But the the strangest part was this would make it 2 days in a row. That hasn't happen since he was maybe 4 and LOVED bathes. When he turned 5 he was too old for bathes, he told me. So from that day on showers it has been but for the past 2 years (he is 9 now) its like pulling fricken teeth to get this boy to even shower!! We would have outright meltdowns in the morning/night and after so many of them I just gave up...he had to take at least 3 showers a week- no ands/if/buts dude! That was our compromise to stop the meltdowns. He got to pick the days- I know kind of a soft mom there but I wanted him to want to do this on his own instead of me threatening bodily harm (just kidding but you know I thought it). I would let him know he was stinking and left reminders but this was his thing.
So WOOHOO my boy took a shower 2 days in a row and I'm very thankful! Now family and friends don't share to him that I posted this because I know he would be sooooo embarrassed but hey isn't that what moms are for :)
Do any other moms have such a hard time getting their son's to take baths/showers?
