Tonight as I was tucking my son into bed, I noticed that his socks were dirty and helped him take them off. He said, "How many days ago was Sunday?" before I noticed that these socks are the same socks he wore to church. 5 days ago. Seriously? Somehow this child of mine managed to escape the bath police all week long!
He hadn't even taken his socks off. How did I not notice that? So gross.
I made good and sure that the girls got their showers throughout the week. Our general rule is this:
"If you didn't shower yesterday, shower today"
This reminds me of an award my daughter once made for me...
I don't remember what I did to warrant this kind of harassment, but I'm sure it was something equally as awful as not bathing my child for 5 days.
I'm so embarrassed. Why on earth am I publishing this for all the world to know? I'm not really sure, other than I want you all to feel a little better about your parenting skills. It's a good thing I stopped at 3 kids, I'm not very good at this.
Some people probably bathe their dogs more that every 5 days. Speaking of which, I don't remember the last time the dog had a bath either...
I DID, however, make sure Man had clean clothes to wear, so you know I'm not completely neglectful mother. I even let him play in the dryer for a while today. Here he is looking out at me while he spins around.
I know, I know. It's a good thing he's so darn cute.
