It's Hard Out Here For A Pimp

I'd been trying to wash my hair for the last 2 days. When I shower, I put Aiden in his bouncer and sit him outside the tub. Yesterday, he wasn't having it and started flailing around as soon as I set him down. Commence 4 minute shower with nasty hair the rest of the day. I wore a hat.

Today, Aiden was pretty good for the first ten minutes, but then he started to fuss and try to push himself off of the bouncer. For a second, I thought he was going to flip over backwards. Uhhh, no bueno.

Next thing I know, I'm dancing naked to "Under The Sea" (I had Pandora on the Toddler station) with shampoo still in my hair in an attempt to calm him. 4 minutes later, I'm shaving my legs with the curtain half open and singing "5 little monkeys jumping on the bed..." as he's not sure whether to continue crying or plug his ears.

I finally finish showering after many "it's okays, I'm almost dones," and I'm rewarded with "Mah Na Mah Na," which is quite possibly the worst ear-worm known to man.

This is my life now.  ♫ Do do do do ♪

    1. In the last few weeks, my hormones have fluctuated so much that my hair gets greasy SO quickly. Dry shampoo doesn't even help. I used to be able to wash my hair about once a week, and now I have to at least twice a week.

      The worst part is because my hair is SO thick, it takes me at least 20 minutes to shampoo & condition.

  2. I just read this blog post last week about a mom trying to shower with a new baby. It was pretty hilarious and also filled me with dread. I wish I could find it to share with you because given this post, I think you'd get a kick out of it.
