45/52 – Familiar

45/52 - Familiar

Despite being born somewhat of a fish, the Doodle goes through phases where she loves the bath, and then she hates the bath.  We’re in the midst of a “I don’t want a bath, shower or anything that involves getting clean” phase, which means that the mommies need to get creative.

We threw out something familiar for the Doodle to consider.  She took the bait, and tonight we took bathing back to where it all began – the kitchen sink.

Nearly 2.5 years ago, the sink was quite roomy. It’s where she had her first bath with her Mama and Nana.  Now, not so much.  But that didn’t matter. I mean what’s not to love about cramming and folding your 30 pound-ish body into a bubble laden tiny tub?

    Oh yeah, we’ve had those bath phases too. One of them conveniently while I was visiting my mom.
    Mom- “Why is she doing this?”
    Me- “I don’t know! Because she’s a toddler?”

    One trick that’s worked for us is to turn the water on very low flow and give her a small cup to play with. But it sounds like you’ve worked out your own solution!

    I cannot BELIEVE the tiny Doodle pic. It’s really a pity you didn’t blog then.

      So the kitchen sink worked twice. Now we’re getting lots of mileage out of coloured baths (so we add some food colouring of her choice). Although last week she had a meltdown down because she wanted a purple bath, but didn’t want red or blue in her water 😉

      I think I’ll pull out the cup card when needed, though I’m thinking I’ll need something bigger and more grandiose that she can put under there. Heck, she’s even gone for a bath in her clothes because that seems to be fun!
