I give my kids baths every night. I didn't realize the impact this had on my kids' hygienic practices until recently.
Take this morning. As I was taking care of the baby, who was decidedly telling me that she wanted to be asleep and needed me to get her there now, I heard the bathroom sink turn on. Thinking Emily was washing her hands, I didn't immediately check on them. Like 5 minutes later, she and Andrew came rushing out with lotion and soap covering their very wet bodies.
"What in the world are you doing?" I asked.
"Taking a bath," Emily informed me.
At least they like taking baths.
