“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!”
“AND WASH YOUR HAIR SO WE CAN BRUSH IT!!!”
“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!”
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.*

(Messy buns are better at hiding the tangles (and grease) than ponytails… :))
I”ll keep it in mind! 🙂
All the fun with little ones.
Yeah… *all* the fun…. 😉
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.
😀 That goat might be a bit far in the future to get me through the next round of showers and hair brushing but I’ll try it! 😀
Ooh, that face!! (She’s just wonderful.)
I ended up getting my daughters hair cut because of similar situations!
It’s the “big” threat around here… It only sort of works. I may have to follow through with it soon.
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. 🙂
Yup, long hair and everything, my girls still are not interested in cleaning up, must be a kid thing!
I can so relate to this
Thanks for saying so, and also I’m sorry… 😉
