DodgeBathe, yet another sport I suck at

Posted Aug 20 2012 6:15am

One of the things I’m dying to do one day when all my dreams come true? Is take an uninterrupted shower. Every day when I shower I have Jonah-Jo nearby, toddling around the bathroom and the upstairs hallway.  This little guy has a really good time playing in the hall with all his toys…when he’s not playing his very favorite game, which is of course…

Throw My Toys at Mommy When She’s in the Shower!

So every day, I hurriedly wash and shampoo while constantly on the lookout for Jonah to pull back the curtain and lob a block, puzzle piece, or car at me.  Which he does with great accuracy, I might add.

My latest constant bathing companion?  Is this guy:

Meet Scout.  He’s the LeapFrog dog who sings your name!  And lots of cute songs.  He lights up, and teaches you your ABCs, and he is really Jonah’s best buddy and favorite toy in the entire world.  Plus, he likes to see me n-a-k-e-d!

I guess I should be flattered that Jonah wants to share his #1 pal with me multiple times every time I’m in the shower.  Buuuut, it’s kind of inconvenient.  And, I’m pretty sure it’s bad for his battery pack to get wet, so I always grab him up and fling him into the hallway as quickly as I can, while giving Jonah the “no throw” lecture, and you know, WASHING MY HAIR, but Scout returns to my soapy cell no matter what.  The only solution is to expel him as quickly as possible, wash reaaallly fast, and duck and dodge as other debris flies my way while my little guy claps and giggles.

Sigh.  This game of Dodge Bathe has been going on each day for a couple weeks now, and I’m getting a little weary of it.  Do you know how hard it is to shave your legs and protect your face from flying wooden puzzle pieces at the same time?  I’m going to slash myself in the face someday soon, I know it. It’s only a matter of time!  And you all know how I LOVE my face…

Help!
