The Bathroom Door is Closed. Please do not stand here and talk, whine, or ask
questions. Wait until I get out.
Yes, it is locked. I want it that way. It is not broken. I am not trapped. I
know I have left it unlocked, and even open at times, since you were born,
because I was afraid some horrible tragedy might occur while I was in here, but
it's been 10 years and I want some PRIVACY.
Do not ask me how long I will be. I will come out when I am done.
Do not bring the phone to the bathroom door.
Do not go running back to the phone yelling, "She's in the BATHROOM!
Do not begin to fight as soon as I go in.
Do not stick your little fingers under the door and wiggle them. This was
funny when you were two, but not now.
Do not slide pennies, Lego's, or notes under the door. Even when you were two
this got a little tiresome.
If you have followed me down the hall talking, and are still talking as you
face this closed door, please turn around, walk away, and wait for me in another
room. I will be glad to listen to you when I am done.
And yes, I still love you.
