    If it's a quick shower (no shaving, no shampooing) then I'll leave him with toys in the lounge or in the jumping frame (not a jolly jumper, quite safe). I'm in and out in like a minute.

    If it's a decent shower I take him into the ensuite with me & he just fiddles about in there.

    DS comes in the shower with me most of the time. We've been doing that since he was about 12 months old. Prior to that I'd sit him in his rocker or his Bumbo on the bathroom floor with some toys/books/etc and talk to him while I was showering.

    I try to shower before my husband leaves for work (that's not hard, he leaves at 1pm!). Otherwise, stick her in front of ABC Kids. She usually just pops in and out of the bathroom - there's no way she'd stay in the bathroom with a pile of toys while I shower, she'd be more inclined to unroll the toilet paper, put things into the toilet, open and slam shut the shower door, and eat the contents of the drawers. All that in about 20 seconds before running off to make more mischief somewhere else in the house.

    It used to be quite a challenge as we had a tiny bathroom ... but we did manage to put the highchair in so he could sit in that during showers - but it left 80cm square spot for us to dry & get dressed. Now, we have a new bigger bathroom and the highchair fits readily. So, most of the time if we're showering when he's home he goes into the highchair with food or books. He's happy.

    Otherwise I leave him watching tv or playing - he's usually quite happy doing both first thing in the morning. He will wander in and out (I keep the door open) and doesn't get up to much mischief. He's quite happy to sit on his step in the bathroom and talk to me for most of the shower.

    The minute my hubby is home - kiss, cuddle, "how was your day....okay... I'm in the shower, heres baby!"

    And then I get in the shower and for 20 minutes I can totally zone and forget I'm a mummy.
