It's not at all weird for us. DH has memories of his mom changing in front of him and taking baths with his dad...and my mother STILL has no issue peeing in front of me or my brother (drives my SDad up the wall).
Are we weird?
Chaotic mama to 5 plus a bonus one on the way.
Only problem is like when DH is working way upstairs and then decides right when I'm in the BR is the perfect time for a break, or he leaves out the garage, then comes back in 5 min later for something he forgot. He's gotten used to seeing me in the BR now
It wasn't just the kids that were a problem. DH thinks its perfectly fine to stand there and brush his teeth, shave, whatever while I'm on the toilet. Again, not acceptable to me. The proverbial "straw that broke the camel's back" came when he barged in on me changing a tampon. I told him to wait a minute and he refused and continued on with whatever he was doing. I guess he got tired of me throwing him out of the bathroom and slamming the door in his face because he finally installed a lock. Things have been quite peaceful around here ever since
So yeah, bathroom activities are strictly private for me. I have no problem with "family nudity". There's no A/C here so we're topless or nude in the summer months. But if I'm on the john or bathing, please leave me alone
haven't gone to the bathroom w/ the door closed (unless we have company) in 2.5 years!!!!
A good day is just DH on the toilet, me in the shower, DS sitting on the counter.
The not so good days are when the two cats need to join us.
There is a definately lack of bathroom boundaries in our family. Every once in a while DS will ask for the door to be shut but not often.

Also one time DH was bathing DS and he was playing with his stacking cups and he picks up the smallest one which is red and has a curvy bottom and says "This my Diva cup"
Yeah no privacy here. I actually was commenting to DH how I don't get how people have anything but an open door bathroom policy

I'd also like to know more about that "alone" thing! Does it even exist? Or was it just a dream I had once?
My husband feels more weird about her being in with him while he does toilet stuff (I don't care at all if she sees because at her age, I think it is beneficial to her) but sometimes he brings her with too and she'll play or 'potty' as well.
honestly, if I let her, she'd probably play in the bathroom half the day....
And yeah, DH and I both let DD in the bathroom, but we prefer not to go in front of each other.
If it is just me and DS at home we leave the door open. Though DS doesn't like the dog (Sam) coming in so he'll often close the door if Sam is right there.
But DH and I always close the door in front of each other - not something we need to share/know about the other person!
DS is finally good about closing the door and not barging in on company.
We have a gate in that door because otherwise we can't keep our daughter out. So I don't actually get joined in the bathroom much, but she's always watching.
My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.

In the beginning of our relationship, DH was a little weirded out by it, but after all these years, he's used to it. The door is only closed for showers (it opens right into the bathmat area), or if we have company. And it doesn't have a lock on it.
