I'm an Evil Mom

As you know, I am a mom to four boys, so as you can imagine I rarely get a moment to myself. I'm truly evil sometimes.

This afternoon, I had Matthew in his swing. Nick and Jake were at the table doing homework and Alex was playing with a puzzle in the living room. Nature was calling so I went into the bathroom off of my bedroom. No one followed me. This never happens - I generally have one child tailing me at all times. After I washed my hands I realized I was still alone, everyone was actually quiet so I stood in front of the sink - standing there perfectly still enjoying a moment or two of silence ALONE. Then of course Jake and Alex simultaneously realized I was not in there sights so they began their little chant..."Ma?" "Mom?" "Mommy?". And what did I do? I stood there for another moment or two until they walked in and found me hiding from them in the bathroom! And I will admit when I heard them enter my room the thought crossed my mind to extend my moments alone a little longer by hiding in my closet, but I figured I wouldn't have the silence any longer as they bellowed for me through the house so I might as well give myself up to the natives.

Evil mama.

Don't worry-you are not alone. I too have contemplated hiding in my closet on at least one occasion, but you are right-it probably wouldn't work anyway ;)
I've been known not to answer and then feign temporary deafness... The closet is a great idea.... hmmm
