Is this how it works in every house or are we just lucky?

9 year old gets out of shower:

Why are your glasses still on? Oh, oops
How did you wash your hair with your glasses on? I just did
Why didn't you get a towel? I did (points to hand towel)

*10 minutes later*

Why did you put your clothes back on, those need to go in the laundry? Oh, oops
Did you at least put on new underwear? Umm

*10 more minutes later, in pajamas*

You're still soaking wet, did you dry off? Yeah (pajamas are glued to him like paper mache)

  • LOL! DS still needs my help with his hair and drying off. If it were up to him he would just air dry.

  • Yes... I remember those days very clearly! There was a time in there somewhere where we actually had to check the soap to make sure they actually took a shower! LOL!

    Me:Yes- that is part of taking a shower...
    DS: Do I have to use shampoo?
    Me: Um... yay. That's how we wash... with soap.
    DS: I know but do I have to wash my *hair* with the soap.
    Me: Since we want it clean... yes- just go get it done
    DS:Well, what if the soap gets in my eyes?
    Me:You close them just like you do every time now GO! (DS starts the water and showers)
    (5 min passes)
    Me:Time to get out! You have been in there WAY to long!
    DS: But I haven't washed yet!
    Me: Well what have you been doing!? Hurry up!
    DS: Do I have to use soap?
    Me: We are not talking about this again Hurry up you have 2 min before I come in and do it for you!!
