Yesterday afternoon it started snowing. Not a big deal, I do live in New England, but it is still snowing. School was canceled which is a pretty big deal, Cambridge hardly ever cancels school. Work was also deemed optional by the powers that be since 3 of our 3 offices were “adversely affected” by the storm. Woot! I’ll take a snow day, even if it means snow. Boo!
I keep meaning to tell you about my Bathroom Stalker but never seem to remember. He just refreshed my memory though. Whenever I go in the bathroom, he races to come watch. When he was little it wasn’t a big deal but he’s getting to be a big boy now and Mommy really could use some alone time once in a while, even if it’s only when I’m in our tiny bathroom. So, I’ve begun locking the door.
This development makes my little stalker furious. When confronted by a locked door he starts knocking politely. He gradually ramps up the knocking until it’s noticeably less than polite. He will then grab the door handle and shake the door until I am afraid he’ll knock it right off the hinges. I will tell him that he needs to wait a minute, I’m almost done (I am such a liar) and he will then lay down on the floor in the hallway so he can stare at my toes. He’s not even the slightest bit embarrassed when I catch him laying their either. He’ll just smile, wave and say “Hi!”
