Tonight was bath night. Book Boy tried to get me to give him the “smell test” (sometimes if he doesn’t smell bad I let him skip his bath) but no, he was playing outside all day and needs a bath. The kids both love taking baths, but it’s kind of a pain sometimes because BB in particular likes to take a long bath. On a school night, when we like him to be in bed by 8:00, that can cause a bit of a problem.
So tonight, I suggested that BB should try taking a shower. I’ve suggested that in the past to no avail, but he was all over the idea tonight. “It will be like our own little water park!”
Little Sister and BB cleared all the toys out of the tub, Tim warmed up the water, and BB hopped in. He loved it! When he was done, LS took her turn. She took a break in the middle of the shower to let Tim wash her hair in the tub, but she did great in the shower too. I’m not sure that we saved any time tonight, but I’m hoping that once the novelty wears off the kids will take shorter showers.
