All moms need this sign on the bathroom door

Many parents know that privacy pretty much goes out the window when you have kids. Especially with little ones. You can’t pee, poop, shower, or pluck a chin hair without being interrupted. Eventually, you’ll have to set some boundaries, dammit. If you need inspiration, one mom has the perfect signage for you.

Behold the best bathroom sign ever made. It was posted on Practical Parenting’s Facebook page and judging by the number of times it was shared (over 11,000), we’re going to go out on a limb and say it resonated. Hard.

The sign says: If mom is in the bathroom you are NOT allowed to …

#1 Knock, unless the house is on fire or someone is bleeding and/or dead.

Seriously, why do kids knock on a bathroom door while we’re taking a pee or poo? Us moms really DGAF that you want to be held while we’re literally mid-dump. We just don’t. We don’t give one shit (pun intended) that you need juice right this damn second. We sure as hell don’t want to hear you drone on about Pokemon while we take the longest, most relieving pee ever. Unless you’re bleeding or dying- BYE bae.

#2 Scream questions at me if the shower is running! Hot Tip! I CAN’T HEAR YOU!

Showers are our sanity. They’re like a spa day condensed into seven glorious minutes. It’s sad that life has come to this, we know. So please R-E-S-P-E-C-T and go away for seven minutes, that’s all we’re asking.

#3 Wait for me within inches of the door and then yell at me when you get slammed in the face like it’s my fault.

This mama is savage AF. Back up, baby cakes. Unless you want a black eye from the doorknob.

#4 Slip me notes of any kind, especially the ones with those check boxes. Ask yourself this question before knocking … Can I survive the next two minutes without mom? *Check boxes with ‘yes’ and ‘no’

We’re just going to answer that one – YES. You’re fine. Stop slipping your school artwork through the crack of the door. Don’t slip your fingers under the door. You could be slipping us money underneath the door and we’d still lose our shit.

The original poster is unknown, but whoever you are badass mama, we feel you. Fist bumps from all of us who just want to sit atop the porcelain throne in peace.
