Where did mommy go?
Psst - it's me - I'm hiding...in the bathroom. Don't roll your eyes at me, if you are a stay at home mom, I will bet my life savings (which is NOT much actually) that you have a hiding place too!
Every SAHM craves conversation with someone. And boy howdy do we get it! What's that? Where's that go? Why did you do that? What are you doing now? Can I do it? Look at this. Watch me. Mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy. And my "favorite" oops! And then when we get the chance to talk to an adult (our endearing honey bunny), we don't even have the energy! Working parent - how did your day go sweetheart? Home bound parent - lifts head up off the kitchen table and grunts, places head back down.
To insure more energy and a better balanced mood when my hubby arrives, I take "mini-breaks" in the bathroom. Mommies all over the world "potty" a lot. I "potty" to have a minute to myself when I have cranky kids - reminding myself that I do LOVE them even when I don't LIKE them at that moment in time. I "potty" when there is only one cookie left, I am PMSing and really don't feel like sharing! I figured I shared food with you for 9 months - this cookie is mine kid! I "potty" to make important phone calls. Our transplant coordinator always wonders why I echo on the phone.... ;)
I always thought my mother's bladder was the size of a peanut when I was little. Now I get it - now I GET IT! Back in 2 minutes :)
