A mother-daughter duo on TLC's new series sMothered is catching headlines for their strange shower routine.
Check out a clip from the series here:
We're not trying to judge but imagine shaving head-to-toe for a night out... only for your mum to tell you that you've missed a spot.
Still, mum Mary and her teen daughter Brittani, from Jensen Beach, Florida, are proud of their extremely close, squeaky-clean relationship.
And if they seem pretty comfortable in each other's presence, it's because they've been showering together for years, with Mary saying: "I have been taking showers and helping Brittani since she was five."
Look, we aren't saying don't help your literal baby clean themselves, but as soon as that kid hits secondary school, leave them to it.
Still, that's not how Mary took it she steps into the shower, she can be heard telling her daughter to 'move it' then as the water hits her, she says: "Ah, that feels so good."
The mum then starts to wash the 19-year-old's hair, telling her: "You need to tan or something, honey. You're so white."
And Mary couldn't think of a better way to wash, adding: "The best way to start our day is in the shower."
We thought the best way to start the day was with a big breakfast but, hey, each to their own.
Mary is also quick to hit back at those who think her relationship with her daughter is weird.
"I love her, and I don't see anything wrong with it. I don't believe I set out to have a relationship this close to Brittani, it's something that was supposed to be," the mum explained.
Brittani chimed in to say: "When my mom does simple things like washing my hair or my body, it makes me feel comforted.
"Plus, I'm only 19, I haven't moved away. If that was the case, she would probably die from separation anxiety."
If that wasn't enough to convince people of their morning routine, Mary told the New York Post that she started showering with her daughter because Brittani was having panic attacks, which they thought might've been brought on by hot water.
And, actually, that does make it seem a little more understandable.
