A Letter to My Children

Dear Children, 

There are times in your life that mommy just needs to be alone.

For example, if I go to the bathroom and shut the door, chances are I don’t need assistance for whatever I’m in there for.

If you see mommy in a corner with her back to you and it looks like I’m eating a piece of chocolate, it’s definitely not chocolate. It’s probably broccoli.

If mommy is on the phone, you do not need to state (very loudly) that your brother pooted and it smelled really bad.

If mommy is in the shower, you do not need to assume that it’s a good time to practice your free throws into the toilet bowl.

Yet despite all the times I need to be by myself, there’s no other place I’d rather be than with you.

Except when I’m in the bathroom.

I really need to remember to lock that door…..
