Big Boy Bath

Kc and I decided a few nights ago that we would try to give Noah a bath in a real bathtub...a big boy bath. Mr. Man just loves his bath time in the kitchen sink and we {make that I} were hesitant to make any changes to said routine. My little man is quite the stickler for routine.

Daddy-O filled up the tub {not too much}, brought in his tub toys {that currently live in our kitchen sink}, and added his current favorite ball {a red wiffle ball}. At first, Noah WOULD NOT sit down in the tub. It took brute strength from both parents to get the little man to sit on his hiney. As the tears flowed down his cheek, he spotted the red ball floating around and quickly grabbed it. Everything is better with a red ball in your hand {if you can't have Charlie, that is}.Noah was definitely not a fan of the tub. We were able to lather up our Little Stinkpot and rinse him down {although rinsing his hair was a bit tricky because water cannot drip past his trach} before the tears started to flow again. Whether the tub was too big, too echoey, too low to the ground {Mama's knees agree with that one}, or too confined {we have glass doors}, Mr. Man did not have as much fun as he normally does in the bath. I'm glad we tried out the big boy tub, but for now, I think we'll continue to take baths in the sink. Noah Man sure is happy about that!

  1. You're in good company Noah. Your Auntie Nessa took a bath in the kitchen sink until she was 3!

  4. I never thought about actually bathing A & E in the sink; we went straight to the big boy bathtub from the baby bathtub. But, man, it was SO hard on the knees and made for a grumpy mommy. With C, I am looking forward to trying out the sink for awhile once he is out of the baby bathtub and sitting on his own. I think bath time will be A LOT more fun - for both of us :-)
