One night I decided to jump in the tub with Ingrid, bringing Otis with me. Ingrid thought this was the most exciting thing! She played while I held Otis in the water. He enjoyed it much better than his infant bathtub baths. I got a chance to relax a little bit with the kids. It was good all around. Except for the fact that our tub is too small for all of us!
When we visited my mom we took advantage of the ENORMOUS garden soaker tub. Ingrid squealed that it was just like a swimming pool! I loved the fact I could actually sink down in the water and stretch my legs out and still have room for Ingrid and her twelve thousand toys. Even though I don't envision us having a big house, we NEED to have a big tub I've decided.
Last night was another family bath. Ingrid was all smiles, Otis nursed the whole time, and I took a nice deep breath after the long day of dealing with Ingrid being sick and whiny. Like I said, it's good for everyone involved and is a perfect ending to a busy day.
