You Can't Win with this Child
Yesterday, Mark was telling Jianna it was bath night. During the winter, the girls shower every other night unless we feel they need an extra.
Jianna didn't really want to stop playing to have her shower, so began to negotiate and explain why she did not need a shower.
She started out with the fact that she had had 2 showers in a row, therefore, she should be able to skip a night.
We explained that she could not "bank" her showers.
She did not feel she was dirty as there was no dirt to be seen on her.
We explained that there were oils from your body and dust that get in your hair and that she did indeed need a shower.
Mark, trying to solidify our argument, brought up the fact that he showered every day.
Without missing a beat, Jianna, seriously as can be says, "Yeah well you are made out of dirt so you need more showers!"
Honestly, the kid's too smart for her own good!
She may be smarter than us, but she did still have her shower, and we laughed our heads off while she did.
