Bath Horror

As frightening as this picture is I think my kids could give this little guy a run for his money at shampoo time. I'm pretty sure the neighbors think I'm cleaning them with a branding iron when it's time to rinse out the tear free, unscented, dye free soap from their hair. The way son carries on you would think he was balls deep in battery acid instead of bubble bath.
"God no mother! Not a pink plastic bucket filled with waah-waaater to pour on my head! Cruel, vile woman!".
Maybe that's how I should dress up for Halloween. I'll put on a tee shirt with no bra, soaking wet jeans and hold a bottle of shampoo in one hand and Big Gulp cup of water in the other.

Ding Dong

Trick or Treater: Holy Crud, run it's a mom at bath time!

All: Aaaaaaaah!

I love it Lotta......... my kids totally did the same crap! Drama!

My daughter is just as bad........ it kills me how they will dive into a body of water with dirt and bug crap in it but God forbid rinsing of the hair.

Same thing goes on at my house, but its my daughter. My son treats the bath like his very own personal pool, goggles and all. My daughter cries and screams when it is her turn, and she is 7!

I even got that special bucket, soft on one side? To prevent drips?


Same bloodcurdling horror here LOL!

I think I must subscribe to the Mommy Dearest school of bathing as I refuse to buy visors and such. If they don't tip their heads back they get a cup of water over the head.

Wow, does this post bring back memories! My son would scream so loud during baths that I was sure the neighbors would call in the police to investigate. I'm glad to know that I'm not alone with that problem.

OMG, I totally understand. My daughter shrieks at a volume only dogs can hear when ever I tip her back to rinse out her hair. You'd think i was beating her with barbed wire or something.

I know - these are the same kids that go underwater in piss and chlorine filled pool gleefully. God forbid you bring some tear free shampoo by their face.
