For a while, I had a hard time figuring out what to do with my son when I showered. Once he started crawling, I was worried about him scooting over to play with the plunger. Then he started walking, so I had to worry about the plunger AND the toilet. So for a few times, I’ll admit that I did bring him to the gym just so I could get a private shower. I mean, a private shower in a room with a bunch of other naked ladies, but I didn’t have to worry about any of them licking the plungers.
Anyway, I brought him to the gym for showering purposes like, twice. But both times I did this after a workout, so I felt bad about leaving him with the gm daycare ladies for like an hour and a half, so now he just goes in the shower with me. Which he loves, because it’s super-fun water play time, and I think is just ok, because I can keep an eye on him but I also can’t shave my legs.
Also: The gym I go to does not actually have a sauna. It’s really no frills. I just drew the sauna thingy because I don’t know where else in a gym changing room you talk to people. Generally it’s a very “let’s all pretend this isn’t happening” environment.
