Needing a Bathroom Escort

If you’re here expecting something seedy,  get your mind out of the gutter. 

I thought I would share a relatively new behavior that Emmett is presenting with.  Emmett will no longer use the bathroom without someone escorting him.  He was doing very well for a long time.  Now all of a sudden he won’t go to the bathroom alone. 

Not really a problem but more of an annoyance.  Not sure if this is just a phase but I’m really hoping it is.

Is this a common problem? Does anyone else deal with this?

    My son (now 20) requires an escort – for many reasons. I take either one of two approaches: Holler into the bathroom: anyone in here? if not, walk in. If someone walks in while we’re in there I tell them it’s ok, I’m a mother (ah, sainted motherhood!). In high traffic areas where there’s no break in the traffic I’ll get a Y chromosome carrier to go in and clear the head for me (a cop is advised, aspecially in the evening on weekends.)

    It is. My daughter has gone through several phases in which she suddenly “couldn’t” do things she’d always done on her own. Don’t worry, it will pass.
