I wanted to take a bath, I was just getting over having the flu and soaking in a super hot bath sounded wonderful. I told my husband that I wanted to go soak and he asked if I could take the baby in with me since she needed her hair washed. Well, that meant the water would not be nearly how hot I wanted but I could always bathe her first and then heat my water more after she was done, so I agreed.
I managed to sneak into the bathroom without the other kids noticing, Destiny was busy with a puzzle, Kairi was watching her favorite show and Alex was playing his DS. Amelia got really excited when I took her in there, she loves baths and anytime I take her in and shut the door she starts trying to rip all her clothing off. She managed to get everything but her diaper off and sat there dancing back and fourth while she watched me trying to get the hoards of toys out of the tub. We had one of those bathroom toy organizers but it disappeared so right now I put the bigger stuff in the sink and the smaller stuff in a plastic bin. I finished picking all the plastic sharks up and finally got the bath started.
I left Amelia’s measuring cups in so she could play. We were happily playing fill the cups with bubbles when there was a knock on the door. My first thought was, ” Drat! We have been discovered.” I asked who was there and what they needed, it was Destiny and she had to go potty. I let her in and of course she started in on wanting to come in the bath with us. I told her over and over there was not room, she would need to wait till later and that maybe she could take a bath with Kairi later. It took several minuets of negotiating with her and she finally went back out into the living room.
Not even a minute later Alex came in to play twenty questions. After asking me everything from what I was doing to what was for dinner, he noticed I took all the sharks out. Before I could stop him he grab them and said, ” Oh mommy, you forgot these” and then dumped them all in. Amelia of course squealed with delight. I was not so pleased, it is not easy to relax when you have a toddler, measuring cups and a dozen plastic sharks in the bath with you.
I let her play for a couple more minuets, scrubbed her up and just got out. I handed Amelia off to Chris and quickly informed him that come bed time, the bathroom was mine. I was getting a redo.
