Ask any parent with a toddler about privacy and they’ll be the first to tell you that you can kiss that good-bye… Yep, whether we like it or not, our kids just don’t seem to get why we need to be alone when we’re having a bath or shower, or simply doing our business on the toilet.
A funny TikTok bathroom video posted by one frustrated dad recently has gone viral because it describes what it’s like living with a toddler 24/7 down to a tee – and it’s hilarious because it’s exactly how it is!
In the video posted by @rob_chewie, we see a close up of a closed bathroom door. Next you can see two little finger appearing with a little voice on the other side of the door asking dad, “Can you see my fingers?”
The dad responds, “Yes I can.”
Next the boy asks whether he can see both his hands and fingers? It’s as if this is a magic trick he’s playing with his dad.
Again, dad responds, “Yes, I can…bye-bye.” You have to laugh at this point because you can hear from dad’s tone that he’s now getting rather agitated and just wants to be left in peace.
Of course, the toddler, thinks this is a great game to play with dad, but can’t understand why his dad keeps saying “Bye bye.”
Next you see a curious little toddler opening the door with the naughtiest grin. “What are you doing?”, he asks – and oh boy, don’t we know that line!
The dad yells at him to “close the door”. He pretends to, but on second thoughts, opens it again…we reckon he’s doing it to test whether dad’s really serious. You know the drill…
Of course, this is when dad really loses his cool…and we can’t stop laughing. We’re betting his little one ran for cover. Fast!
