Splish, Splash....I HATE giving Baths!
It is no secret in the blog world that giving my kids baths ranks right up there with getting a root canal! I don't even try to pretend that I enjoy it! However, with Josh not usually getting home till late, and having two kids that I swear forget they are humans and believe they are wild banshees, it is a chore I have to endure every night. This is part of the reason that I don't have very many pictures of them during bath time, because the last thing on my mind is grabbing the camera before we head upstairs. However, the other night, my camera just happened to be in my bathroom (don't ask, that's a whole nother blog in itself) so I took the opportunity to snap some shots.
Don't they look so cute and innocent? Don't let them fool you! These were taken in between dodging rubber ducks being launched at my head and Malakai trying to dunk Leila! It hurts my back so bad to where I have contemplated even getting in there with them so I don't have to lean over the edge to wash them! Not to mention the fact that Josh has recently taught Malakai to do cannon balls at the pool, so now he seems to think the bath tub is the perfect place to perfect them! Ugh! Then there is the hair washing! I have never been a fan of the visors, or cups that bend so water doesn't get in their eyes. I just pour the cup of water over their head, face, body, etc. till all the soap is gone. They don't scream for long...usually :) It doesn't really burn does it? I mean the bottle says "Tear Free!"
I couldn't resist adding the video :) Leila doesn't quite get the difference between taking a video and a picture. Every time she sees the camera she immediately scrunches her face and says cheese!
