This is a relatively new phenomenon, and it deserves some sort of acknowledgement here on the ol' blog. The conversation goes like this:
Me: (standing in the bathroom doorway): Hey, guys, I'm gonna take a shower.
Them: (scattered around the downstairs): Okay! Great! Okay!
Me: I'll be out in ten minutes.
Me: I'm gonna leave the door open. If you need something, just come in.
Them: Okay, Mom!
Me: What is the one thing that you shouldn't do no matter what?
Them: Answer the front door.
Me: You got that? Do not answer the door no matter what.
Them: Of course not!
Me: Okay, then. No answering the door. Because you did that one time when Uncle E. came over.
Them: We were only four then.
Me: I know, it's just...
Them: Will you just take a shower now?
Me: Oh. Okay.
So this post is dedicated to my daughters, who do not open the front door no matter what.
