Last week, I sent the boys in for their showers. While one was showering, I had a little thought that maybe I should ask the other (I will not say whom, so that I can protect his innocence) about his showering habits.
Me: Hey son, when you shower do you wash everything on your body?
Son: Oh, yes mama....everything!
Me (prying just a little further): Well that is good to hear. Um, do you wash your arms?
Son: Oh, yes mama, I wash my arms. (nodding his head emphatically)
Me: Good, do you wash under your arms?
Son: Ummm... I don't know. But I will now.
Me: (slight giggle) That is okay. Just remember to wash there too. Do you wash your legs and feet?
Son: Oh, yes mama, I wash my legs and feet (again nodding his head).
Me: How about your head and hair?
Son: Yes, yes! I wash my head and my hair!
Me: Well good.
And then, holding back any sort of giggling I could. I seriously asked the following question....
Me: Do you wash your butt?
Son: Of course mama! I wash my butt. Just not my butt crack!!!!!
That was all it took! I, myself, cracked! I began to giggle and then I laughed out loud! Trying my hardest to be somewhat serious, I explained to my sweet son, that indeed that might just be one of the most important places to wash and then sent him off to the shower.
