Most people would adore the idea of an admiring crowd following them everywhere. Those people obviously aren't mothers.
Moms are used to the masses of small ones shadowing their every move, back and forth between rooms and laundry area, up and down stairs, all while keeping up a breathlessly running commentary on the mother's actions. Even a trip to the bathroom does not go unattended. And should the mother attempt to close the door between them, her offspring will loudly protest being cut off from their idol, punctuating this injustice with pounding fists and feet. The more timid little ones might decide that if they can't be entirely in the same room with her, then perhaps just a portion of themselves might suffice, and will content themselves with sticking their fingers, toes, and noses under the door, ever questioning if they are seen.
Now, a word of warning. Should you decide that your time in the bathroom is better spent not yelling at your kids to be quiet or insisting that those fingers can be seen just as easily when you're done, you might leave the door open. This might become such a regular event that you soon think nothing of leaving the bathroom door open during all your visits. But be careful about getting too lax in your attention to details here. It's too easy to fall into a habit, regardless of the situation.
Leaving the door open every time you use the restroom is not advisable.
Because you might not think about it and find yourself leaving the door ajar during a trip to the bathroom in the middle of Sunday dinner...
…when you have company over.
