A home is your castle and the bathroom is your sanctuary, especially when you have kids.  The thought of locking yourself in a room where a mandatory call of nature results in a few precious moments of alone time.  Well, that is unless you have kids who see a closed bathroom door as too tempting to leave alone.  One mom had enough of being bothered in the bathroom and created a straightforward guideline for her kids to follow.  It reads:


If mom is in the bathroom, you are not allowed to

#1-Knock, unless the house is on fire or someone is bleeding and/or dead.

#2-Scream questions at me if the shower is running! Hot tip! I can’t hear you!

#3-Wait for me within inches of the door and then yell at me when you get slammed in the face like it’s my fault

#4-Slip me notes of any kind, especially the ones with those check boxes. Ask yourself this question before knocking: Can I survive the next two minutes with mom? With check boxes YES and NO.

The bathroom rules have been shared over 13,000 times on social media, perhaps to be adapted for their own homes!
