Most every evening we get a little push back around bath time…”Daddy, I’m not dirty…”” Daddy…we just took a shower last night…” “Daddy…I don’t want to…”

And the dance goes on for a moment. With the fussing and the disdain and the disinterest in cleanliness.

But then The Beautiful Bride had the most amazing thought…

After we give the the call to tub, and begin to hear the girls say, “But I’m not dirty…I took a bath last night…I don’t want too…I’m still clean…” our new quick and easy reply is “Well then just smell your sister’s feet…OK, how do they smell?”

The reply is always, “They are nasty…” “To which we can say, “Right, and she took a shower last night just like you, so you can just imagine that your feet are equally funky. Go hop in the tub.”

And they are left in an indefensible position. Brilliant.
