The boys and I went to Tae Kwon Do. As much as it pains me to admit this (don’t anyone dare tell Mad Dog), the process is getting easier. To be clear, it’s easier and NOT easy. I have a feeling easy is a long way off if it ever even appears.
I had the boys dressed and was about to put their belts on them when Full Speed announces he needs to use the bathroom. In the past he has locked himself along with a huge tizzy in the bathroom. To counteract this horror, I subsequently instructed him to never, ever, ever (got it?) lock the door. After this instruction the next time he needs to go, I come to find him using the toilet with the door completely wide open. Everyone and their brother has a full view of this (the bathrooms are right off the main floor). So technically the door was unlocked, I just hadn’t told him to CLOSE the door while leaving it unlocked.
So, this time around when he makes his bathroom proclamation I tell him leave the door unlocked AND to close it. With Frack, I’m realizing detailed specifics are the only way to go. Such is the learning curve of motherhood.
