“When was the last time you showered?”

“You better go take a shower.”

“No, you can’t just put your hair in a pony tail, go wash it.”

“Because you can’t remember the last time!”

“No, you have to.”

“Because you can’t remember the last time, that means it’s been too long!”


“Did you wash your hair yet?”

“Okay, but don’t come out until you wash and condition it.”

“Did you wash it?”

“Go, get back in and wash and condition it!”

“Because we will never be able to get all the snarls out otherwise!”

*Thirty Seven hours of brushing and crying and whining later…*

“There, all nice and smooth and shiny!”


Unrelated photo. And yet it seemed appropriate anyway…


When was the last time I showered?

Damn, I can’t remember.

*Go to use shampoo and conditioner and find empty bottles.*

*Try to brush hair.*

*Fail due to large snarls.*

*Throw it all in pony tail anyway.*

    I have three long-haired daughters. I could probably retire on the king’s ransom I’ve spent over the years on shampoo and conditioner. Oh wait–I’m already retired. Guess I’ll settle for payment in grandchildren.

  5. I ended up getting my daughters hair cut because of similar situations!

    Oh my! your post reminds me of my own children. “Mommy, we just showered last week,” they would say when I send them to a shower. I thought this aversion to water is a boy thing – it may just be a child-thing after all. πŸ™‚

  7. I can so relate to this
