My middle son still prefers taking baths more than showers which is a little disappointing as he’s already a pro at washing his own hair and face in the shower — which is really pretty remarkable considering he’s just 4 years old.
My older one (now barely 6 years old), well, while he’s exclusively a shower type of guy, he still struggles with the whole “soap in the eyes” thing…before we even turn the water on. Yeah, it’s an ongoing problem but that’s for another post on another day…
So, last night, while Henrik was “swimming” away in the bathtub, I must’ve said “Watch your head” around 5000 times. I wasn’t keeping count but, seriously, it was said a minimum of 5000 times in regards to the perilously placed spigot.
And that got me thinking… You know how when you say a word over and over so many times that it stops making sense and you can barely say it anymore?
Well, did you ever think about “Watch Your Head”?
I don’t know about you but I can only see some of my nose, a bit of the tops of my cheeks, and, on occasion if they’re really unruly (usually just after I wake up), a little of my eyebrows too.
Much like trying to lick your own elbow, it’s impossible to “watch your head”.
You can’t do it.
Next bath time, I’m going to say something different, something that makes more sense…
Chances are, he’ll hit his head…
