I love summer. I am not a cold weather girl. After growing up in the midwest, I've logged enough blizzards to last a lifetime. I like the fact that where I now live we can have a huge snow storm one day and 60 degree weather the next in the winter. I could do without the blistering summer heat, but I can deal with it. Warm weather means my daughters and I can get out and run ourselves ragged.
So now you're wondering... what's up with my title if I like summer? Easy... summer means virtually every night is bath night. It's a hard enough task with four... now couple that with the fact that Hubby's new work schedule has him working nights and I'm sooooo over bath night.
When my daughters were in the NICU, the nurses stressed that a nightly bath isn't necessary for babies. Really, it's best not to do a daily bath if you want to avoid dry skin. I had a rigid every other night bath schedule in place, which worked great until my daughters started preschool. I couldn't stand the thought of them going to bed without a bath after playing outside and being around other germy kids. So bath night became every night that they had school the next day. Every other night I washed their hair. Now it's summer. I think I can count exactly two non-bath nights since school has been out. We've been to the pool nearly every day, or we've played in the back yard, or we've gone to the park, or we ran through the fountains at a cool water park (yes, that's my girls in the picture). They're covered in sunscreen and chlorine. Skipping baths really isn't an option.
Still, I'll gladly bathe them every night if it means we're having fun and not buried in snow!
