I don't have that problem,I chilled out with that,just relax...
I don't think I could go to the bathroom at all if my girlfriend was in there with me. I could definetly take a shower, but that's a whole other story.
As for pets, I throw them out before I start with my business.
It seems only your problem ...
I hope you can manage with it
I think you really should install lock. Not having our own privacy is some kinda.. annoying.. Especially when you're in the toilet..
Good luck.. Or.. Have you installed a lock? Usually every house's door is installed with lock. How's yours?
Eat more protein; they won't dare come near the bathroom during the event... and quite possibly for twenty minutes afterwards.
Wow... I'm stunned (but probably not as much as your family...)
Honestly, though... probably the most difficult thing about having a baby has been the total lack of privacy - not being able to leave him alone for long enough to go to the bathroom by myself.
I'm SO GLAD that stage doesn't last forever. THat the munchkin's already old enough to not kill himself if I take 5 minutes away.
But for all you lock advocates out there... is it really any easier to relax with someone yelling through the door, the cat scratching and the dog barking to come in (which is honestly what happens at my house) They ARE on the OTHER side of the door. But really, it's hardly quiet and pastoral, meditative.
I won't do it. I have to be alone. Its a must.
or go for a vacation or something, away from all this. lol, or take them all on a vacation to the beach, then ditch em to go to the bar by yourself.
Personally I do nat have that type of problem because I usually lock the bathroom and I do not have any cats and my neighbours cat would not even dare approach.I suggest that you do the same.
