  • I like to take baths but when I can do that is the question lol. Bath times are "me times" for me and I dont get that often. I like to stay in the tub for hours (I have to keep adding hot water because it gets too cold at times lol). By the time the little one is asleep and the DH is off watching a game I am too tired to take one. So I take that me time and lay down in the bed and watch what "I" want to watch for a change on tv. Its either what the DH or DS wants to watch all the time. Basketball or Kung Fu Panda. I take quick showers during the work week and long hot showers on weekends when DH is off. I at least get that time. It is good for women to take a bath because it cleanses us in areas wash cloths cant reach lolwink

  • I just don't feel like a bath gets me as clean as a shower I have an old claw foot tub that doesn't hold heat for crap.

  • The last time I took a bath was a few weeks after I had my baby. Other than that, I don't think anyone has ever taken a bath in my house except for my baby. All showers. My husband says he doesn't like laying in his filth, lol.

  • I don't do anything to get filthy so it doesn't bother me. I just like the thought of laying back soaking in that little jacuzzi.

  • I've haven't taken a bath in years. Our bathtub is cracked. We fixed it best we could but there is no way it could support my 250lbs plus the weight of the water. The kids aren't even allowed to take baths any more (they are the ones that broke it). They haven't taken a bath in at least a year...only showers.
    I never really liked baths anyway. I'm too big to really fit in the tub (the water doesn't even cover half of me) and then I feel all grimey afterwards and have to take a shower so I skip the middle step and just take a scalding hot shower.
