You are outside bathing two stinky, hairy dogs. Once finished you realize you still need to shower your stinky children who are currently running around the yard begging you to spray them with the hose. You run inside and grab the shampoo, strip them down, and hose them down like you continuously threaten to do. Kids have a great time, and you’ve just saved yourself the headache of 2 young boys fighting over bath toys.

‘Sheer genius’, or ‘Hey Sara, your white trash is peeking out again’?

    Genius. We do showers ’round these parts and that’s not much different aside from the fact that it’s outside!

    Love it! Why haven’t I thought to do this yet?

    Assuming a tall privacy fence…I say cool beans! I can’t wait to try it myself one day!

    I’m going with genius, too! Why haven’t I thought of this!?

    I vote for sheer genius, but on the other hand, I was accused of having a white trash moment once, no twice. Okay, so it happens all the time.

    This is one of those times where genius and white trash collide. There’s nothing wrong with a little white trash once in a while.

    Anything that makes the day (especially the end of the day!) go smoother is a blessing. Don’t question it… just enjoy the spontaneous new fun way to bathe!

    Were you in the front yard or back yard? If it was front yard and the dogs were tied up the the rusting car that has no tires, I would have to say white trash. If it was in the back yard and there are no old refrigerators or rusting cars then it is sheer genius.

    It’s only white trash if you have a beer in one hand and the hose in the other!

    Who says white trash can’t be genius too?

    I’m thinking genius if you were in the back yard, maybe slightly white trash-y if you were in the front yard. But, mostly pure genius.

    It just seems logical to me. With, perhaps, a hint of genius.

    Depends on the weather. Hot and Sunny? Genius. Cool and overcast? Kinda trashy. =P

    Sheer genius. In fact so much so that I must copy 😛

    This is exactly why I love you so! I was thinking about putting together a slacker mom’s guide to parenting and this just made the list.

    White trash it may be, but bath time is a pain in the ass–I say, well done.

    Who said white trashy ideas aren’t ingenious anyway? 😆 Proper bathtub/shower using peeps is so dumb. 😆 I have nearly thought about doing this same thng when the boys hit the neighbor’s sprinkler for fun. But living in an association, I’m sure I would get flogged. :roll:

    Ohhhh…. total white trash is peeking. May I join & I’ll bring the rita mix? Or should it be two 40’s in paper bags? I was SHAVING our dog outside last week (& did a PATHETIC job, might I add), then bathed her down… then yes… hosed off the manical child as well. Why not????

    Genius! Now I just have to get a dog or two to use as an excuse to hose down my children! 😉
