If my husband catches wind of this, it’s gonna ruin everything…
I don’t like showering when the kids are home because I don’t get any privacy, and if I DO get privacy, I’m in for it because it means the boys are into something. Or fighting.
I don’t like showering when the kids are NOT home because that’s just a waste of my “alone” time.
I don’t like showering at night because… I don’t know why. I just don’t. Although, sadly this is when it most frequently gets done.
I DO like showering when my husband is home during the day, which is not often.
I say something like: “Bird (yes, I call him Bird) I’m just gonna nip upstairs and take a shower – back in 10 minutes“. And I chuckle to myself.
Then I race upstairs before he can say anything, start the shower, and grab an e-cloth. Because I ALWAYS shower with an e-cloth.
Ewww, that sounds kinky somehow. Don’t worry, nothing kinky going on ’round here.
I’m not talking about an e-cloth body/face cloth (although they’re wonderful!). I’m talking about an e-cloth cleaning cloth.
I know, I know, you’re asking something like: “Um, Kate… Pardon me, but what have you been smoking?”
Well, let me tell you. I do it because it gains me extra minutes of highly coveted alone time.
Yes, ALONE TIME!!!!!! Fellow mamas of young kids, you read that correctly. Lets spell that out. A…L…O…N…E…TIME!
It feels good just typing that.
Sorry, I was daydreaming there. Where was I? Oh yeah…
You can’t do THAT with spray cleansers! Well, I guess technically you could but… Yikes! Danger! Coat yourself with chemicals much?
This is the one cleaning job that I milk every freaking minute that I can out of and I thank you for not spreading the word to The Bird Man!
If you’re wondering why I like the Bathroom Cloth and Cleaning Pad for tub/shower cleaning or want to know my e-cloth picks for ANY cleaning job, feel free to ask me in a comment. I love to help!
