(That title is going to give me some uncomfortable search engine hits I just know it)
A few months back Leanne and I were chatting and somehow the topic of me showering with my kids was brought up. She brought up that Silas is going to start remembering things soon so I should probably stop getting nude around him. I haven’t even thought of that.
I know I remember seeing my mom nude and Brent remembers his mom. Leanne said she doesn’t remember seeing her parents that way so obviously she thinks it’s weirder than I would. But this got me wondering when the time is that I should stop letting them see me nude. Will I just know it’s time or is there a recommended time seeing that we’ve got all these weird abuse issues these days?
I LOVE showering with my kids. It’s just a nice time for them when they’re babies to get some skin to skin time plus they love playing in there. Silas used to just lay on me and listen to me sing. When we lived in the apartment we’d never run out of hot water so we’d be in there for hours. Silas doesn’t cuddle anymore but he still enjoys the shower a lot. Ikey never has cuddled anyone ever so he just sits on the bottom and plays. I used to just stick a towel down and he’d lay there and kick while I showered. It really helps them to not mind getting water in their faces, I highly recommend it.
I don’t really mind if the boys remember seeing me nude. I just don’t know when the right time to stop is. Not even just showering but changing and what not. Any tips?
In other news, Ikey is still not feeling too hot. I was a bit harder on him in the night last night because I can tell he’s getting used to waking in the night again I didn’t nurse him in the night at all and now I’m full of milk! Crazy how your milk comes back fast when you need it to!! He’s hardly had any solids, just nursing. His appetite is still low but the fever is slowly getting lower.
We saw a doctor at the walk in yesterday who was really nice. He had an English accent so that always makes me like someone more (dumb huh?). He complimented Isaac on his nature saying that he likes that he’s calm but still looking around at everything and wanting to touch everything. He just stood there and watched him for quite some time. I could tell he was used to babies. Most docs just look in their ears and send me away. He pushed on his tummy and looked in his mouth and everything which I appreciate. I was then understanding of why the heck it took so long for him to get to me. He said he was fine though, most likely just a virus of sorts. I know someone who’s baby is going through the exact same thing so there must be a bug going around. Poor baby though, I just want him to get better :(.
