What to Avoid in the Bathtub

Note to self...

When playing hide-and-go-seek with kids, always remember to remove your socks prior to hiding in the bathtub.

Squishy cotton on the feet is never a good feeling.

I love that commercial. My son didn't like it at all. LOL He said it hurt his ears.

Pat Hatt said...

haha yeah wet socks suck. FYI bare feet and stepping in a hairball sucks more though.

Been there. Done that. Actually, this applies to any time my 12 yo and 9 yo have baths or showers. Seriously, how can someone get so much water on the floor after having a bath?????

And of course I forget this every time I go into their bathroom. :P

Soggy socks are never a good idea *giggle*

Elena said...

Wait a second...were you hiding under water in the bathtub? Now, that's a good dad!!!

I'm always in socks, can't stand to be barefoot and know the "wet-sock feeling." In one word…

Yuck!

Btw, I like the commercial but … it's not realistic.

Oh, I SO know what you are talking about! Grr, I hate wet socks!

Bleh to wet socks! That is a horrible feeling. It's almost as bad as the very end of your sleeve being wet. Omg, just thinking about a wet sleeve end makes me cringe! Roll them up before you wash your hands.... :)

Audrey Allure said...

Haha, definitely a must.

Kristen @ Motherese said...

Ha!

Good tip - and also a good suggestion on where to hide. My kids find me too quickly in my usual spots! :)

Only one word for THAT situation...

OY!

Stay safe (and soggy sock-free) out there.

ewww! Just thinking about wet socks gives me the heebie jeebies!

Carol Kilgore said...

Eewww. I hate that feeling. Wet jeans are bad, too.

terri said...

Well at least you didn't SIT in the tub!

Elisabeth Hirsch said...

This is so true LOL! The same has been true for going near our kitchen sink as well. Not a good time :0) *still giggling*

LOL. Yeah...I hate wet socks.

My four year old was once so involved in a game of hide and go seek, that he peed in the bathtub instead of risking leaving his hiding place to use the toilet. So wet socks may be something completely grosser in my house.

Oh I HATE wet socks!

Katherines Corner said...

ahh soggy but fun. hugs!

Lydia Kang said...

Phew, I thought you were going to say you slipped and whacked your head!

That happens to me every time my son forgets to the GREAT DANE outside to potty before leaving for work and I come home, 12 hours later ...

Miss Caitlin S. said...

haha,you play hide and go seek a lot! That's awesome. Older brothers and Dads (Uncles, etc) who play along with games like that when you're young, are always more fun than their female counterparts. I dont know why that is. This is just merely a memory I had when I was young.

And you're right, that is highly unpleasant :)

My kids love taking a bath while wearing socks - preferably many pairs at the same time!

At least you didn't sit..
