  • honestly, less..we're in the pool most days. and at 6yo, he doesn't stink..i think the salt-water treatment kills a lot of the funk. lol! but yes, he will take a real bath at least every other day.
    just keepin' it real, ladies.

  • Less. Mine spend most of their time in the swimming pool in the summer. We really spend around 6 hours a day in it. That being said I am alot more lax on baths/showers. I do expect them to wash their hair and bathe or shower atleast every other day though rather than daily.

  • Definitely more. They get much dirtier in the summer! Between playing outside and at the pool and fishing and camping etc, they are dirty little grubs by the time they go to bed! Confused at why some think that playing in the pool is like taking a bath? Especially a public pool. Gross!

  • Probably more - they're outside more, they're swimming more (I like to wash the chlorine off before they go to bed!), during the school year I only insist on 3 showers a week, minimum, usually it's 4 or 5, but during the summer they take on almost every day.

  • Around the same. I still have to work, and she comes with me, so we still shower or bathe daily. Especially since she's usually outside running around getting sweaty with the other kids most of the day.

  • more, because they are outside playing more and sweating more....of course they are homeschooled so they are always home, but
