I voted yes, always, because that's what I did when Del was a babe...I've written before about the calming effects of water on her spirited nature.
As she got older, sometimes I'd just pop her into the tub alone...more room for "swimming races", practicing holding her breath, etc.
DH showered with her from an early age, but only when I was around to hand her off to. Now we sometimes shower together, and very occasionally bathe (like when I have to sit with her and a tub full of conditioner to get the tangles out of her hair).
a few weeks ago the 2 of us played hokey pokey in the shower, shaking water all over like two wet dogs. She's 6.5 yrs old. I don't know when she'll stop wanting to, but I'll say yes whenever she asks until then!!
