While I may not be the quickest decision-maker, there are some questions that I wouldn't have to think twice about before answering.
Say, for example, someone wanted to exempt me from one parenting duty for life. I would spit out "bath time" faster than most people can blink. I can handle diapers. I can handle the painstaking process of clipping tiny fingernails and toenails, even when a child is plotting escape. I can deal with folding tons of baby, toddler, and child-sized laundry.
More than any other routine, bath time exhausts me. Sure, after baths the girls are so fresh and sweet and pretty-smelling -- and I simply love how their hair look when freshly washed and combed -- and did I mention that I have this thing for lavender-scented baby bath wash? Despite this, after bath time, I'm bedraggled -- tired, wet, and sometimes battling premature gray hairs due to scenarios such as this.
If someone offered you exemption from one parenting duty, what would your choice be?
