It seems like every woman -- moms especially -- wants to feel as though the shower is her sanctuary. It's the place where a gal can put her life on hold for even a few minutes and take care of herself, work up a good lather while she has those deep shower thoughts, or maybe have a few a-ha moments. Of course, having that privacy and break to ourselves might translate to eyebrow-raising, silly, or just plain, let's say, interesting behavior.
