My Dignity

I discovered something today. Something I never knew I had. Once I found it, I wasn't even sure if I would use it.

I thought what better place for a confession than my blog, right? Please don't judge me when I tell you that today, for the first time, I used the LOCK on my bathroom door.

It was kind of freeing, but scary at the same time.

The baby was asleep. The big kids were occupied downstairs. I figured it was a way to put the ball in my court. If they needed me, they could come and knock. Perhaps, at worst, they would try and rattle to door knob. I highly doubted they would charge the door.

No matter what though, they could not come IN to the bathroom.

How dignifying! A bathing experience where my children didn't see me dripping wet AND nude.

I think I'll try this again tomorrow...

hmm...good idea. My oldest is only four so she would probably freek out...But when my husband is home and the kids slip by him to visit me in the bathroom, they do find it locked. I figure he can deal with them then!
