Another bath question

Daughter and  I were talking about this last Sunday. What would be your first thought, if you heard a 3yo boy say I take baths with my uncles?

  • My first question would be, how old's his uncles?

    I've known more than a few families where aunts/uncles were around the same age as their nieces/nephews.

  • I would think WEIRD. I cant see my brothers EVER taking or wanting to take a bath with MY children.But maybe thier lifestyle is different? Maybe the boy lives with his Uncles and they are like father figures? I don't know..I guess thats looking on the "bright" side of it...I would definitley think it sounded fishy and not quite so normal to me. :/

  • Maybe he means his uncle's give him baths and not necessarily get in the tub with him? Maybe his uncles are around the same age as him?

  • I would find that very weird. My son only takes baths with his dad, if we are in a rush. But he is 1 so it isn't too weird yet.

  • I wouldnt really think anything of it. My brother gives my son baths all the time. Im sure if he staied at there house they might shower together. My son just turned 3 and I still shower with him sometimes. He's 3...

  • OK we're half and half here his uncle is 8. They play outside and get real dirty and muddy so before he goes home I throw them both in the bath. See all is not as seems at times.
