Okay, then why even bring it up?

It is weird. Period.

There's all sorts of weirdness going on here. I'm trying to envision a scenario where a "we shampoo each other's hair sometimes!" comment would even come up, but I can't.

It would come up in the "we shower together" conversation. I don't see how that's so hard to envision. They're kids. Most kids like to share random information unprompted.

"Boys, you'll probably want to figure out a shower schedule for in the morning"

"No need to, we'll shower together?"

"Oh? Is this something you do at home too?"

"Yeah, we shower together at home. We shampoo each other's hair sometimes too."

Yep, junior high kids have got to be more savvy than that.

Absolutely!

I have many friends who are from countries with mandatory military service for all men. They said there were many instances when they have to shower under very limited time with so few shower heads available. It's part of their military training, and I can understand why they would need those time-saving skills in the battlefield. These triplets are no different from that type of military training. They are pretty much born in a world from the very start, to adapt to most places that are designed for one, but there are three of them instead. Sharing pretty much everything... I can see how exhausting and financially challenging raising triplets can be. Can most parents actually afford to give each kid their own bedrooms if you suddenly have triplets instead of only expecting one baby? How about their own bathrooms? Also will you spend time to individually bathe each baby? Or isn't it more time-saving if one just bathe them together? It's actually easier for the mother if they operate with military efficiency without much fuss about space and other considerations. I personally think they can learn adapt themselves later to whichever society they grow up in and figure out about privacy themselves. I don't regard my friends who had served in the military as having of a less need for privacy at all than those who have no military background at all.
Are these kids in the military? No. Sharing a bedroom is totally normal. Bathing babies and toddlers together isnt unusual and is efficient. Sharingn ashower at that age? Not at all comparable. Read the previous post I quoted.

Only thing that strikes me as odd is shampooing each other's hair. Not exactly hard to shampoo one's own hair
Exactly. It's a whole twin or triplet thing. Some of the features will continue all their lives. When you communicate with your sister you could text/write/say how the boys are doing, great at this, fun with that, loud fun shower in the morning together that's okay right and we're off to a busy day at school with practice after. That kind of not making a big deal of it.

Probably time for this to be closed. OP asked Mom, and she said it’s kosher.

I have multiples. Not even remotely a "thing"

I asked a friend who's a parent of triplets. She was horrified. And she actually grew up on a commune.
