Huh. I'm all about family togetherness, but after hearing that Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott shower with their four children, I just can't help but be a bit, well -- weirded out.
No, this isn't a rumor. Tori willingly admitted on Twitter that she and the fam have recently started getting their group shower on. She said, "@Deanracer & I just had our 1st family shower w/all 4 babes. Went really well & saved on individual bath time! & only 1 babe pooped N shower."
Ok, so the poop thing is pretty funny because every mom has had a child poop in the tub (or shower?) -- but the part about the six of them bathing together? I'm having a tough time hopping on board with that one.
First of all, I can't seem to wrap my head around how they managed to fit six people in the shower. They must have one hell of an awesome master bath, but I guess that's beside the point.
Second, their older kids, Liam and Stella, are 6 and 4 years old. Aren't they both a little bit too old to be showering with their parents? Or if they're going to shower with their parents, shouldn't Liam shower with Dean and Stella shower with Tori -- separately? I mean, I guess I'm ok with them taking the babies in the shower, because they're babies and they don't know the difference between being naked and clothed, and you gotta hose 'em off one way or the other. But the older kids? I don't think so.
My son is my whole world, but at 7 years old, there's no way I'm about to hop in the shower with him. Actually, now that I think about it, I've never showered with him. My husband has, especially when he first made the switch from taking baths to taking showers. But he's been showering on his own for well over a year now, and I can't imagine either one of us getting in there with him -- especially not me.
Back to Tori and Dean's kids -- um, hello? They're both old enough to know that boys and girls have different parts, and it seems strange enough for them to be bathing together as brother and sister, let alone with grown adults of the opposite sex. Something about it just seems so inappropriate and odd, but then again, who am I to judge? Those are Tori and Dean's kids, and if showering as a family works for them, I guess I really shouldn't question it.
(But I still find the whole idea really creepy and weird.)
Do you shower with your kids?
