Almost as Bad as the Scene in Psycho

posted by Momo Fali on December 13, 2010

Although my son will be nine years old in the spring, he still needs our help when he’s taking a shower.  After he has cleaned his body, one of us goes in to aide him in washing his hair.  Because he is on his second set of ear tubes and doesn’t hear well, we do our best to keep dirty water and shampoo from entering his ear canals.

The other night, I walked into the bathroom and asked, “Are you ready for me to wash your hair?”

Which is when I realized that he’s eight years old going on adulthood, because when I pulled back the shower curtain I saw him standing with his hand outstretched in my direction as he said, “Hey, Mom!  Pull my finger.”

    I don't know if this is something you've tried, if it is I apologise. When I had grommets my doctor told me to put vaseline on a bit of cotton wool and plug my ears while I shower. Keeps the ears nice and water free. 🙂

    Again, get him an agent, get a TV deal, you'll never have to work again, and you'd make one heck of a stage mom…the hairnet will get you better treatment with craft services!!
