How would you answer the question, "When is the last time you took a bath?"I have to be honest... I'm 42 years old and I love bath time. Give me some aromatherapy bath salts, a few pumps of body wash for bubbles, and a large cuppa joe (in the morning) or an extra large pour of wine in the evening, and I am happy. My bath tub and bath time are so not-fancy that they binge on being ghetto, but I love it.Unfortunately, whenever I talk about relaxing in a hot bath, a lot of moms respond to me saying, "I don't have time to take a bath. What are you talking about? I can't even remember the last time I took a bath." That response is often followed up by a laundry list of reasons why they can't take a bath...I'm too busy. I never have a minute to myself. That sounds lovely. But I...My kids are too little and I can't leave them unattended. My friend, there are a million reasons (even legit ones) why you might not be hopping in the bathtub. I get it.
