Can you imagine a child that LOVES the swimming pool but doesn't like getting his hair washed in the tub? Well, that'd be mine. Carson spends a lot of time at the pool under water. I can't describe the way people looked at me when I let him go under the water at the pool this summer. Eventually, he would come up for air and on-lookers would start breathing again. I remember looking at parents at the pool in this exact same way as a lifeguard. Now, that I'm a parent and pool employee, I find it pretty comical.
Ever since last September, Carson has not enjoyed me washing his hair when taking a bath. I give him a bath almost every night because its calming affects are obvious for him. He refuses to take a shower, but I'm sure when the day comes that he won't let me give him a bath anymore, I'll miss it.
Also, since September, Carson has insisted on me blowing his hair dry after his bath. Some nights, I try to coax him into skipping this part of his bathing routine. His response is always, "No skipping the hair dry." I really hope this fades by summer!
