Inside the Bathrooms of 9 Moms -- It's Where the Party's At! (PHOTOS)

Are you familiar with the "Mom bathroom"? The bathroom doesn't necessarily come to mind as a place that takes on the various characteristics of parenthood the way a car does (So. Many. Crushed. Goldfish crackers), or your boobs (as in, I could swear there was a time when I didn't need a paint stick to get everything situated in my sports bra …), but if you have kids, I bet you kissed your picture-perfect, ready-for-guests-at-a-moment's-notice bathroom goodbye a long time ago.

Mom bathrooms are indeed a thing, and they can be identified by the following tell-tale signs.

  • The creepy plastic toys checking you out when you're naked.

  • The uninvited party-crasher during your wine-and-bubble-bath time.

  • The extra items in the tub.

    Would you like a nice exfoliating boat with your evening soak? How about a plastic cup? Or, like, fifteen plastic cups?


  • The inability to even get IN the tub.

    Well that's just ducking great.

  • A decided lack of privacy.

    Remember when using the bathroom was a solo activity?

  • This explanation for why the tub's taking so long to drain.

    Well, I guess there are worse places it could've gotten stuck ...

  • A toothbrush holder that looks like this.

    How my kids put away their toothbrushes 99% of the time. (Note that there are, in fact, more containers available to them than just this one.)

  • Walking in to find these shenanigans underway.

    Okay, that's it. We quit. Dads, you know what we REALLY wanted for Mother's Day? OUR VERY OWN BATHROOM THAT NO ONE ELSE IS ALLOWED TO USE.
