For some, it’s a natural thing to do, and shouldn’t cause people to bat an eyelid.
Whereas for others, going to the bathroom while your kids are in the room is controversial, and it should be kept a private affair.
When mummy blogger and AFL WAG, Annie Nolan, who writes the blog Uncanny Annie, shared a snap on Instagram of herself peeing in the presence of her three-year-old daughter, the Internet was divided.
Should you go to the toilet in private, or does it not really matter?
‘When you need to wee but you just spent 15 mins [sic] securely strapping a child to your back,’ the 27-year-old blogger captioned her photo that she uploaded to Instagram on Monday.
‘Poor Delphi! Though she follows me to the toilet every time anyway. Thanks for invading my space and making me laugh @katmaycam,’ the mum of three concluded.
The blogger’s followers were quick to comment on the hilarity of the situation, while some took to the photo-sharing site to reveal their own tales of bathroom woes.
‘I’m 66 and still sit with door open while the grandkids sit and talk while I’m having my supposed private time wouldn’t have it any other way….lol [sic],’ one person wrote underneath Ms Nolan’s post.
‘Lol. True mum status right there,’ someone else added.
Annie Nolan is known for sharing candid tales of parenthood, both on her social media, and her motherhood blog, Uncanny Annie.
In April, she wrote a controversial post about the time she banned her kids from talking to strangers without a parent or teacher present.
‘I am in no way an expert in this field,’ Ms Nolan wrote.
‘I am just another parent who is feeling my way as things like this arise.’
Do you pee in front of your children like Annie Nolan?
