i'm glad i'm not the only one!

2 x per week unless there is some reason to get an extra (ie wetiing the bed or something) 1 time with full wash, hair, body everything and then one mid week really just a quick soak.

I try to give him a bath or shower every other day. More if necessary, less if he is clean and we need to get to bed. But baths are mostly a soak in the water. He hates having his hair washed so it is very short right now.

He tends to find a way to get dirty, either by dirt, markers, food, or just in general so he needs his baths.
