Kids who swim aren’t shy in the bathroom. They will change clothes or pee in front of anyone. If you have ever seen a kid trying to put on a tech suit while their body is wet, you know exactly what I mean.
Sophie was changing out of her suit the other day. I happened to be in the locker room at the time and saw her naked butt sitting on the bench. I had her get up and explained the bench was full of butt germs. A few moments later a lady came in, pulled an apple out of her bag, sat it on the bench, put her back back in the locker and then picked up the apple and….yep, took a bite.
Sophie had that look on her face, you know the one, the one that says “I am getting ready to say something that will embarrass the hell out of you”. I whisked her out of the bathroom. I will never look at an apple the same again.
I cleaned the girls bathroom today. The upside of swimming is the free hot showers after practice. Despite the fact that they never shower at home, their bathroom is disgusting. I had to use bleach, scrub brushes, gloves and even a putty knife to spruce things up. What would it be like if they actually used it?
It is clean enough to eat off the floor now. Even an apple. I give it 24 hours tops.
