Query

Why has it taken me over nine years to figure out that if I claim I am pooping, I can get five minutes to myself?

I don't know, but this totally doesn't work for me. Although by the time all my kids are Ross and Lars age, I had better!

So I say, rock it sister, if you can.

Oh and on a really bad parenting day, you can just claim a stomach illness. :)

oh, girl, this gives me hope as i, too, will be the lone girl in a house full of boys.

I so wish I could claim that worked in my house....

As a side note, I'm thrilled to have found this blog. It's nice to know I'm not alone.

It never works for me. No one in this house is put off by pooping, not even the dog and often the entire population of our home ends up in my bathroom when I'm answering Nature's call on The Big White Phone.

What happened to my LIFE???

Incidentally, congratulations to you on finding the ticket to privacy if only for 4 minutes. If you deprive yourself of fiber you could probably get more time in.
