I've never understood the bird bath thing. I've only done it when I've not been able to shower. It takes less than a minute to have a quick soap up and rinse. When did showers become a tedious and complicated task?! (Aside from the ones where I exfoliate, wash hair, condition hair, shave..... soooo tedious).
They are tedious in this house as H always pushes in first and uses up all the hot water. So one cold shower every other day is enough for me, and top to toe wash via cloth on the other days.
Having said that, at the moment, because it is so cold I have been using the "but I'm pregnant" excuse to get in first, and daily!
He is always surprised that there is water left for him- that would be because I have a 15 minute shower and not a 45 minute one!
Also I shave every second day, so yes, tedious
[QUOTE=CazHazKidz;8242338]I totally get that, which is why we always bath/shower at night before bed (unless we've literally done nothing all day where we may not bother). But I don't see why you then need to shower again in the morning? You just got clean and went to bed? Did you get dirty in your sleep? Look I'm not saying people shouldn't shower morning and night, but I can't see why it's an issue not to. I see no point in wasting my time and water on a shower in the morning when I just got clean before I went to bed.[/]
Yeah I get that too. If I know I've got a week of really dirty work (not uncommon) I'll shower at night and get up and go in the morning (because I'm just going to get dirty in an hour anyway). But I generally like showering in the morning, so at some point ill need a day of 2 showers to get back to my morning routine! 2 showers a day is not an everyday thing in our house, but we all have at least 1 shower every day.
I shower twice a day. It helps me wake up in the morning and I wash my hair and I like the feeling of having a hot shower (or cool shower in summer) before I go to bed.
DP showers twice a day as well. If he came home from work and went straight to be I would get out! He is a doctor and I have no idea what gross stuff he has all over him. The times he has had marks on his scrubs and I ask what is that I have just about spewed.
The kids shower once a day before dinner. My older DD is starting to want to have a shower in the morning as well.
