I thought it was only me. I should have known better. Yes, I hide in the bathroom. I have since found out others do it too.
This all started when a fellow reader commented on my hard day with "Maybe you can lock yourself in the bathroom for 5 minutes."
You mean, really, it's not just me?
After a fit of laughter I began to think. This must be a common mom trick. Let me tell you a bit more about my technique. Perhaps it could be useful in your life too.
It comes on between 6 and 7pm. I'll look at hubby and say, "I have a stomach ache." I will then proceed to the bathroom, lock the door, and read magazines. No, of course I do not really need to go. What I need is a mommy time out. A time to stare at models in magazines, look at clothes, makeup, and reminisce about the way things used to be (and where some particular body parts used to be too).
I figured the man had to be on to me. I mean really...a stomach ache just about every night?! Then...just the other night while watching t.v. a commercial comes on. It is about Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS. Hubby looks over at me, eyes wide, and exclaims...."Oh, look at this commercial! I think that is what you have. You have a stomach ache every night after dinner!"
Poor, poor man. If he only knew :)
