Who's The Boss?

"Kids are definitely the boss of you. Anyone who will barge into the room while you are on the commode is the boss of you. And when you explain to them that you're on the commode and that they should leave but they don't? That's a high-level boss."

-Bossypants author Tina Fey

Oh Tina,

So very very true.

And funny.

And sad.....

because I just realized I have 3 high-level bosses.


  1. There's an argument for only having one child. I don't even bother to close the bathroom door anymore since it never stays closed anyway.

  2. Haha, so true!! At least I only have one boss!! LOL Matthew has finally learned though that when I am in the toilet, or especially in the shower and I can't just jump on what he needs/wants. He still comes in but now he says "Mommy, when you're done..."

  3. I was just discussing this with some friends of mine. I've taken to locking my bedroom door, then the bathroom door to buy me a little bit of time. It doesn't take long for the 5 year old to get them both unlocked and come barging in to ask the same ole question "are you pooping or going pee?". Followed by 3 little boys banging on the door... (sigh)

  4. Loved all the recent posts (I was behind). Especially liked little Owen defending his home and tattling on Sweet Pea! Love you.
