When I was first married, I was TERRIFIED — or perhaps mortified is a better word — at the thought of my new husband even being in the same house as me when I did my thing in the bathroom.
But, yo, things change after you have kids, AMIRITE?!?
In fact, they changed so much for Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, that they have an ‘Open Door’ policy.
This doesn’t just go for bedrooms, kitchens, and the like.
They also don’t close the door to their bathroom — even when they are spending that special time on the porcelain chair.
We have no closed doors in our house; that includes the bathroom — It’s just one of those [things] where, for better or for worse, as a family and the kids, [we] have all kind of embodied bodily function as a very standard norm.Mila Kunis
I mean, I completely understand — for the kids. But, I’m not sure, if it were me, that I’d make that rule stick for the adults. LOL!!
I’d never thought that I would be the person that was able to go to the bathroom with the door open.Mila Kunis
So, why in the world would they have a policy that includes keeping the bathroom door ajar?
Well, as most moms can attest to, when you have littles, bathroom privacy does NOT happen. Like, Ever.
It seems like my kids want nothing to do with me — until I close the door to the bathroom.
Then, it’s little fingers, toes, and even eyeballs under the door.
The pets even get in on the game we call “Mommy’s Trying To Go To The Bathroom.” They meow, bark, and sniff at the door, along with the whining from the kiddos.
Mila feels this in her soul. She finally gave up, and just decided that the door would stay open. It just made things easier.
I was like, ‘Oh, forget it. Just keep the door open.’Mila Kunis
So what do you think? Do you think you could ever have an ‘Open Door’ policy in your home?
