Bathing Together

XY has been asking me many times to bathe her and didi together when she sees didi in the bathroom. I haven't tried that coz the shower area (separated by shower screen in the bathroom) is quite small. They won't be able to move much (which is better, no?) and I'll need to stand at the door when they're both inside.

But the other day, I made an exception. After they played in the garden, I bathed both of them together. There's no bath tub as CE doesn't use it anymore. I just showered them while they're standing up. But still they find that fun. It was evening so don't have to shampoo their hair. I just wet their hair. After I wet their hair and body, I put soap for XY and asked her to scrub herself. Then I lathered soap onto didi. Once done, I rinsed the soap off them. Next, wrap XY in a towel. And she wiped herself dry and wore her clothes while I attended to didi.

I doubt I'll do that often as it takes longer to bathe them together. Scared they'll catch a cold. On the other hand, if they don't do this 'bathing together fun' now, it won't be appropriate anymore as they grow older. hmmm... Do you let your kids bathe together?

A little update on the sick folks at home :
Thank you so much for your well wishes. The kids are much better already, just coughing occasionally. As for me, the throat's not so painful anymore but just a little uncomfortable. Still got lots of phlegms to expel.

yup, I let my kids to bath together as they took off their clothes without asking me, and walked in to the bathroom together.

I bathe them together (my boy and girl) cos' it's faster. In order for them not to catch cold, I close the bathroom window and off the aircon and fan in the room.

But I guess when they are older, I should bathe them separately.

My 2 older gals love taking their shower together too but it's quite hard to manage 2 together. They also love it that I bathe with them together!

Glad that you're feeling much better now. No more zombie-slave, I hope ;p

I recall bathing with my siblings, all 3 of us after helping my parents to wash the car. It's still etched in my memory. Super FUN! Bathing beside the car using the garden hose!

but when they're older, then there's going to be a problem...hehehe...

Hmmmm...both my kids take their bath together. I really don't know whether should I separate both of them cos at times me and my hub also take bath together with them.

alicia said...

slavemom said...

Ling, they're vy smart. Just go in naked, n u can't say "no". hehehe

Wen, wait till ur maid comes. Then she can keep 1 company while u bathe 1.

Mummykhong, oh ya, I forgot abt the windows.

Mich, save time as compared to bathing them separately. But it takes longer to bathe 1 compared to 2.

Jaanvi, thx for dropping by.

i prefer not to let my 2 monkeys bath together in the bathroom....they r rough & it's getting tough to control them. at d end of d day...i got bathed also coz they tend to wet me too....hai!
but sometimes, it difficult to stop them from wanting to bath together....susah susah !!

jazzmint said...

slavemom said...

Jac, I can imagine how much fun the boys r having when they bathe (more like playing water) together. hahaha

Jazz, not difficult to handle 2 playful kids?
