30 Days of Happiness, Day 22: A Warm Bath Every Night

I've figured out the secret to getting a warm bath every night. It involves me, a slippery baby, and a bathtub full of warm water.



Charlie is about the size of a nine-month old. He's a big boy and needs a place to stretch out when he takes a bath. The little infant tub wasn't cutting it anymore. Plus it just wasn't any fun either.

So bathing together it is. And we love it. Charlie is much more fun when he has a little more mobility, and we've had some good moments in the bathtub. He's more prone to laughing when we're in the big bathtub whereas in his baby bathtub, we could never even get him to crack a smile.

I realize that to some people, bathing with your kid might seem a little weird, but it's actually not weird at all. It's a good way for us to spend some time together at the end of the day before Roy puts Charlie to bed.

Plus, I get a warm bath out of the deal. What's not to like?



Now, if only we could get Charlie to love sleeping as much as he loves bathtime...

How do you wash your hair and all of that good stuff while holding him in there? Is this a dumb question? ;)

not having children that seems like a better way to go than the baby tub.

my mother would always bathe w/ us when we're babies
