Don't Look at Me While I am on the Potty

I confess...we have a magazine rack in our bathroom. We subscribe to a few magazines - my favorites being Oprah Magazine, Real Simple and Entertainment Weekly. Here is what the magazine rack looks like on any given day:

Well, during the past couple of weeks, I have noticed that the magazine rack has looked like THIS when I go in the bathroom:

The magazines are turned around!

I asked both Matt and Zack - have you been turning the magazines around? They both replied that they hadn't, nor had they even noticed it. Well, this went on for a couple more days, til I finally asked Dylan...

Mom: Dylan, have you been turning the magazines around in the bathroom?

Dylan: Yes.

Mom: Why are you doing that?

Dylan: That lady (meaning Oprah Winfrey) has sharp eyes.

Mom: She has "sharp" eyes??

Dylan: Yes, she has sharp eyes and big round hair and I don't want her looking at me while I am on the potty.

And there you have it. Mystery solved.

Heather @ Sugar N Spice Mostly Nice said...

I don't think I would like Oprah watching me either. I wouldn't want her to get one of her "ah-ha moments" after looking at the size of my tush!

Happy SITS Day!

Denise said...

Well, at least you know he's not an exhibitionist! The boy's got a point!

Moi said...

hilarious!
Oh Oprah! Give the kid some privacy!

Robin Lynne said...

Congrat's on your SITS spotlight! :)

& I love this! I'd probably do the same thing if we had mag's in the bano.

That reminds me, there's a chain of restaurants (I can't remember which, now) but they have pictures of Elvis in every bathroom stall just staring down at you.. it's so odd! I mean, I love Elvis.. but.. come on :P

Jaden Paige said...

hahaha! That is funny! I can sort of understand it, though... lol!

Sharp Eyes... That's a new one, but I like it!

southernrose said...

Loooove it!

He has a good point...I don't want anyone, with or without sharp eyes, to watch me on the toilet!

Cher said...

Oh that is too funny! I feel the same way!

Amy said...

Oh so funny! Who could blame him?

Kate Karyus Quinn said...

OMG,that is really funny, and I agree with him completely - Oprah does have kind of "sharp eyes".

My New 30 said...

Oh gosh that is too funny - well, I'm sure that they are Photoshopped Sharp Eyes anyways. I never thought of this before but most of my magazines seem to have pictures of food or flowers on the cover, not people! Or maybe I subconsciously put the people covers underneath those?? Most of 'em are usually left opened on the page I stopped reading when I was in the tub last anyway.

Happy SITS Day!!

Barb said...

Happy sits day...
OMG this is hilarious...thanks for the great laugh this morning...
will be back to check the rest of your blog later...gotta get to work now. Have a great day

Carina Gardner said...

Hee, so funny!

jubilee said...

*giggle*

meg said...

That's hilarious!! Little boys are so cute!

Anne said...

That's too funny! Some people I knew from middle school started a band and ended up designing a line of clothing for Kohl's and they were on the cover of the circular. It was in my friend's bathroom while I went in there and I had to turn it upside down - I couldn't have them watching me tinkle! :p

Annikke said...

I don' blame him - I don't want Oprah watching me either! LOL

BlogBaby said...

Happy Sits day!

BlogBaby

Kelly Deneen said...

hehe. I do remember having to take down posters and hiding them under my bed because some teeny-bopper was staring at me all night. ha!

Industrioushead said...

Makes sense to me!

Jamie said...

That's just too cute!

Laura said...

Yeah, that would creep me out too.

Rachel said...

That's so funny! Thanks for the laugh!

the BLAH BLAH BLAHger said...

That lady DOES have sharp eyes. ; )

hellosweetworld said...

Too funny! I think i'd be scared too if Oprah was starting at me like that, especially when i was on the potty!

tammy said...

Well duh! Makes perfect sense...and I am rofl!! ;)

{Katie Lane} said...

That's funny! But there are people on the other side of the mags too?!

Crazy Momma said...

Who can blame him? That is just too funny!!

Karol said...

That's hysterical!!!

Shannon said...

LOL!

I've never given it that much thought... but now, I have to agree! It is a little creepy to have Oprah stare at you whilst you do your business.

Lida said...

LOL, True I don´t want Oprah watching me in the potty either!

Bethany said...

Oh my gosh, that's hysterical!! Just stopping by to say hello from SITS!

Kasey said...

Stopping by from SITS. That is funny and he does have a point. My pug pup thinks she needs to go into the bathroom with every that goes in there. Don't know if she thinks we need moral support or what, but I can relate to the eyes looking at you...lol

The Mom said...

Congrat's on your SITS day! That's a totally funny story. I think I'm with him on that ... I wouldn't want anyone watching me on the toilet! :)

Mandy said...

That's hilarious! I could see my daughter doing the same thing, she is very particular about her bathroom time.

Kimmy said...

LOL! That's funny! I actually used to get weirded out by the pictures of my parent's on the wall outside the bathroom when I went potty. Yes, the door is opened...lol! Weird how we think.

Jamie said...

Hahaha, that is too funny! I've actually turned around a magazine or two myself (sshhh don't tell anyone). Sometimes there is just someone on the cover you don't need seeing your business.

StampinMom :-)

Alex the Girl said...

Ha!

AP said...

oh my goodness that is hilarious!! you know I was in the bathroom once and felt so weird because on the back of the stall there was a poster of an upcoming speaker just looking at me!! so freaky

Sheryl said...

That's pricless.

Congrats on your SITS day.

Mom Taxi Julie said...

That is so cute!

StacieinAtlanta said...

That is so funny!

Oz Girl said...

OH that is so cute, but he's right ya know, she DOES have rather piercing eyes...

Goldibug said...

How hilarious! Just like a kid to say something like that isn't it!? I love it! Bless his little soul for just wanting some privacy.

Destiny said...

LOL. Happy SITS day.

Leslie said...

That is too good! Just tells like it is, doesn't he?

Oh, what a cute little fart! (pardon the pun) I wouldn't want her looking at me either!

Ryan and Katie said...

Haha! My sister and I ad NKOTB posters covering our walls as kids and we refused to change clothes in our bedroom bc we felt like they were watching us! :)

Momma Miller said...

Just making my SITStah rounds. This was HILARIOUS! I can't wait to go share this one with the hubby and kids. Have a great day! CONGRATS on being in the spotlight! <3

Shell said...

Hilarious! But, then again, I don't think I'd want Oprah watching me #1 or #2 either.

And, after seeing your bathroom mag rack I am feeling the need to reorganize mine...it looks more like a trash bin! LOL

Laura said...

How funny. Only a child could come up with something like that.

Mindyleigh said...

This cracks me up. My hubby does this. With ALL the magazines. At least, the ones with faces on the cover. :)

I appreciate him being so modest. :)

Have a great day!

Anti-Supermom said...

Funny, we use to have a Santa that would do the same thing, my husband started refuses to have 'him' in the bathroom with him :)

great story

Lynette said...

I know what he means.. I feel that way about pictures on the wall....Seems like they're staring.

Penz said...

kids,,thats all i can say. gotta love em for their info. :)

Mammatalk said...

Fabulous!!

Michelle said...

ha!

your pics are so pretty.

Reluctant Housewife said...

That's hilarious.

Kathy G said...

I totally agree that one must have some privacy when using the potty...even if it is Oprah

Michelle said...

You know... until they explain it, things don't make sense. Then... it kinds does once you see how their minds are working. Too cute!

Tammy Kling said...

That is funny! And I don't blame him - Oprah is the LAST person I'd want watching me in the bathroom!

Playground for Parents said...

Hilarious! I see you taught him well about stranger-danger! ;-)
