Oh God! I take HOT STEAMY BATHS!!! That is how I escape from the kids for a while. I light my candles, close and lock my door and I am in HEAVEN!! It really soothes me and I am totally relaxed at that point. I block out everything and just imagine I am in some luxurious hotel relaxing while on vacation on my very own island.

That is totally my time to myself so I enjoy it and take at least 15-30 minutes for a bath or shower. Once I turn on the water, everyone knows to leave me alone LOL.

I can be in and out in 5 min (even wash my hair) due to the fact that I have 4 kids ages 5 and under so 5 minutes is the most I get (unless my hubby is here to watch them).

Oh whew! I think I need to take a lot of my time now since I still don't have a kid. Though I am an expectant mom now. When I read your shower time, it makes me realized that when you have kids sometimes you tend to forget the time for yourself but more for your children. But you deserves still all the time in the world in taking your bath.

Less than 10 minutes to get clean. Then I turn up the hot water and just stand for another 10 minutes.

Yeah I only shower for ten mins myself, maybe you should charge them some of their allowance if they stay in the shower two long !! I'd say they would shower real quick !!

It really depends. If I need to unwind after a hard day at work and I have some time on my hand, I will take a long shower. Otherwise Im usually jumping in the shower and then jumping back out on the run.

The shower/bathtub is like my little escape, I can spend an hour or even 2 hours in there. I love to just sit in there and relax, maybe read or fall asleep.

A shower should take no more than 15 minutes, much less for kids so if they take so long might I suggest what my Mum used to do to me :P She would simply shut off the water supply until I come out of the bath!

I take about 15-20 min, but I've got long hair that takes awhile to wash & I shave in the shower. My 10 year old can take 30 min+ if I don't remind her that other people live here & need to use the bathroom occasionally too.
