Number 5, 6 and 7 are still young enough that I can give them baths together.
Well, that is, until tonight when this conversation took place:
Me: Number 6, Hurry up and get in the water!
Number 5 (5-year-old girl): No! Not yet! I’m not done!
Me: It’s okay. He can get in with you.
Number 5: NO! I DON’T LIKE PENISES!
Me: Number 6, get in the tub.
Number 6 gets into the tub with Number 5.
Number 5: EEEWWWWW! PENIS WATER! PENIS WATER! I’M IN PENIS WATER! GET ME OUT OF HERE!
Me: You have got to be kidding me.
Number 5: I NEED ANOTHER BATH TO WASH THE PENIS WATER OFF OF ME!
Me: Number 5, go get dressed.
Number 5: AAAGGGHHHHHH!!! PENIS WATEEEERRRRRRR! I HAVE PENIS WATER ON ME!
Number 6 (4-year-old boy): Why is she cwying, Mommy? I’m the one sitting in vagina watew, and I don’t weally cayew.
Well, I guess the coed baths are done for good.
I guess Number 5 will fly solo at bath time from now on.
Or at least share vagina water with Number 7.
