Bath, Bath, Baby

Dinner is over and once again I have thoroughly enjoyed putting cherries and avocado in my hair.  Daddy looks at me and just shakes his head and I hear those five words “I guess it’s bath night.”  At first I don’t know whether to laugh or cry for I have gone through several phases of bath loving or shall we say bath hating.
When I was tiny, bath time was great!  Mom or Dad held me in the sink while the other one gently massaged me with soap.  They would rub my head and use a gentle spray to rinse me off.  That was the life.

Then as I got a bit bigger, they had to move me to the tub.  Mom and Dad thought I would love my lounge chair, but boy were they wrong.  I’m an on the go kind of kid and laying down for a bath just didn’t feel right.

This quickly lead to shower time.  This was wonderful as long as Mommy or Daddy could hurry.  If they were trying to take a shower too, forget about it.  I don’t have time like that to waste in a day.

Now, I take a bath in the big tub without a chair.  It took some getting use to but now I’m a champion at sitting on the wet surface.  In fact, now I have figured out how to crawl around on it a bit.  Come to think of it bath time is pretty fantastic since I figured out how to sit in the tub.  I get to play basketball thanks to my uncle and this holiday called Christmas, Daddy puts on puppet shows with my wash frog, and I can splash all sorts of water around without making Mommy cry about cleaning the floor again.  The only part I don’t like so much now is getting the soap out of my hair.  Luckily, Mommy found this pitcher that makes it a little better.  This thing has a soft front so it fits on my head and keeps the dreaded water out of my eyes.

Whatever phase of bath loving or hating you are in I guess we have to deal with it because Mommies and Daddies don’t seem to be okay with food in the hair or super dirty babies.  Live it up too because I hear when we get bigger we have to do the bathing by ourselves!
