Please tell me I am not the only mama whose dc....

HAS to take a shower with you. He takes a bath before bed with his brother every night and I like to take my showers in the morning. I am one of those people who will not go out if I havent showered. So now EVERY day once my 3 yr old hears the shower start to run, he runs to the bathroom, screaming crying and throwing a fit. He wont stop till I tell him to get undressed, take your diaper off, take your socks off, etc..... if you wanna shower. He strips within 30 seconds and comes in the shower. Then I have to hold him with his back to the water cause he refuses to stand in the shower alone. Then a minute later he tells me he is all done and wants to get out. I go through all that for him to be in the shower only a minute. Either he just wants to be in the shower cause mommy is, maybe hes a clean freak or just going through some weirdo stage. Am I the only one or are there other mamas who toddlers just HAVE to shower with them everyday? I dont make a huge deal out of it cause its kinda cute but I would like to take a shower in peace every now and then without haveing to wake up super early.

It is cute and I love to do it, he doesnt even want to wash while he is in there. He just wants to be held under the warm running water a minute then hes done.
I dont want him to think its wrong!
My friend thinks its wierd cause hes 3 but Im his mommy and its not like he could even care that I am naked and looks at it in that way. Hes only 3, he doesnt care what my body looks like or that Im different

What if you tried giving him a "shower" first. Maybe he just likes the feeling of the water. Then tell him it is your turn to shower. Don't know just a thought.

Ds rarely takes a bath anymore. He showers either with me or with dh. I don't think it's a big deal at all. I actually like it because it's quicker than a bath. Sometimes I do want to take a shower alone so I will wait until ds is napping or in bed for the night.

I stopped taking a shower with my older DS a little after he turned 3. Now that he's 4 he does it on his own just fine.
