Moms Forced to Seek ‘Pee and Quiet’
Moms never seem to catch a break. Ever.
They are forced to seek ‘pee and quiet.’
Let me explain.
I was at a meeting last night with a bunch of women, all moms except me, and while discussing a great idea one mama had, the others were wondering how she came up with it.
She told us, ‘Well…I won’t lie, I was in the bathroom…just thinking…because, well, it’s the only room with a lock on it where the kids might leave me alone for a minute…so I kind of was enjoying the peace and quiet…’
Another mom interrupted, ‘You mean PEE and quiet.’
I cracked up. I may not have kids, but I know that little is sacred when you become a mom.
As a kid, I followed Mama C. around like a shadow. She couldn’t do anything without me either following her, asking her a question, or calling her name.
When she was in the bathroom with the door closed, I at least paused for a second before I bugged her.
The pee and quiet.
I feel for you, moms. (And I’m fully appreciating my pre-kid alone time!)
