This was a solemn rule - one so sacred that my (step) dad was very clear to say that being in the bathroom was like being in church - no talking!
It became a long standing joke in our family, and for the longest time, I had a cross on our bathroom door.
That confused a lot of people, but it was a great conversation piece.
The cross is now down, but it still a fun memory.
As a mommy now, I totally get it.
I'm not a "potty reader" like hubby.
I don't have that luxury. I do what I need to do & get out.
The longest I'm in the bathroom is to take a shower & that usually lasts about 10 minutes, but with out fail, the kids are knocking on the door - mom, mom, mom, mom, mommmm
WHAT? What could you possibly need, child (or occasionally hubby) that cannot wait until I am out of the bathroom??
Nothing is so important that I need to be bothered when the door is closed and locked and NO, I don't EVER need to take a phone call while I'm in the shower. I don't care who it is!
Perhaps I should put the cross back up & rename the bathroom the House of the Holy Throne. :)
Maybe then I could get a peaceful shower?
I will always honor the tiny chapel in my home formerly known as "water closet". It will be a sacred place of no chatter & if the door is closed, for sure - no talking!
