Are you gross if you don't shower first thing in the morning?

 With a little one in tow, most days I count myself lucky to get a shower at all, but to get one first thing in the morning is a very rare treat. I mentioned something on the phone to a friend of mine that I needed to shower and said I was gross for waiting until after noon to take one.

Do you shower first thing in the morning? Is it gross to wait until later in the day?

Nope, I usually don't, unless I didn't get one the night before, then yes. I'm on restricted bed rest, so I don't do enough to get gross. Unless you stink, whatever works for you :)

I have a four month old that is my best friend. Depending on how our day is going I don't always get a shower right away. Usually she sleeps best for her morning nap and that is when I try to shower, I'm usually home most days so its not that big of a deal. But I do have to brush my teeth first thing or I feel gross.

I shower at night but that is because my hair takes forever to blow dry and I am a night owl and its hard for me to get up. I also feel better if I sleep clean

Im a mom of a 8, 7 (with bipolar, adhd, odd) & 6yr old so during the summer its not possible to get a shower until late at night when they are asleep. During the school yr i love my morning showers. either way is not a big deal. night showers are great bc its relaxing and u feel clean to go to sleep but if you sweat at bedtime then morning showers are best.

This exactly! I move very slow in the morning. Lol. I always shower at night and wash up in the morning. And I just CAN'T go to bed without washing the "day" off. Clean body + clean sheets = happy woman.

I don't think it's gross. I do shower every morning though because it's part of my routine now. I like to get up before them so I have time to get myself ready then I can get them ready for school.

I take one around 10am every day. My daughter and I eat breakfast, I drink my coffee, and watch a little tv to wake up a bit. It's whatever fits someone schedule. I don't do it at night because I hate doing my hair and then sleep on it just to fix it in the morning again.

Just do you.

I shower every other day( unless I get dirty or sweaty). No, I don't get gross at all. Showering everyday would seriously dry out my skin.

I don't think it's gross, I shower every morning though but sometimes I wait a little while into the day too. But I do shower at least once a day, I feel gross if I don't.

What time of the day you shower does not signify whether you are gross or not. It depends on when you last showered. I know a lot of people that take their showers at night, every night. So according to your friend, that person is gross simply because they shower at night instead of in the morning, which makes no sense.
