  • Anon- a lot of unnecessary, silly info there. And what does it say for your cousin if she sleeps with a man who only bathes once a week and does the same for her child?

  • "black people just don't bathe as much"

    LOLOLOLOLOL!!!! My cousin just happens to be here with me and she is black, I just showed her that line and she said "It's not cuz he's black, his stinky ass is just gross!" Oh goodness thanks for the laugh!

    As for OP's question, I used to hold my breath when my kids were in diapers. My SO used to gag and cause a scene when he would change the diapers and I told him, you're not supposed to take a big whiff you know! Breathe through your mouth!

  • 1:15 PM Anonymous ~ I don't where your cousin got that information from but black bathe just as much as anybody else. Maybe just her man doesn't like bathing idk

    Your right we don't need to wash our hair as often because it's not healthy for our hair. so most wash it like 1 or 2 times a week is all we need
