Joshua isn’t terrified of loud noises, but he doesn’t really enjoy them. I always warn him before I turn on our blender or my hair dryer so he doesn’t get startled.
I was in the shower tonight when Joshua came barging into the bathroom.
Joshua: Are you taking a shower?
Joshua: Mommy, would you like some privacy? [It kills me that he asks me that after barging in!]
Me: Haha, oh yes I would!
Joshua: blah blah blah blah blah…he goes on to ask me 20 questions about if I could come out and play with him, am I done yet, if he can go pee on the potty, if Savanna is going to take a shower, if he is getting a bath or a shower…
Joshua: Mommy, are you going to dry your hair?
Joshua: Is it going to be loud?
Me: The hair dryer? Yes, a little bit.
Joshua: Bye-bye, Mommy!
I think from now on, every time I go to the bathroom I am going to turn on the hair dryer. Maybe that’ll buy me some privacy.
