Bath Time!

When is it that bath time goes from being one of the best parts of the day to just another thing you have to do?

I am serious with this one. When I tell my kids it's time for baths they race each other to the bathroom and see who can be the first one to get all their clothes off and into the bath even when I haven't started running the water.

For me taking a shower is something that takes time away from doing other things that need to be done, and it has become just another item to add to my list of daily chores that is way to long anyway. Don't get me wrong here once I'm in the shower I love being there because of it's relaxing qualities, as long as my kids, husband, and the dog stay away from the bathroom door. I guess I'm just wondering when it was that I stopped thinking that this daily activity was the best thing ever.

I know there are women out there that love to take baths but not me. I remember loving it as a kid but that changed at some point I just don't remember when. Am I the only one that thinks this (very possible because I am a bit weird)?

* I just wanted to say that I thought about using one of the really cute pics I have of the kids taking a bath but I decided to save that for a time when it will embarrass them the most. Isn't that what moms are supposed to do?!*

I agree! I mean I don't hate the shower but I don't get excited like the kids do.:)

When we were kids, it was someone else's JOB/PLEASURE to give us a bath or shower. Now we need to accomplish X number of things before we get in the shower and X number of things after we get out of the shower and think of a list of X number of things we still needed to do and have no business in the shower!
