It's seriously like there's a revolution going on outside of the door with all of the door banging and baby hootin' and hollarin'.
So these are some things I've tried to distract him while I do my thang on the throne:
- Laid out his toys to play with right in front of the door so he's close to me but occupied and not in the bathroom with me;
- Put him in the living room, turn on the Baby Einstein, and plug him with his morning bottle;
- Opened the drawers in the closet (it's pretty much a walk-in) and let him sift through his clothes;
- Sometimes he's still asleep when I get up so I just pray and chant (in my head) that he won't wake up.
Putting him in the other room with a bottle seems to work the best but I don't like that I can't hear him so most of the time I just let him bang on the door and I just think about the day he will no longer have separation anxiety.
I won't get into when I have to do the #2 (POOP) but I'm always surprised that he hasn't broken down the door yet when I take so long on the john.
But seriously Bambino? You can't at least give mama 30 seconds (sometimes 5 minutes for those crappy moments) to herself?
