It’s either incredibly Charles County “country “or just straight Prince George’s (PG) County “throwback”, that I’m currently writing this blog while on my porch, in my hot pink bra, serving as a cow to the “milk monster”, while watching the 2 middle (naked) littles running around playing in the baby pool. Either way #naynaydontcare!
The awesome part about living where I live is that there is privacy…. Well, sort of!
If you are on the outside of the house you experience that privacy, but if you are in it, sorry about ya luck!
A good friend of mine asked me to write a blog post about privacy this week, and I gladly accepted the challenge. I have a lot of TMI stories about things that these kiddos have done to “invade my space” since I have had the pleasure of being their momma, but some are too racy for this blog. LOL.
Privacy… Ohhhh privacy!!! Do I even remember how to spell thee?? I don’t remember how to have you and sometimes miss you so!
If you are reading this post, chances are you have children, or children at some point have been in your life. You know all too well the feeling of cold ass feet kicking you in the ribs at 1 am after an invasion of little people to your bed, the sound of continuous knocking at any closed door you try to hide behind or the vision of little fingers peering from under a closed door while you try to pee by yourself.
Little person H and little person P both are “my mini Renee’s” so it’s hard to get upset when they totally do something I would do, or act like they know a whole lot more than they do. I have been known to sit outside the door and speak to my Mom as she’s “going potty”…. #onlychildproblems
They must have gotten it from their momma because they do the same damn thing to me!! How about having a child ..or 3 in the bathroom EVERY TIME you go? For some reason my 4-year-old finds it necessary to ” show me” how to wipe my butt and will stand behind the toilet as I go!! Ughhhhhhhhhh!!!! It’s pretty funny when you decide to shower for 30 minutes at a firehouse 2 times a week because you know it will be the only time you don’t have a child poking, prodding or inspecting your “private parts” and asking a gazillion questions .Smh
I often tell people I will take important calls in my closet with the door closed and lights off. Sometimes if I’ve ” treated myself” to an ice cream, piece of candy or a new nail polish, I’ll hide in the bathroom to enjoy 30 seconds by myself. People always laugh, and I’m pretty sure they think I’m joking… But I’m not!
Like everyone, sometimes you just need a little space, have something to yourself and want to enjoy a little silence. I used to feel guilty for wanting any of that, but now with 937268 kids, animals and visitors in our home I have realized it’s much-needed. I’m so lucky to have someone who not only encourages me to have some space but will plan some things for me to do, and sometimes even take the kids so I can have some “mommy time”.
I’ll have to cut this short because little #2 (the one currently wearing snow boots on a 75 degree day) is chasing the dog with a tree branch.
I hope you enjoyed the presentation of mom problem #798…… Privacy 🙂 xoxo
