I want to go to the bathroom BY MYSELF!

If you are a mom, you have probably thought this.  I am thinking it today.  I would like for the most private activity to be, oh, I don't know, PRIVATE!

I have brought this upon myself.  When Ella was potty training, I would take her into the bathroom with me all the time so that she got used to the idea.  Now, if I make the kids leave, one cries the whole time, and the other yells questions at me through the door.  Not exactly a relaxing environment.

I have written a little poem in order to air my frustration.

Potty Mouth
by Beth Lewis

I'd like to go potty alone.
And sit on my porcelain throne.
Yet when I get the need,
my kids, with great speed,
come into my privacy zone.
When nature calls me to the loo
My children take that as a cue
to follow me in.
It gets under my skin!
I'm not really sure what to do.
When I have to go to the john
why must a party go on?
I would like to be
Alone - just me!
Without either one of my spawn.


  1. I am thinking of printing this and hanging it on my wall in our loo. Better yet, if you could print one out and mail it to me sighed, than I can make tons o money when you are famous. This is sure to be a classic!

  2. I'm with Lydia, may I have a signed copy too! Ha ha!
