown. I've tried ignoring, cajoling, being firm, and finally I clued in and got sneaky. I entertain my child with something he would not normally get the chance to do/use. Examples-keys, real telephone, lazy cat. I run in and do whatever I gotta do when he can't see me. This keeps him calm for at least 10 minutes. I, shamefully, have been known to sneak out and hide in another room, enjoying his quiet occupation.

Guess where I wrote this from, sitting on the toilet that's right! Now don't be gross or assume I'm raunchy. I snuck in to check email (since the laptop has become WAY too interesting).

Bad mommy, bad.

You're not bad, you're human! We all deserve a little privacy now and then.

My husband often takes his laptop to the potty. He does his best work in there.

privacy? whats that?

our trick? our son has a potty right next to the big potty. he doesnt actually USE it yet (dangit!), but he does sit on it whenever we go. he even has potty related reading material right next to his potty for his "reading" pleasure. imo, its a little weird to use the bathroom with your kid's head right by your bum, but it works! bonus, he's very comfortable on his potty...

Yeah, we are with hollystar at our house. There is no such thing as privacy for us anymore, unless you want to endure howls and pounding on the other side of the door the whole time.
