Why is it after bathing four young girls and a dog I feel as though I need a shower too? Aren't baths supposed to make you clean? And if everyone is getting clean why is it that my bathroom looks like a tornado went through it when we are done? Who knew it could take an entire evening and the bathroom is still waiting for me to pick up?
And since I am asking so many unanswerable bathroom questions, how is it my girls get any toothpaste in their mouths since I find so much all over the bathroom? It's on the sink, numerous towels (we all know I love the extra laundry), the counter, the bathmats, and the floor. I also have a clever marketing idea for toothpaste manufacturers. Why not make it clear? Why make it bright, eye catching blue so that everyone who walks past the bathroom knows what a mess my kids have made with the toothpaste? Really, I fall for every gimmick out there, I am sure I would buy "easier to clean toothpaste."
They had fun, though. Little JuJu will start tugging at her clothes the minute we walk into the bathroom. She yells too, one cannot get her in the tub fast enough. Bophie likes to stay in until her fingers are wrinkled. Even though the older girls shower pretty much on their own, an eavesdropping mom hears lots of giggles and squeals, and somehow the floor is inevitably soaked when she goes in to bathe the younger crowd. I suppose they are all clean, and some fun was had, so a little cleaning up afterwards is a small price to pay, right?
Off to clean said bathroom....
