The Last Sanctuary

The bathroom is basically the last sanctuary I have in my house.  It's the one place I can go where no one bothers me.  I can tell Andy, "Keep an eye on the baby, I need to run to the bathroom" and just like that I'm guaranteed at least 7 minutes of freedom.  Doesn't matter if I'm just taking a quick pee or if I really do need to be in there for a while.  I get a few minutes where no one needs me.  I don't have to do anything for anyone.  There's no house work to be done.  And laundry never finagles its way into the bathroom.

It's glorious.  I can read an article in a magazine, text message, check facebook from my phone.  I can just sit and be quiet...be still.  I swear it's like a little oasis.

Unfortunately this safe haven is only available when someone else is in the house besides Isabella and I because if it's just us she's either in there trying to wipe me or I have to go in, pee like a mad woman and get out before she sets the house on fire or steals the car.

Jealous. I rarely get to do anything in the bathroom alone.

Nice! When I entered mommyhood, I just learned that taking a bath was such a luxury for moms.
