I don’t spend a lot of time examining my knees. They are there. They work most of the time. I pretty much take them for granted.
Lately, as I’ve been doing the scrub-down in the shower I have noticed that my knees have what looked like dry patches on them. Even that didn’t cause me to inspect them much closer.
A few days ago, however, I had a few extra seconds when drying off after my shower to take a closer look (and when I say a few extra seconds, I’m being truthful. My shower time is always a delicate balance between blissful solitude and hearing the babies screaming in the next room while Andrea yells over the screaming to find out what’s taking me so long). But I digress. What I noticed upon careful inspection was not your typical dry skin.
I have calluses.
On my knees.
From always crawling around on the carpet while playing with the twins.
So, do I keep the calluses for the time being because now that I think about it, the crawling around has become less painful on the knees? Or do I loofah those bad boys right outta here?
See what parenthood has done to me? It’s come down to me now contemplating using a loofah.
