Before kids, Zach and I showered every weekend together. It wasn’t the “sex in the shower” experience you might be thinking. It began as a way to both get out of the house at the same time and still get hot water. It turned into a great place to have conversations and touch base without the distractions.
A week before Isaac was born I started crying and made Zach promise that we’d still shower together at least once a week.
Five years and two kids later, I take only two to three showers a week. Most of those are with one or both kids, so this morning when I had to get ready, the kids were still in bed and Zach had to get ready as well, I thought for a minute about showering together and then, I looked at him and asked, “can you go without a shower today?”
Yep, I relish those quiet moments alone where I can turn the water as hot as it will go.
