My girls have a problem. They don't seem to know how to share a bathroom. Literally every morning and every night before bed there are arguments, fights, yelling, door slamming...it's really quite exhausting. Not to mention a poor way to both start and end a day.
You would think it wouldn't really be that difficult - but it's always one thing after another...
One of them locks the other one out - sometimes it's legitimate and they need their privacy, but most of the time it's just to be a pain.
Or they race to see who gets there first and the one who wins slams the door behind them making the other one mad, yelling that "you could've squished my fingers in the door!"
Or one of them hides behind the door and jumps out at the unsuspecting sibling and scares the living daylights out of her - which never ends well.
Or one of them is front-and-center by the sink and refuses to budge out of the way when the other one needs to spit their toothpaste out.
Or one of them is brushing their hair in front of the mirror and doesn't make room for the other one to see what they're doing in the mirror.
Or one of them really needs to pee but the other one won't get out of the way.
Or one of them is just purposefully doing something really annoying just to tick the other one off.
Or sometimes one of them will claim that their "other half" put soap on their toothbrush.
ARGH!! It's seriously enough to make me want to pull my hair out. Every. Single. Day. I am at my wit's end and I have no idea how to deal with this. We have thought about making them have separate bathroom times for teeth brushing - but really, they need to learn how to share their space. So, if any of you have any creative ways to deal with this seemingly endless dilemma - I'm all ears!
