bath time.

I cannot WAIT for my son to take showers. Really.
If you asked me what one parental duty I just don't enjoy doing, it would be bath time. Isn't that awful? You'd think it'd be being woken-up in the middle of the night by my son because he wants me to sleep in his room. Or taking him to the doctor for shots. Or putting him in time-out for not-so-great behavior of some sort.
But no. It is bath time.
And really, I don't have any good reason for not really liking to give baths other than it's the end of the day and I just want to get him in bed so I can have a little quite time. (I sound so selfish...)
But I think all of us parents would agree - there's that ONE thing that's just not your favorite thing to do.
(This all leads to guilt. I'm so so good at guilt. Maybe it's a bit of Jewish guilt in me...I don't know. But I'm good at it. Anyway, I digress...and I will have a whole separate post on that guilt. Mom guilt to be exact.)

Last night bath time was a little fun. I brought in my camera and tried to get a few shot of Max having a grand old time splashing. 'Cause even though I don't like bath time, Max does!

Oh it's not just you! The whole "I just want them to get into bed so I can have a little me time"....I hear ya!! I don't mind bath time until I have to wash their hair, which each of them hate. And the getting them in their PJ's when all they want to do is run around naked. And the drying my daughter's long hair. And the drying off the ENTIRE bathroom because of them splashing water everyWHERE!! Other than that, bath time is fine. Ha! Cute photos!!
