Baby shower

I hope you all had a fun Labor Day!  We celebrated by staying in our pajamas and not showering.  And watching a lot of television while Gibson was napping.

I've always been intrigued by how everyone has different standards of personal hygiene.  My husband showers every day without fail (except yesterday, of course).  He is of the opinion that a shower will make you feel better if you're sick...so when I don't feel well, his advice is to just take a shower.  Men.

I am not someone who takes a shower every day.  To me, it feels like a waste of time...not only do I have to spend time in the shower, but then I have to dry off, get dressed, put on moisturizer, and then my hair is wet for the rest of the day.  Blech.  And I have to re-apply makeup.

...yeah, I'm one of those people.  I wear the same makeup for more than one day.  Sue me.

Anyway, I'm not a shower fiend like my husband.  I'm not going to tell you how often I shower, because that's personal information.  And also, you might be grossed out.

One night last week, Gibson needed a bath, and I really needed to shower.  And we had very little time.  So I just took him in the shower with me.  I was expecting there to be lots of screaming, because he LOVES bath time, and the shower is different.  And he doesn't always like different things.

To my surprise, he loved it!  We had so much fun looking at the shower head and getting water in our eyes...it was basically the best day ever.  If you haven't looked directly at your shower head lately, you should.  It's amazing.  The most amazing thing in the world, according to Gibson.  I'm pretty sure he could stare at that thing all day.

Taking a shower with Gibson is one of my favorite things now.  Seeing the wonder in his eyes as water rains down onto his tummy is the best.  He also tries to grab the streams of water, which is really hilarious, because it's water, you dumb kid!  You can't grab it!  Hahaha.  He doesn't even know.

In conclusion, showering with Gibson is great.  It saves time and water, and you should all try it.  But with your own kid.  If you're anything like me, it might encourage you to shower more often.

Also, I should mention that I'm not a gross person, I promise.  I always smell good...just not as good as my husband.
