Just A Bath Thwarted By A Castle Of Stuffed Cats

My kids do not take a bath every day because I don’t believe in showering daily and my baby-soft skin and hair prove I’m right. Go ahead and pet my arm. Amazing, right?

But being on a non-daily schedule means missing bath night isn’t an option. Or it’s a smelly option that makes me feel judged. Plus, not being pro-bathing means I have “Bath Kids” in my iPhone to-do list so I won’t forget, and, if we skip a day, I CAN’T CHECK IT OFF. {twitchtwitch}

However, even my compulsive stubbornness is thwarted on occasion, such as the occasion of a castle of stuffed cats in the bathtub.


Um, yeah, my stinky kids totally win this one.

She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. It’s like a fortress. With the moat INSIDE the castle. Brilliant. That would make no one ever want to storm that crazy castle (well, that and the cats…).
