What It’s Like Being A Parent: Part Two

Posted by , under EXTERNAL USE ONLY


Want to know what it's like being a parent without privacy? It's sort of like this...

So, we covered what it’s like being a parent and having to answer UMPTEENFAFILLION questions, last time. But this time, let’s talk about privacy.

Privacy, as you knew it parents and non-parents, becomes extinct when you have children. Or at least the version of it that used to be employed. There is no such thing as “I” when you have kids. There is only “we” and a faint version of “me” left over.

So, when you decide to go to the bathroom, it’s basically this…

Any questions? Go ahead and tell me that you have total privacy. I will dismantle your idea about your personal space in seconds. You are living with ravenous beasts and they will exploit the flaws in your cage.

If you get asked what it’s like to be a parent, I suggest sharing this post to give them a peek into the parenting world. Or just dump a bag of angry badgers on them.

    What’s privacy again?
    Having a shy bladder, it took me a while get use to my 5 yo staring at me when taking a wizz. Now it’s unbearable when my 3 yo daughter does the same thing…. go away kid!

    We give our 15 month old a big clap & cheer when he pees on the toilet. So he does the same for us. It does wonders for your self esteem, I tell you… excited applause several times a day, just for peeing.

    Now I am pregnant again, yesterday I got a standing ovation for puking. It would have been funny if I wasn’t feeling so revolting.
