Swimming = bath

Okay folks, fess up. How many of you count a swim in the pool or a few runs through the sprinkler as equivalent to a bath for the kids? Aside from the crusty chlorine hair and resulting mass of tangles on the little girl, I’m with you. I think the faint scent of chlorine is just as nice as bath soap. Besides, why waste precious outdoor play time holed up in a hot muggy bathroom when it really isn’t necessary.

Cheers to summer days, swimming pools, sprinklers, and slightly crusty children!

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home.

    I do not think a dip in the pool is an acceptable substitute for a bath; especially with the stinky twin boys I have. The in-laws (and I think to a certain extent, my wife), however, agree totally with you. They believe swimming replaces a tubby any day.

    • I guess it depends on the level of stink your 2 little guys are able to achieve! Some children have exceptional skills in that area and no parent wants their kid to be “that smelly kid” at school.
