Singing in The Rain...

My little "A" has been wanting to take a shower by herself for a long time. For some reason, she just couldn't do it. She wouldn't even go in the shower with me. She didn't even like sprinklers. Anything that had to do with her face getting wet, she wanted nothing to do with it. Until recently. "A" is the type of girl that once she makes up her mind to do something, she does it all the way. So, one evening "K" was getting ready to take a shower and she said to me "Mom, I want to take a shower. All by myself." I said "really, all by yourself? You will need to get your face wet." "I know." she said. She was ready, really ready. So, I got the shower ready and she got in...and loved it. Several times during the shower she said "this is great, mom" and "I don't need your help, mom I can do it all by myself." I did need to help her wash her hair, though and of course make sure everything was washed. I sat on a step stool waiting for her to finish while listening to her sing "singing in the rain" It was really quite cute. Finally, I had to drag her out. I decided to conduct a post-shower interview because she was so proud of herself.
Here she is...

This actually makes me very happy because now I have 2 kiddos who can take a shower. My back is also very thankful for this. :)
