I have to dress up for work, and I really hate dressing up. I would love at the end of the day to come home, take my shower, and then do everything else once I've changed into jammies. Doesn't happen, though. I have too much to do, and I can't trust the kids alone long enough. So, I always end up showering right before bed. I tried doing it in the morning, but I find I don't want to get up and do it. I'm just curious as to when most moms shower: right before bed, in the morning, or just whenever the heck you can get 5 minutes alone in the bathroom? lol

  • When ever I get the chance. Although here lately I've been waiting until my husband comes home and locking myself in the bathroom for a long hot shower with no interruptions.

  • I'm a SAHM and when my kids were babies it used to be first thing when I got up. Now, it's about 10 am because they are both in school. It's funny because if I have to be somewhere early I hate showering first thing when I get up now. Years ago I had to do it first. You get used to it when you work. I like to lounge around especially in the winter.

  • Because I stay at home with my baby boy and girl, I shower when they take there nap at 2 pm. Is the only time I can spend a long time in the shower.

  • usually after she goes to bed. its just easier not worrying what she is doing, if shes really taking her nap or destroying her room...if we have something to do that day (like a doc apointment or something along those lines) i will sit her on my bed with the tv on, put up the gate and take a quick shower so i actually feel clean when i leave the house, i just don't feel as clean during the day or running around if i took my shower the night before

  • Right now it's whenever I have the time. When I go back to work next week it'll be at night. I'm going to have to get up early enough as it is.
