This is a post the girls will probably frown upon when they're a bit older...but it's one I really want to write in hopes of remembering this one day.
The girls aren't always big fans of showers.
(I can't begin to understand this. I know they don't like the interruption from their books...or from hanging out with the cats...whatever...but showers are one of the very favorite parts of this mama's day!!!)
A couple of weeks ago, I told the girls it was time for a shower, and they headed that way somewhat reluctantly. While I gathered towels and PJs, they got a head start. Before I knew it, they were giggling and having a big time.
I overhead a cry of "Back wash!" I was at first somewhat concerned, until I saw what they were doing.
When I joined them, they informed me they had agreed to wash each others' backs.
(One day, when they're older, they'll understand the *other* meaning of 'back wash' and know why this was so funny!)
OK. Have at it!
B apparently had done her job already. "Are you guys ready to get out?" I asked.
NO!!! They decried in unison. "Sissy still has to wash my back!" B exclaimed.
I wish I had a video. My A soaped up B's washcloth and washed B's back like it was her JOB. I couldn't help but cackle. She took that job so seriously. "It's like you're washing the side of a car!" I couldn't help but comment.
Of course that devolved everyone into a fit of giggles.
Fun times! And if 'back wash' helps give the girls a little more pep towards the shower...I'm all for a good scrubbing!
