She revealed that she doesn't shower everyday and asked for opinions of other parents on this situation, reports Daily Dot. She wrote, "Ok so I'm having a few drinks with friends last night. We are all female a mix of parents and non parents. One friend mentions she is struggling to find time for o shower every day since she had her baby."

The woman went ahead to clarify that she has two kids, one of them under the age of five and she works part time. She showers on, "work days plus one extra day" and takes extra showers in case of, "exercising/having sex/on period etc." She also adds that, "my days off usually consist of playing at home, walking dog, school run and maybe park," giving her no time to get into the bath. She only showers three days a week and asked other parents, if she was , "disgusting" for doing so. She got mixed reactions from the popular parting forum. A user wrote, "Personally I think 3 times a week is pretty grim, sorry. I am a shower everyday person. I can’t get going in the morning without one to be honest."
