It's getting better!

Well, we stuck with the big boy baths in the tub without giving in and going back to the sink... and it is getting better! We just had to figure out what works for us.... Lucas likes to sit in the blue seat (with a towel around the front piece to provide comfort when he "scoots") with the water up high for optimal splashing and playing with toys. Then, we let all the water out except for a couple of inches and he sits on a big sponge while I bathe him... much easier to get to all of him, and it is much easier to lean him back so the shampoo and water don't get in his eyes. It is killing my back, but we have a squeaky clean (and happy) boy!

Yes....does kill the back and knees. I have a stool like thing but it is more trouble than it is worth. I guess now I know why older folks complain so about worn out bodies...their kids did it to will all be worth it and we will just see the doctors when we get them grown and out the door. For now, backaches remain and the joy of motherhood can't be beat!!! Hugs!!! So glad bathtime is getting better! PS ....we love our bear sponge!
