open door

Apparently, we have an open door policy here at our house.
I wish I were referring to the warm hospitality, drop-in-any-time front door kind of open door.
Nope.
I'm talking about the bathroom.
Whenever that door is closed, it is an invitation for little Miss 2-year-old to barge right on in.
I cannot remember the last time I showered in peace.
As soon as that water goes on, she bursts through the door.
She'll come in to talk to me, to sing to me, to whine or cry to me.
It's not limited to shower time, either....unfortunately!!
Something about that door being closed is more than she can handle.
Somehow, I'm unavailable to her and she can't stand it.
So, why not lock it, you ask?
Well, we've only got one bathroom in the home.
We also have a 2 year old who is SLOWLY potty training.
You never know what may happen if she doesn't have access.
So, as I'm about to leave the computer to go shower,
I'm hoping, but not expecting, a peaceful shower experience.
One day I'll miss these days.
Right?

What a cutie she is!! I
I find that I'm forever asking myself, "I'm gonna miss this, right?" And.. I think we are going to smile as we remember these crazy preschoolers of ours. It's going to go fast!

Oy. We have a similar issue here. I think once you become pregnant, all sorts of privacy rights are given up.
